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.
Curious about this change?  Do you want to know if you qualify for this new low down payment? Contact your mortgage lender today or call or text me at 303-549-3431. You may also email me at [email protected] if you have questions or to find your new home today!
