Most of us need one - but how do you know which loan is best for you? And are there programs available for first time homebuyers? or Down Payment assistance programs? or Grants? What if I'm a veteran? What if I've had a bankruptcy or a short sale/foreclosure? What if I just want to refinance?
These are just some of the questions you may be asking as you think about buying a new home!

Utah Housing Corporation
Utah Housing Corporation (UHC) was created in 1975 by Utah legislation to serve a public purpose in creating an adequate supply of money with which mortgage loans at reasonable interest rates could be made to help provide affordable housing for low and moderate income persons.
And if you are looking for some grant money to help get into your first home, here is some basic info:
