HomePath & HomeStyle are here!

Fannie Mae recently announced the addition of the HomePath Loan Program. HomePath is a program offered by Fannie Mae specifically designed to move REO (Real Estate Owned/Foreclosure) homes in Fannie’s portfolio. If you are in the market to purchase a home (primary, second, or investment) there are plenty of REO properties to choose from. Find HomePath eligible properties by visiting www.homepath.com.  You can combine HomePath with HomeStyle the Fannie Mae renovation Mortgage program. The HomeStyle Renovation mortgage program allows borrowers to combine the cost of the home with the costs for renovation or remodeling.

 Get pre-approved with us today so you can be better positioned to compete in this “buyers” market. Most Banks and Realtors will not work with you unless you are pre-approved.

Reminders:

  • California tax credit of up to $10,000 for a newly built home, and up to a $10,000 tax credit for first-time purchasers of existing homes in California. The credit will be available beginning May 1 and be good through Dec. 31, 2010, or when funding is exhausted, whichever comes first.
  • First Time HomeBuyer Credit:  $8000 tax credit expires on July 1st, 2010 (contract must be signed by 4/30/10).  The best part – if you have already filed your taxes, you can amend your 2009 tax return and get your $8,000 credit this year!
  • Move Up HomeBuyer Credit:  $6,500 tax credit for current homeowners purchasing another home – expires on July 1st, 2010 (contract must be signed by 4/30/10)

And don’t forget – if you can benefit from more flexible qualification and income guidelines, we continue to offer great FHA program options that require as little as 3.50% down on new home purchase loans!  If you currently have a FHA loan, there is a FHA streamline refinance option available to you.
