First Time Homebuyers Have a New Reason to Rejoice

Posted on September 1, 2011. Filed under: First Time Buyer help, Making Life Easier, Orange County Real Estate | Tags: , , |

As if there weren’t a bonanza of incentives already available to first time homebuyers, newbies have yet another excellent reason to purchase a house. Called Homepath, this very generous program currently enables Fannie Mae to offer buyers up to 3.5% in closing cost assistance through October 31, 2011.  In addition, a $1,200 selling agent bonus is available to agents who close on an owner occupant property and meet all eligibility requirements and terms and conditions. 

Remember, Homepath is available only for Fannie Mae properties and to first time buyers. If you and your chosen property qualify, the program offers you a fantastic way to get some amazing benefits. Possibilities include getting your closing costs paid or changing a prohibitively costly condo into an affordable dream home.

If you’re interested in Homepath, here are some of the conditions you should be aware of.

  • Buyers and/or selling agents (the agent representing the buyer) must request the incentive upon submission of initial offer.
  • Initial offer must be submitted on or after June 14, 2011 and close by October 31, 2011. Initial offers made prior to June 14 are not eligible for the June 14 – October 31 incentive.
  • Sale must close on or before October 31, 2011. No exceptions will be made to this deadline. (Note: Initial offers submitted after September 15, 2011 may not close by the incentive deadline of October 31, 2011.)

If you’d like to learn more about Homepath, I’ll be delighted to help. Just call, tweet, or email me at 949.338.7408,   @AngieWeeks, @WeeksTeam, or  I’m ready to assist you in any way I can.
