First time home buyer in san antonio texas?

I just moved to the area and see many homes for sale that would give a low monthly payment (I just moved from FL where renting a home is like $2k a month!) but I don't know anything about home buying.

I want to know once I find employment if it would be wise for me to even attempt getting my own home; I have decent credit FICO score 663 and climbing, but no real down payment money.

It could be a mobile/manufactured home or it could be a real 'home' home, doesn't matter; I just see that rent and mortages are around the same and figure why rent when I can buy???

Any advice on realtors/lending companies that will work with me?? Or why it is or is not worth it to even attempt this move...? All advice is appreciated!!
