Hi '4ofusjs'

Give me a call to discuss or feel free to email with any questions. I've sold several homes to first time Buyers through HPAP and I also bought my current home years ago through HPAP!

It is a VERY 'inspection heavy' program and there are several hoops and bonds you might go through, but overall considering the highly beneficial loan and the fact that you come through the fire an informed Buyer, the ordeal is so worth it!

I know exactly what to look for in a house and how to handle a Seller's agent going through the HPAP process. And not only is it critical for the Buyer to have an experienced Agent when dealing with HPAP, it also really helps to have a knowlegdeable Lender. If you haven't nailed down that aspect of your purchase yet I would be happy to give you the contact information for theLender I highly recommend for all of my Buyers that are also using HPAP, EPAP etc. Knowing the folks at the GWUL and exactly who to go to for what can make a huge difference and seriously expedite your entire transaction. With the help of my recommended Lender, the cooperation of the Sellers' agent (and Seller), I have closed HPAP transactions in 30 DAYS.

I could go on and on ..let's talk soon!

I went through HPAP, too; It's a great program. It's crucial to find an agent who is experienced in how the program works, you also have to do some legwork. Make a list of your "must-haves" (neighborhood, number of bed/bathrooms, carpet or hardwood, etc) and check out trulia or franklymls to see what kinds of properties you can realistically expect to find in your price range. Knowing exactly what you want and where you'd like to live will make it easier for your agent to target their search.

As far as the HPAP inspection, it is stringent; make sure you hire a thorough inspector who understands HPAP requirements for your buyer's inspection. My inspector failed my condo 4 times because he knew what HPAP looks for, so my unit was able to easily pass the HPAP inspection. Again, an agent with HPAP experience will know what types of things to look for and can tell you when you're viewing a property whether or not it is likely to pass HPAP.

Hello! I would be delighted to work with you on finding your dream home and may already have a home listed that may suit your lifestyle. Tell me more about your desired location,specific home features,move-in date,etc.

I'm ready to work with you on the sale! Realtors have the option to email property listings to buyers to review before scheduling an appointment to actually preview. This process makes the home buying process less taxing and easier for buyers.

Let me know if you would like to discuss in more details or need a breakdown on the financial investment. Look forward hearing from you when the time is right!
