“Late last week, Freddie Mac announced it would be extending its appraisal-free mortgage program to purchase loans starting September 1, 2017. Fannie Mae’s announcement quickly followed, offering its product effective immediately.”
Waiting for a full appraisal definitely slows the loan process down. But thanks to these new developments, we can close certain purchase loans in 7 days!
Criteria include that the property is owner-occupied and single family residence, and that the loan be less than 80% loan to value (LTV).
A fast closing is definitely an advantage when putting in an offer. Contact one our Loan Officers to see if you would qualify for such a lightening fast purchase loan.
