silver springs nevada: Remember VA Loans Assumable to Investors & Non-Veterans - 05/30/09 08:37 AM
VA loans made after March 1, 1988 require the buyer assuming the loan to qualify.  Owner-occupants or owner-investors can assume these loans, if qualified.  They need not occupy or be veterans.  The veteran is then no longer responsible.

If a veteran assumes another VA loan, he … (1 comments)

silver springs nevada: Buyers Can Tap Tax Credit For Down Payment - 05/13/09 03:13 PM
Secretary of Housing, Shaun Donovan reported on Tuesday that the Federal Housing Administration is working on a policy that will allow FHA approved lenders, HUD approved nonprofits and state and local housing finance agencies to "monetize" the tax credit through short-term bridge loans.

silver springs nevada: Stimulus For First-Time Homebuyer Tax Credit Changes - 02/17/09 02:49 AM
The Stimulus Bill has made some major modifications to the original proposed homebuyer tax credit, see below.  The major changes are in italics.
Home prices in Fernley, Fallon and Silver Springs are very affordable and in some cases the cost of monthly homeownership would be less than a monthly rent payment.
If you are considering an investment in a home, look at the tax credit as additional assistance.

Please consult a tax professional for advice.
