Home for Sale Family
Spring is a popular time to think about purchasing a home, and as a first-time homebuyer in Massachusetts, you may have questions about the process. Luckily, there are state and federal programs to help you through it, including assistance with down payments – being a low- to moderate-income household does not necessarily mean you can’t own the home of your dreams – seminars and more. The information below outlines some of the first steps on the road to homeownership:

  • Know your credit score
    • Having a good credit score makes buying a home easier and will often result in a lower mortgage rate.

For additional information on home buying and selling regardless of income or having previously owned a home, visit Mass.gov
