You really should consider giving Judy Pham a call.
She has suggested there is much you do not know.
You really, really need to know what you do not know
before you get into a box that has no escape.

It is a simple process, but you really would be well advised to get a guide.

There are no appraisal fees with a Homepath as Fannie Mae who will securitize the loan, is also the seller.

The process of purchasing a homepath home is the same process to purchase any other home. The only difference is that instead of just signing the 10 page purchase contract, for homepath properties you will also have to sign their 13 page bank addendum as well. For homepath properties, for the first 15 days they will only review offers from owner occupants. If you are an investor and if the home is still available then they will review your offer after the 15 day first look period is up.

You could go to and if it says "firstlook" then they will only review offers from owner occupants. If you click on the property then it will show you how many days are left before they could review offers from investors. I just closed a deal on a homepath property and just received a verbal acceptance for another homepath property. If you have any further questions then please feel free to contact me directly.

The process of buying a HomePath property is not much different than buying any other property. Taj did a great job of laying out the steps. Throw in having your buyer inspections completed and you're ready to make it happen.

Good luck!

Hi Dgraviano,
The first part of the process is to call a lender (if your using a loan ) and obtain a pre-approval letter.

Shop for the home
Put in an offer
Obtain acceptance of your offer
Open escrow
Make escrow deposit
Provide your lender all requested documents
Provide title all requested documents
Sign lender docs
Obtain lender funding In escrow
Place remainder of funds for closing in escrow
Close escrow
Get keys

If you are referring to homepath "financing " the process above is the same.
