I would like information on the HomePath mortgage.

Asked by Lisa, Maryland Tue Jan 4, 2011

I've been told that this is conventional financing. It would actually be a HomePath Renovation mortgage with approx. $4-$5K in repairs. Do the repair costs get rolled into the loan? Also, can you roll some or all of your closing costs into these loans? Does anyone know what the approx. rates are for this type of financing at this time? Thanks for your assistance.

You can ask for up to 6% towards closing costs. The repair costs become part of the loan. You have the offer price, and the repaired Future Appraisal value. The loan will be based on the future value. Flagstar Bank does HomePath Renovation loans.

Hi Dawn. The simplest answer to your first 2 questions is, Yes. However, you'll need to speak to a local lender/LO who offer HomePath for terms and conditions specific to your lender and area.

For a very very thorough answer to your question I recommend an answer that was posed to a similar question by another Trulia member, Andrew Martinez.

Hi Dawn,
The website provided by Laura is a great start. I would add that talking to a local loan officer is a must. Wells Fargo is one of the bigger HomePath lenders and I recommend you call one of my preferred lenders, Gene Drubetskoy at 410 322 0184, to get more details about it. He is with Wells Fargo and is a great resource for many of my clients.

If I can be of further assistance, do not hesitate to call or email. 443-660-8032.

Hello Dawn,
For more information on Homepath loans go to: http://www.homepath.com/
Also, your mortgage lender should be able to best answer your specific questions. Ask, as they will be happy to explain what this type of loan entails. I do know that it is a Fannie Mae loan that requires as little as 3% down.
I hope this helps.
Good luck!
