City grants and County Government Grants for Home Buyers:
Many counties and cities have "own in (your city)" home buyer grant money programs. This government grant money is available to you from $2,000 to $20,000. Use this home buying grant to pay for a down payment and / or closing costs.
Most home buyer grants require that you have not owned a home in the last 3 years, although there are a few that don't have this requirement. All home buying grants are income based. This means that if you make too much money then you will not qualify. How much that income is depends on the area you are moving to and how many people are in the home. Call me for details.
