How does the Albuquerque first time home buyer program work?
For most first time buyers, saving a down payment of 20, 10 or even five percent can seem like an overwhelming obstacle. This is especially true for younger prospective home owners. That said, purchasing a home now is a fantastic investment for the future and an option that should be available to anyone pursuing it.
The New Mexico first time home buyers program makes it “cheaper to buy than to rent a home” for many first time home buyers looking at homes for sale in Albuquerque. It gives them buying power by granting them the funds necessary to cover a down payment and closing costs. Buyers just need to put up as little as $500 of their own funds and have a credit score of 620.
Who qualifies for the Albuquerque first time home buyers program?
In terms of real estate, people who have not owned a home in the past three years may qualify for Albuquerque first time home buyer status. If you feel that you qualify to receive the benefits of the Albuquerque first time home buyers $500 move in program, feel free to contact us at 505-401-7500 to learn more.
What homes qualify for the Albuquerque first time home buyers program?
Most homes in Rio Rancho and throughout Albuquerque and the surrounding areas are available for first time home buyers to move in with as little as $500 down. To obtain the FIRSTHome grant through MFA, buyers must purchase a single-family home—multifamily residences and commercial properties do not qualify. New homes, as well as repossessed or previously owned homes, will qualify for this program.
How do I qualify for the Albuquerque first time home buyers program?
First, you need to meet the qualifications. We work with an approved mortgage lender. They’ll review your monthly income, expenses, employment history and credit report. Then, determine your eligibility for the program. The lender will also decide how much down payment and closing cost assistance you need. From there, they’ll recommend the best New Mexico Mortgage Finance Authority (MFA) program for you.
