Keeping Current Matters is a nice Resource for first time or experienced buyers.  The tip for saving a down payment amount is a great tip.  Have a separate account set up where money goes each paycheck.  The trick is not to handle the money but allow the money to slide directly into that account and grow.  You will be amazed how much will be accumulated without pain when you take on this strategic plan to save for a down payment.

You should also begin to think and prioritize where your money goes if you don't already do that intentionally.  The zero based budgeting system that is taught by Dave Ramsey makes sense.  He intentionally wants you to assign a name to every single dollar you work so hard for - that way you are controlling your future!
