Is there down payment help for first time home buyers who just graduated from school?

Recent law grad. I do have job offers, but not a lot saved. What are my options with 716 FICO and 16k in savings? That's not just for down payment it's for any fees I might have by fcayson78463368 from Arlington, Virginia. Dec 15th 2014 Reply

You do have some options but you would need to start employment first. There is a 3% down options, depending on the salary of the new job there is even a 0 down loan option.I'd be happy to discuss this with you.

There are programs available that you may qualify for, which require as little as 3% down. I would suggest starting work, as lenders will require proof of income in order for you to qualify.

You can put as little as 3% down, and ask the seller to pay your closing costs.

There are many programs to help provide funds for first time home buyers. All of them are going to require an employment history, so obtaining the first job is paramount. Work with a local Mortgage Banker/Broker rather than one of the big banks or big national mortgage factories. Unlike a bank employee, who is most likely just an order taker, a Mortgage Broker/Banker is Trained, Tested and Licensed in all aspects of Mortgage Origination. We have access to loan products of MANY lenders, not just those of ONE bank, and can properly guide you. But more importantly, we are trained to take a look at the various different options available to you and guide you into the one that makes the best sense for your situation.
