One student said “There are many great programs for first-time buyers in the area. I purchased a condo and paid it off during medical school. I now have a nice down payment on my next place. Condos cost as low as $60,000.”
Depending on your income, the Town of Amherst has a First Time Home Buyers Program that helps covers the closing cost and some of the down payment. Please see the information below:
Please note that closing in NYS can take up to 2 months so it is important to start looking now if you are going to buy!
