One of the biggest things stopping people from participating in the American Dream today is the ability to come up with the down payment. While talk of a credit crunch keeps some buyers sidelined because of credit problems, many others with good credit are able to get the best deals in years including programs with no down payment!
The program leading the way in no down payment requirements (for non veterans) is the USDA Rural Development loan. This loan is available right now for Dallas and Independence, and who better to show you homes in these communities than Cecily Parks with Windermere Park West Properties in Salem.
To qualify for the program (it is income limited), a family of four cannot have a total household income of more than $70,750 per year. That is a pretty liberal guideline. After Jan. 1, a family of 1-4 qualifies with the same income. Larger families have much higher income limits.

So - THE TIME IS RIGHT! We have many properties on the market, we have MONEY TO LEND, and the Federal Government is giving First Time Homebuyers a $7500 tax credit if they purchase prior to next summer!
Call me for more information on USDA loans, and to see if your household income qualifies for this NO PMI loan. If you want to get the mortgage qualification process started, either call me at 541-342-7576 or fill out an application on line.
