New Mortgage Qualifying Guidelines - Just Announced

Fannie Mae announced that it will make an enhanced affordable lending product available to lenders sometime later this year.  The new program, called the HomeReady™ Mortgage, will offer expanded eligibility guidelines that will be real game changer for a lot of people who could not previously qualify for a mortgage.  

Finally, after years of research, Fannie Mae has recognized the many financial challenges many would-be homebuyers are facing.  Many can't afford a large down payment, they may have multiple student loans, and/or they may rely on income from non-traditional sources, such as parents or other family members.  These factors have impacted the ability of many people from qualifying for a mortgage.  Well, that may be about to change . . . perhaps for YOU!

Happy New Year!

Buying Real Estate - Humanism vs Tech

When it comes to buying a home, humanism trumps technology.

Yes, most buyers search for homes and buying advice on the internet.  The internet is a great place to get a feel for what kind of homes are available in a price range you can afford in the areas you want to live.  It is a convenient and effective way to begin your search.

However, when it comes to something as personal and life-changing as purchasing a home, people crave human connections and professional experience. Buying a home is a personal and emotional decision.  Buyers want to work with an experienced, trusted neighborhood expert that can give them the guidance they need.
