The best advice I can give you is to contact a LOCAL mortgage broker and apply with them. Dealing with someone local, they should be on top of any Down Payment Assistance programs, if any, and once they see your complete loan profile, they will be better equipped to advise you properly. Also, by applying with your LOCAL Broker, you have an advantage because he's familiar with local customs and works with many lenders with each one offering a different type of lending program. This is unlike the local bank which typically only has a few lending programs. The more lenders, the more lending options, and the more likely your scenario will be accepted.. Plus, the broker is experienced in seeking out the best loan terms for your particular scenario, and he has lower overhead which typically results in lower rates and fees than most of the larger lenders.. I'm a Broker here in Scottsdale AZ and I only lend in Arizona. If you or someone you know is looking for financing options, feel free to contact me or pass along my information. William J.

Hi Josh, you can find some additional information on first time home buyer programs through I would also suggest speaking with a local loan officer or two, find someone you like, get pre-approved so you know exactly what you can qualify for. Best wishes, Sean
