It is my plan to give you some useful information in this article about first time home buyer grants which will help you with this exciting and much sought after venture.
Discover the money hand shake with home mortgage grants.
To begin with, unfortunately, the State of Montana does not offer a
Montana first time home buyer grant program for its residents. But there are some programs available that can assist.
First, there are a couple of organizations who do offer assistance. One is called the NeighborWorks Montana (NWMT). They offer various programs that can help. Some of them may be deferred loans. They have limitations and restrictions you need to meet.
There is also the "Score Advantage Down Payment Assistance Program (DPA)." This program is designed to help those who don't have the funds needed for the down payment or closing costs. It can provide up to $6,500 in assistance for those who qualify. This is a loan so it will need to be paid back.
Additionally, there is a program called "MBOH Plus 0% Deferred Down Payment Assistance." This also is a second mortgage, but has zero interest and no payments feature. It's not a grant though! When you sell or refinance the home, you have to pay this off at that time. But still can be very helpful to those who want to get a home but cannot afford the second payment.
Most of these options require you to be a first time buyer. So what does that mean? It means you haven't owned a home for three years. Thus you can be considered a first time buyer again! That is good news.
If you would like to investigate the requirements for these programs, click here.
However, the good news is that the federal government does offer grant assistance for first time home buyers in Montana. 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 the Government Grants website. 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 also good to start a savings program. By putting money away you then can save up for the down payment. Then if you get a program that doesn't need the money you saved, awesome, the saved monies can go for other things you may need for the home.
After reading this page on housing grants, you may find yourself wanting see if you qualify for a mortgage. Choosing a lender that works well with these programs requires a little effort.
Perhaps a grant is not available in your state. Or you do not qualify for one. Don't get discouraged. If you still want to save money, check out this page that discusses the zero down payment program.
Otherwise, you may want to look at programs that have low down payment requirements.
