Down Payment Assistance Programs

Real Estate Broker/Owner with HomeBuyer Brokerage

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac offer down payment assistance programs for home buyers.


With higher interest rates than a year ago and home prices slowly dropping, home buyers are facing obstacles to home ownership.

At HomeBuyer Brokerage, we want home buyers to have a full understanding of their options. 

On this podcast of Listen Up Home Buyers! A Maryland lender explains two programs; 

Freddie Mac Borrow Smart Program linked to Home Possible and the new Fannie Mae Purchase Plus program – Both are Down Payment Assistance Programs.

In the past ( late 1990’s to 2007) we had several Seller Funded/ Gifted Buyer Down Payment Programs . I think one of them was called the Nehemiah Program
