Pursuing Idaho first time home buyer grants to purchase a home? Find the best options for buying a home in Idaho and other assistance choices below.
You would like to buy a house in Idaho! Good for you! Purchasing a home in any state is an exciting prospect!
Although it can be unnerving as you dig through the process, don't let it. Sometimes with all the paperwork and documents you have to supply can get to you. But it's worth the effort!
I plan to help with some useful information
about Idaho first time home buyer grants which will assist you with this
exciting and much sought after venture.
Receiving a home mortgage grant is like searching and searching with a magnifying glass until you find the grant money you needed.
To begin with, the State of Idaho does offer an Idaho first time home buyer grant program for its residents. This is good news because not all states are able to offer assistance to first time home buyers.
This program is called "Forgivable Grant." What's nice is you can use this program whether you are a first time buyer or not. Although, you do have to stay in the home a minimum of seven years to be forgiven. Another requirement is they want you to put up some of your own money as well. But to have it forgivable makes it worth checking out.
They also have a second mortgage program that can be used for the down payment or closing costs. It is a fixed rate program that is spread over 10 years with very low monthly payments.
Idaho also offers a homebuyer tax credit. This allows you to use some of your mortgage interest paid to be applied to your income taxes owed. Pretty cool!
Of course these programs have requirements and limitations you will need to investigate before pursuing.
You should visit the Idaho Housing and Finance Association to dig into the eligibility.
In addition, the federal government offers grant assistance for first time home buyers in Idaho. This program is maintained by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development and is called the Homes and Communities program.
Their website contains useful information and applications. The website for the grant program maintained by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development can be visited by using this link, HUD Grant Information.
Another website I would recommend that you view is Government Grants. This website offers a list of all federal government grant programs. It would be a good idea to take some time and browse through this site to see what it offers and the qualifications for application.
It is important to note that there are several local first time home buyer grant programs available from specific private organizations in Idaho as well.
