Fannie Mae Expands Access to Credit for First Time Buyers


Fannie Mae has reinvigorated its commitment to responsibly help lenders extend affordable mortgage financing to qualified homebuyers. We offer an industry-leading combination of mortgage products, tools, and informative resources to grow sound business opportunities for lenders and sustainable homeownership opportunities for consumers.

Our priority
A safe, responsible balance between expanded access to mortgage financing and the long-term viability of today’s mortgage loans—limiting risk to lenders, investors, homeowners, and taxpayers.

Our goal
Straightforward work process with lenders to make mortgages more accessible, affordable, and sustainable.

Accessibility: Helping creditworthy homebuyers qualify for a mortgage
Fannie Mae works to support lenders as they serve qualified homebuyers who may have difficulty getting approved for a home loan in today’s market. We offer the mortgage products, underwriting guidelines, and lender tools that help limit risk and increase confidence as lenders make approval decisions. We support homebuyers with resources to help them navigate the mortgage process.

Affordability: Limiting the up-front and monthly costs of mortgages
Fannie Mae has established product flexibilities allowing lower down payments and competitive monthly costs—addressing key financial barriers for many homebuyers. Low down payments are supported by other common-sense requirements, including income verification, debt-to-income maximums, a good credit history, and in many cases pre-purchase counseling.

Sustainability: Supporting the long-term success of homebuyers
Fannie Mae wants a homebuyer's mortgage to be affordable on the day they buy their home and for the life of their loan. This is a key requirement for today’s affordable lending, achieved by verifying a homebuyer’s financial readiness, and offering products that fit their financial needs. Combined with tools that help lenders manage risk, Fannie Mae and the industry are able to serve a dynamic housing market.

Rebuilding After a Bankruptcy; This Buyer Found Home on HomePath.com


For a homeowner trying to get back on her feet after a bankruptcy, homeownership may seem like an unattainable milestone, but this homebuyer made it happen with a sound plan and with a search that began on HomePath.com.

Dusting Off
Terri Fraser, based in Northern Florida “lost everything” in 2008 and declared bankruptcy to regain her financial footing. Fraser eventually found a new job, and focused on rebuilding her credit in hopes of purchasing her first home. She knew she’d have to wait a few years before she could qualify for a Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac-backed loan. During that time she made sure to pay her bills on time and start saving toward her down payment. When she felt she was finally ready to make a purchase, her savings was nicely bolstered by a year-end bonus from her employer.

The Search for a Home
Now ready to begin the search, Fraser used the internet to investigated potential properties, and visited the homes that piqued her interest, including many Fannie Mae-owned properties found on HomePath.com. Homepath.com featured a wide selection of homes in neighborhoods across the country - from single-family homes to condominiums and town houses. Many were move-in ready while some needed light or more extensive renovations.

Moving In and Moving Up.
In just a few weeks, Fraser found the right home for her needs, a townhome in Jacksonville that was freshly painted and "move in" ready. She didn’t waste any time: "I put the offer in on a Friday and was accepted on Tuesday," she says, "it was really a simple and fast process." The townhome is a quick drive from work and is in a "great neighborhood," she reports. Once the deal closed, Fraser and her dog took up immediate residence. Fraser says she’ll definitely use HomePath.com if/when looking to move again. "It’s been a great experience….I’d definitely buy another Fannie Mae home."
