There has been some great news recently from both Fannie Mae
and Freddie Mac. With new programs available, first time home buyers will have
the opportunity to qualify for loans with down payments starting at 3%. Freddie
Mac’s Home Possible Advantage has a maximum loan-to-value ratio of 97 percent.
Participation in a program for borrower education will also be required in
order to be eligible. Fannie Mae’s program will have normal guidelines and will
require private mortgage insurance. This should open doors for many who cannot
afford a large lump sum down payment, and will make it easier for people to
move from renting into buying their own home. Without a 20% down payment
holding you back, there are endless opportunities. Give me a call and we can
discuss it further!

"Alex Argifoff understood what we were looking for. He spent years being patient and showing us around the
area. He knew the neighborhoods and would recommend areas we might want to see. Alex was not pushy,
but would give his opinion when asked. I will recommend him to friends.
Our purchase went smoothly. We had not bought a home in 30 years so a lot had changed. Alex guided us
through the process, explained and answered all quesions, and set up inspections needed.
We looked for over five years. Alex was always patient. He was friendly and easy to talk to. He knew we
wanted a house that felt like our home, and he worked with us until we found it. I have already
recommended him to a friend who is looking in the area.
