Are there any grants for new home buyers in repect to down payments?

Response
There are down payment assistance grant programs available on the local, state, and federal levels but please be aware that typically these grant programs are exhausted quickly so keep your chin up and keep trying if at first you don't succeed.  Good luck!

What if you have bad credit but never bought a home before. Could you still qualify for 1st time buy

Answer
The good news is that there are tons of programs available to first time homebuyers on the local, state, and national levels.  Definitely worth your time to investigate these programs.  The other half of the coin is that no one is doing subprime lending any more.  You need to have at least a 630/640 credit score to be approved for a mortgage loan.  My suggestion is that you contact a mortgage lender with a solid reputation in your area and allow them the opportunity to help you navigate down the road to home ownership.  Even if you don't have the credit you need to qualify today, they can help you work towards that goal.  Good luck!

How low will they go???

Response
Dee Cain is right.  Most sellers today are fairly motivated to sell their property and move on with their lives.  You should never pay more for a property than what you feel it is really worth.  Best of luck!
