First-Time Homebuyers

Buying your first home is a big step. The federal and state governments offer a variety of programs that can make taking that step easier for many would-be homeowners. These include government-insured mortgages, such as Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and Veterans Administration (VA) loans, and state-sponsored bond programs. To qualify for these loans, borrowers must fall within certain annual income limits. In addition, the Federal National Mortgage Association (FNMA, or Fannie Mae) offers start-up loans with low down-payment requirements.

A good first step for any first-time homebuyer is to talk with a professional mortgage consultant to see what options are available and what you can afford.

What Our Customers Say

Todd Beal provided excellent advice and secured us a very competitive mortgage. This was all the more difficult given the fact that we relocated from Europe with no Social Security number or US credit history. Todd is an extremely pleasant, competent, and energetic senior mortgage professional who “simply   made it happen” despite these obstacles. We experienced super-responsive professional service, real human engagement, and valuable advice.
