So maybe you heard rumblings of something happening at RD. Well there certainly are changes being made. Some positive some not so great. First off lets talk about timing. RD is not out of money, for the last week of November they are not accepting application, but that’s not so bad, they anticipate being caught up on all the files Dec. 1St when they start accepting applications again. If we can go from 3+ week turn times to a couple days, well that’s fantastic! For UP TO DATE Turn Times follow this link.
Here is an outline of what affects real estate agents in regards to the guideline changes:
It should be noted that we are still waiting to see how all this unfolds but come Dec. St these changes will go into effect.
One of the biggest myths out there is that you need a bunch of money to buy a house. That’s simply not true. There are a number of No and Low down payment options for home buyers. On top of that you don’t have to be a first time home buyer to access many of those programs. During our next lunch and learn we will cover all the different options out there for buyers looking to minimize their down payment. Over the last couple years its been harder to get a lot of these types of offers accepted. However, with the market going back to a much more “normal” state it’s not nearly as hard as it was just a few short months ago. This is the perfect time for Realtors to reconnect with their past customers and get back out there looking. Come check out this lunch and learn and get a refresh course on low down payment options for buyers!
