First-Time Homebuyer Mortgage Options 

When you’re looking for a first-time buyer loan, you might think there are limited options. Truthfully, it depends on what you can afford, especially for the down payment. These loans tend to be easier for first-time homebuyers: 

  • FHA loans: Low down payments and minimal credit requirements
  • USDA loans: Up to 100% financing, depending on your region
  • VA loans: Special lending programs for qualified military and veteran borrowers
  • Rehab loans: Buy a fixer-upper and pay to improve it with the same loan
  • Conventional loans: Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac guidelines allow loans with 3% down payments, but the qualifications tend to be higher than FHA loans
  • HUD Good Neighbor Next Door loan program: Up to 50% discounts on qualified homes for teachers and first responders
  • State first-time homebuyer programs: Special discounts based on your location
  • Foreclosed homes: Discounted prices on properties sold by lenders

Not everyone qualifies for these programs. First-time lenders can help you determine which ones meet your financial needs.



First-Time Homeowners Loan Process

When applying for a mortgage, you need to know what to expect. Typically, you’ll fill out an application for pre-approval. Once the application is processed, you’ll know how much you can shop for in a home. Mortgage brokers are a great place to start because we can help you sort options and get the best rates and terms based on your application.

Superior Rate Mortgage of New England is licensed in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Connecticut. Once you’ve selected a loan and made a successful offer on a home, your lender handles the underwriting. If it’s clear, you’ll close on the loan and become a homeowner.
