Looking for Wisconsin first time home buyer grants! Be sure to discover
this cool resource for grants/programs for home buying and other home mortgage options in the state of Wisconsin below.
So, you are considering the purchase of a home in Wisconsin. Purchasing a home in any state is an exciting prospect!
Exciting and sometimes intimidating! However, don't let yourself become overwhelmed with the process.
It is my plan to give you some useful information about grants that will help you with this exciting and much sought after venture.
Would you like to receive a pile of money? Sure you would! Qualifying for one of these home mortgage grants feels like you received a pile of money.
To begin with, the State of Wisconsin does not offer a Wisconsin first time home buyer grant program for its residents. But it does have some assistance options that can help.
Once of these programs is call the "Capital Access Advantage - Down Payment Assistance." It is a zero percent second with no monthly payments. It is payable when you sell or refinance your home. They have just changed one of their restrictions making this program more available.
Another one is called "Easy Close Advantage - Down Payment Assistance" program is designed as a loan that helps with your down payment and closing costs. There are some requirements and restrictions in using this program you will want to consider.
Additionally, there is a tax savings program called "WHEDA Tax Advantage." This is a savings on your federal income taxes yearly. It allows you to deduct a portion of your interest from your taxes. Wouldn't you agree that more money in your pocket is always worth looking into.
They have many other programs you may want to evaluate as well. You can find out more about these programs here.
The federal government also offers grant assistance for home buyers in Wisconsin. 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.
Of course, you should start a savings program. If you don't need the funds saved, you have monies for purchasing other necessary things for your new home.
Remember, not all lenders will work with these programs, so you must locate one who is not only familiar but knows how they work. So take time to select the right lender for you.
There may be some programs offered locally as well. Some banks have grants available. So do your homework on what is available locally as well.
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.
