While many first time homebuyers shop for conventional or jumbo loans, there are a couple of programs which can save you money on your first home loan if you qualify.
The FHA loan program from the Federal Housing Administration is perfect for first time homebuyers. Those who are eligible for an FHA-backed loan can put just 3.5-10% down on a home. Credit qualifications for FHA loans are more relaxed than they are for loans not insured by the government. Interest rates are more competitive as well.LEARN MORE

If you are eligible for this type of loan, you will not have to make any down payment on your first home. Your interest rates and terms will be friendly and affordable as well.LEARN MORE
