Ask your real estate agent or lender for information on the HELP program from the FHA.
As we show you in this video, HELP - Homebuyer Education Learning Program - is structured to help first time buyers begin the homebuying process.
It covers such topics as budgeting, finding a home, getting a loan, and home maintenance.
In most cases, completion of this program may entitle you to a reduction in the initial FHA mortgage insurance premium from 2.25% to 1.75% of the purchase price of your new home.
