Hunting for Nebraska first time home buyer grants to purchase that home? Find the best grants for home buying in Nebraska and other home mortgage grants or programs available below.
You want to purchase of a home in Nebraska? That is great! Although exciting it can also be scary.
But don't let the thought of purchasing a home bog you down! I plan to give you tons of useful information on grants to help you with this exciting adventure.
To begin with, the State of Nebraska does not offer a Nebraska first time home buyer grant program for its residents.
They used to but that particular program no longer exists. But it does offer a program that can help with these costs. The program is called "Homebuyer Assistance (HBA)."
This program has a 2nd mortgage that cannot be more than 5% of the purchase price of the home. It is a 10 years loan that must be paid back, but can be used for the down payment and closing costs. Unfortunately, you must have $1000 to put toward the down payment in order to qualify.
There is another program that offers a low interest rate for first time buyers, it is called "First Home Program." It has a low or no down payment requirement.
If it has been less than 3 years since you owned a home, you may want to investigate the low interest program called "First Home Targeted Program." It is a special program for certain areas of Nebraska and it is not limited to first time home buyers.
A cool thing is if you have been more than 3 years since you owned a home, you can be considered a first time buyer again!
The state agency which maintains these programs is the Nebraska Investment Finance Authority.
You should visit this website to determine your eligibility.
In addition, the federal government offers grant assistance for first time home buyers in Nebraska. 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 clicking HUD Grant Information.
Another website I would recommend that you Visit is the 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.
Remember, you want a lender who works with any of these Nebraska first time home buyer programs.
You should also start a savings plan. While searching and qualifying for a program you can begin to have a pile of money. Then if you don't need this saved money, you can purchase things you may want to get for your new home. It never hurts to save.
It can be as simple as saving the money you would use to eat out. Every little bit helps. The financial commitment you make in yourself will be worth your efforts!
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.

When buying a home out of state, should we wait for employment contracts? Or can we use our current state's bank? Find the answers here.
