HomePath Financing . . Possibly A Great Alternative To FHA


HomePath is a special designation given by Fannie Mae to properties in their portfolio that have been foreclosed on. Fannie Mae goal is to sell these properties in a timely manner in order to minimize the impact on the community. Houses labeled with a HomePath tag become eligible for special financing.

They must be Fannie Mae owned properties where the listing agent has identified the property as being eligible for HomePath Financing.
