Fannie Mae has a special offer for homes for sale on its Home Path List.  In addition to the first time home buyer credit (up to $8,000) which you may qualify to receive if you haven’t owned a home for that past 3 years, Fannie Mae is offering an additional 3.5% in closing cost assistance for anyone who purchases one of these homes of their Foreclosed homes.

This is a fantastice opportunity for they buyer who can find a home to meet their needs, and who will be willing to do a some work to the home once purchased.

    buyer beware. this program is a joke. i was cheated out of $2265.00 of the money offered because I opted for the appliances. they will not allow you to close until the appliances are delivered. I could not go back to modify my rate I was locked in. What a terrible program and system.

      I appreciate your comment. I am sorry to hear that you had a bad experience. Fannie Mae and other bank owned foreclosure properties are managed by companies that are very strict about the conditions of their agreements. Buyer’s need to find an experienced agent to represent them, one who will go over the terms of the agreement with them so that there will be no misunderstanding.

      Kris, Thanks for your comment. I am sorry to hear about your experience. The downside to buying foreclosure properties is that the companies that manage them have no flexibility.
