A Compendium of Resources for First-Time Home Buyers

We recently compiled a list of resources for first-time home buyers, and came up with a nice list of information from the National Association of REALTORS®, REALTOR® Magazine online, Realtor.com, and HUD.

Field Guides from NAR

Find our full list of Field Guides here, as other guides may be helpful to first-time buyers, such as Credit Scoring, Flood Insurance, Lead-Based Paint, Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, or Land Investment. All field guides are accessible without a username and password, so anyone can take a look.
