Are you a first-time homebuyer? If so, you might be eligible for programs offered through your bank or credit union, or through city or state agencies.
Ask around before purchasing a home, so you can get all the benefits available. You may be provided some kind of financial assistance with things like down payments and closing costs. Simply ask your real estate agent or mortgage lender for details on programs available to you.
The more you know, the easier it’ll be to manage the expenses associated with buying and owning a home.
