Financing a Foreclosure: Fannie Mae HomePath Program
With so many foreclosures on the market, I’ve come across homes owned by Fannie Mae that qualify for what is called the HomePath program. I had no clue what it was so I called my mortgage broker for information and checked their website.
Basically, HomePath financing offers the following…
Down payment of as little as 3%
No appraisal required
No mortgage insurance
Flexible mortgage terms
While this may be a good deal for some, my mortgage broker said to beware of the interest rates. There are lower “up-front” fees, however, you may pay a higher interest rate than with an FHA or conventional loan. Every situation varies based on income/credit scores. If you’re interested be sure to do you research!
Below is a link to their website for more information.
