Good news! On Monday 12/08/2014, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac announced measures that should help first time home buyers.

In an effort to continue to support the housing market and open it to first-time buyers, the down payment requirement will be changed for loans guaranteed by Freddie and Fannie; some first-time home buyers will see the requirement go from the current 5% to as low as 3% down!

Among the qualifying conditions: at least one of the borrowers has not owned a primary residence in the last 3 years.

The changes will take effect on 12/13/14 for Fannie Mae and on 03/23/15 for Freddie Mac.
