As if you needed another reason to bring your dreams of home ownership to light, there are so many programs out there for 2015 first time home buyers!  Between sky rocketing rental rates, possible tax breaks for owning a home, and gaining equity in your home each month; the values of home ownership are really attractive.   Talk to your mortgage lender today about the programs available through Fannie Mae and new 2015 FHA guidelines to see what you will qualify for.  

Starting Tuesday April 14th, mortgage giant Fannie Mae announces that they are offering first time home buyers up to 3% of the purchase price in assistance with closing costs on their eligible HomePath Buyer Ready Program properties.

  • Must be a first-time home buyer (who has not owned a property in the past three years) and who has plans to reside in the property as the primary residence. Auction, pool and investor sales are not eligible.

  • Make their request for closing cost assistance at the initial offer, submitted on or after April 14, 2015.
