Hunting for Utah first time home buyer grants to purchase a home? Find the best grants/programs for home buying in Utah and other home mortgage grants available below.
So you want to buy a house in Utah. That is a big decision in any state, but a good one.
I'm sure you're excited but a little apprehensive as well. That is to be expected since this will probably be the biggest purchase you'll ever make. But don't let that overwhelm you.
Since it's usually the down payment monies that worry most people. On this page I plan to give you some useful information to help with that.
Looking for home mortgage grants and finding one is so rewarding that it is like having a huge stack of hundreds given to you.
To begin with, unfortunately, the State of Utah does not offer a Utah first time home buyer grant program for its residents.
But they don't leave their residents without some help. They have a second loan program to help with the down payment and closing costs. It is called the "Subordinate Loan" program. This is not a grant, but a loan to be paid back.
If you have owned a home is the past, you may want to consider the "HomeAgain" program. But if it has been three or more years since you owned a home, the "HomeFirst" option is a worthwhile look see.
Another program that is very helpful is the "Score Loan" program. It is a program that helps those who don't have a very good credit score.
If you do have a good credit score, consider a "NoMI Loan" program. It is designed for those with a higher credit score. The benefit of this program is the removal of mortgage insurance. That can save you money if your scores are in great shape.
There are various eligibility requirements and limitations that you will have to look into, but it does make it possible to get a house close to zero monies down. That's not too bad.
If you want to check out the requirements and restrictions, visit this website.
Some cities and counties have grant programs for home buying, so don't hesitate to hunt in the area where you are looking to buy.
However, the good news is that the federal government does offer grant assistance for first time home buyers in Utah. 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 Visit 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.
Whether it is a grant or some type of assistance program, you usually need to find a lender who will work with these. The loan product that is usually the best to work with these is FHA.
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.
