First Time Buyers

Buying and owning your own home is considered the American dream. Since it is also a major investment, it is important to approach it with as much information as possible. There are many questions to consider when buying your first home:

  • How do I get started?
  • How much can I afford?
  • Where should I look for a home?
  • Where are workforce developments in my area?
  • Am I eligible for any subsidies?
  • Where should I get my mortgage?
  • Fortunately, there are many easily accessible resources to assist first time homebuyers.

You will find links throughout our website to additional resources that can help you navigate the home buying process.
