Overland Park KS Homes for sale & Johnson County Real Estate Blog: August 2008

Last chance for Down Payment assistance is this week!

***** For Immediate release******

According to my lender at Wells Fargo, FHA made a surprise announcement today. All loans using Seller funded Down Payment Assistance must be sent to underwriting by August 29th and all loans must be signed, closed and funded on or before September 30th.

I have not seen an official statement from HUD/FHA on this yet but I don't want to see anyone needing this program to purchase a home get caught off guard.

If you have been dilly dallying around with the idea of buying a house, you better get off the fence, you have essentially 1 week to get pre-approved, find a house, get an offer accepted and submit it to underwriting.

This is very serious, if you miss out you will need 3.5% downpayment or no house.
