Learn how the First Time Home Buyer Program Works

by Darrick Ethien
If you are a veteran living in Texas, you should know that there’s a thing by the name of a first time home buyer program that is meant for loan borrowers who would be buying a house for the first time.

Below you will learn how the Texas first time home buyer program works:

As a first time buyer, you are bound to experience butterflies in your stomach. You would first like to meet an experienced real estate agent, then search for the right kind of home for yourself, then try to apply and get approval for a mortgage loan. There are many aspects that need to be taken into consideration. You will have to look for a home that really suits your budget and see whether you will able to arrange funds for the down payment and closing costs. These two are the largest expenses for first time home buyers in Texas.

Becoming a homeowner becomes easy
With the first time home buyer program, home ownership becomes far more easily accessible for anyone who is looking to buy a house in Texas for the first time. This is largely because of the kind of financial assistance that is offered to borrowers. The other name of this program is the Bond Program 77 and it is comprised of loans with the right kind of interest rates and a repayable second lien loan with a time period of 30 years that is meant for down payment and closing costs.

What borrowers need to understand is that on opting for this program, they will be offered financial assistance via the sale of mortgage revenue bonds that will be tax-exempt. Eligibility in the case of the first time home buyer program shouldn't really be an issue. The property that you wish to buy must be situated within Texas. A prospective buyer should not have owned a house in the last three years.

Go for expert assistance
After doing some online research and finding yourself an expert to work with, you will work towards being pre-qualified so that you get to know the approximate value of the property that you will actually be able to purchase. You will really value the expert assistance that you are offered as somebody will be there to help you out when you have to arrange all the paperwork and when you bring the entire process to its conclusion. It’s also possible that your expert may help you in lowering the closing costs that those seeking mortgage loans for the first time are required to pay. You will also be told about the kind of home you can buy.
