Be sure to check into obtaining government assistance if you are considering buying a home. Do some research on the Internet and find out all you can about government programs that might be available. There should be government-subsidized loans available for new homebuyers, as well as HUD and FHA homes available for low-income families. Unless the laws have changed, FHA homes are generally in small towns and not available in metropolitan areas. Check some resources listed on this website such as Consumer Education Resources, Divorce Source, and Divorce Support. These three sites might have some information or links to assist in your search. If you can find a good real estate agent who will work with you in finding a home, that should be your best bet as they should know more about what is available in helping clients purchase homes.
