Don't have a lot of cash saved?

Not having thousands of dollars saved doesn't necessarily mean you can't buy a home.

If you can swing first, last and security deposit for a new lease, chances are your lender and agent can find a way for you to buy a home. From low-down payment loans, to grant programs, to financing your closing costs, there are a number of ways to buy without coughing up a lot of cash.
