This question already has an answer here:
I've got about 5k in a Roth IRA that I rolled over from a Roth 401k about 6 months ago. I would like to use it and/or continue to build it up and eventually use it for a 1st time home purchase.
Are there rules that govern how long the money has to sit in the Roth IRA before I can use it for a home purchase? Also, can I take the entire amount, or does some still need to be left in the IRA?
