Cash Assist for Buyers of Fannie Mae Foreclosed Homes

Fannie Mae Foreclosed Homes for Sale

Cash at closing program is available for a limited time offer from Federal National Mortgage Association "Fannie Mae" on foreclosed homes. This program is for owner-occupied buyers only and is called First Look. This allows buyers to purchase a foreclosed home owned by Fannie Mae to get a 3.5% of sales price cash contribution paid to the seller at settlement towards the purchase of an owner-occupied home.

For example, a home costing $300,000 will grant the purchaser a $10,500 cash payment from Fannie Mae towards the purchase at closing.

A $500,000 home will give the buyer $21,875.

This credit is not paid directly to the buyer, but is paid at settlement toward purchase price.

Please note this program is NOT available to investors. The purchaser must agree the home will be their primary residence for a minimum period of one year. Buyers must fill out a Certification Form when bidding on a home agreeing to these terms. (Penalties for submitting a fraudulent occupant certification form will result in loss of earnest money deposit and a $10,000 penality.)


"First Look" Program for Owner-Occupied Buyers

Owner-occupied buyers get a "first look" at Fannie Mae foreclosed homes for sale when they initially hit the market. There is a 20-day window of time when only potential owner-occupied buyers can bid on these homes (some states have a longer First Look program). Once this period of time has elapsed, the home can be purchased by any buyer, including investors. However, the cash incentive program is no longer available to other buyers. Buyers will need to quality for the mortgage loan and get prequalified for morgage financing up to a specic dollar limit at current interest rates. The mortgage lender will then likely factor in the 3.5% closing cost incentive in calculating your mortgage application.

Be aware that you are buying these homes in "as is" condition, meaning no repairs will be provided by Fannie Mae. Homes are in various conditions as they were previously owned. The prices reflect the conditions of the homes and some have been "improved" as evidenced by the Home Depot symbol, or "repaired" by an independent contractor as signified by the hammer symbol next to the pictures on

  • initial offer to purchase before March 31,2014 and must
