Hunting for New Jersey first time home buyer grants to purchase that home? Find the best grants, programs for home buying in New Jersey and other down payment assistance available to you below.
Are you considering the purchase of a home in New Jersey? Purchasing a home in any state is an exciting prospect! I can help you.
It can be exciting yet sometimes terrifying! However, don't let yourself become overwhelmed with the process.
It is my plan to give you some useful
information about mortgage grants that can help with this emotional voyage.
To begin with, the State of New Jersey does not offer a New Jersey first time home buyer grant program for its residents. It used to, but now it has some awesome assistance programs that can become like a grant.
The state agency which maintains New Jersey's first time home buyer grant program is the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency.
The program is called "NJHMFA Down Payment Assistance Program." It starts off as a second mortgage with no interest and no payments. Then after 5 years it is forgiven. You can get up to $10,000 toward your down payment and closing costs. See how it can become a grant!
There are limitations for this program you should investigate. One restriction is you must be a first time home buyer. That means you haven't owned a home in the past three years.
The cool thing about this is you can become a first time home buyer again! New Jersey is really trying to help their residents to become home owners.
There are other programs you may want to check out when you visit the above website.
You should visit this site to determine your eligibility.
In addition, the federal government offers grant assistance for first time home buyers in New Jersey. 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. 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.
Also grants take time to process and fund. So be patient. Get the process started early in the year. Why? Sometimes funds run out before the end of the year and have to wait for funding the next year. Procrastination may hurt you, thus get your homework done early in the year.
Remember, not all lenders work with these assistance programs. So you need to find one who does.
In the mean time, start a savings program. Why should I do this? Since these programs take time and sometimes funds run out, you should move forward by beginning to save. It never hurts and then if you don't need the funds, well now you have money for other things you may want for the house.The FHA loan products are very flexible and work well with other assistance programs. Would you like to know where you stand with their requirements? Learn what those requirements are by clicking here.
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.
