greenville: Greenville, NC Real Estate Market Trends for November 2014 - 12/18/14 11:24 PM
Posted by Liz Freeman 
In an effort to open up lending to more low-income and first time home buyers—and, we suspect, to spread seasonal goodwill-- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac has announced they will start backing mortgages with down payments of as little as 3% of the home's price.  Both programs are for fixed-rate loans given to first time homebuyers and those seeking to refinance. Fannie began backing the loans on December 13, while Freddie will start offering them March 23, 2015.

Who can apply?  Fannie Mae will allow new purchasers and borrowers who haven’t owned a primary residence within the last three years to qualify. Freddie Mac’s program will be … (1 comments)

greenville: Greenville NC Real Estate Market Trends - March 2010 - 04/27/10 01:12 AM
Pending home sales rose sharply in February, potentially signaling a second surge of home sales in response to the home buyer tax credit, according to the National Association of Realtors®.

If you're thinking of selling your Greenville home, and you expect that the total amount you owe on your mortgage will be greater than the selling price of your home, you may be facing a short sale. A short sale is one where the net proceeds from the sale won't cover your total mortgage obligation and closing costs, and you don't have other sources of money to cover the deficiency. A short sale is different from a foreclosure, which is when your lender takes title of your home through a lengthy legal process and then sells it. 
1. Consider loan modification … (0 comments)
