It’s a great time to be a first time homebuyer - if you have decent credit and some money saved for a down payment. HOWEVER, there are still grants and assistance programs available for buyers who need some help with covering closing costs and/or coming up with the money needed to put down on a loan. I will discuss these options more in another (soon to be published - just putting the finishing touches on it) post.
