If you’re thinking about buying your first house in NJ sometime soon, there are a few “First Time Homebuyer” programs that you might be eligible for through the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency.
For example the NJHMFA has a “Homeward Bound” first time homebuyer program that can help you get a “below market interest rate” that will save you $1000’s of dollars over the life of the loan.
You can also get this lower fixed rate in conjunction with the “Smart Start” Program that will let you get a “4% of purchase price forgivable loan” to help cover down payment and closing costs. And the best part is this loan is potentially “forgivable” if you stay in your house for 5 years, which essentially means you might be able to get your Down Payment and some closing costs paid for, for FREE.
