In certain situations, yes. You can withdraw up to $10,000 to buy, build or rebuild a first home for yourself, your spouse, a child, grandchild or parent. If both you and your spouse are first-time home buyers, you may each qualify for up to $10,000 in withdrawals. You can search IRS publication 590 for more information. Good luck!
