The first step for Oceanside first time home buyers is a consultation with a lender. It's important to work with a lender who is familiar with a number of different programs, including FHA and VA loans, which are commonly employed by Oceanside first time home buyers. Additionally, there is a home buyer assistance program in Oceanside. First time home buyers should ask their lender if it makes sense for them to apply to this program, as there can be some financial strings attached. No matter which type of loan you apply for, your lender should always focus the conversation around your monthly payment. With target monthly payment in mind, your lender can provide you with an purchase price you will feel comfortable with.
