Yes most banker who has access to all the various programs can help you understand your options.


Start the process right 1st by talking to a Licensed Mortgage Professional to determine who much home you can afford and whether you are credit wordy and is there an ability to repay the loan.

The Mortgage Professional will give you a conditional approval letter to take to the realtor.

Once the realtor has found your home you should get it inspected to determine if it’s structurally safe (have the realtor recommend one locally) and be sure to ask your realtor to negotiate a home warranty paid by the seller.

Now is the time to determine and negotiate you rate and terms with the Loan Officer who is responsible to order an appraisal that you will be responsible to pay for prior to the arrival of the appraiser.

You’re Mortgage Professional / Loan Officer will be responsible to guide you the rest of the process and should not take more than 30 days.

Lucille - Fannie Mae programs in most cases will absolutely help you to buy a home. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac prior to 2008 had "backed" most mortgages in the USA. Due to the high default rate, most new mortgages now are backed by the "FHA". In most cases, a first time homebuyer will not be able to secure a mortgage if it is not backed by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac or FHA. But as I mentioned earlier the high default rates now has the FHA in the forefront of being the government guarantor for these loans.

Fannie Mae also, operates a website at which promote the sale of their foreclosed properties. Within that site is another program called "First Look" which has favorable terms for first time homebuyers.

Actually you may be talking about FHA which allows for more financing at good rates.
