Going to this year's REALTORS® Expo? Visit Freddie Mac Booth #1285 and let us show you the 3 ways we're helping clear the path to homeownership for your clients
3 Reasons to Visit Us at the REALTORS® Expo
Are you looking for a clear path to homeownership for your clients? Freddie Mac is working hard to do just that – and we want to show you how. Tony Hutchinson – Freddie Mac's primary liaison to the real estate trades – explains why you should attend this year's REALTORS® Conference & Expo, in Orlando, and add Expo Booth #1285 to your event planner.
#1 – Learn more to earn more
If you want to earn more – you've got to learn more. And how do you learn more? By taking a tour of our online Real Estate Professionals Resource Center right at our booth. You'll find meaningful support – especially for your first-time homebuying clients – including informative handouts and online consumer information on the MyHome by Freddie Mac® website and the CreditSmart® financial education curriculum (available in English and Spanish).
"The Resource Center gives you access to Freddie Mac's industry expertise, including housing policy changes coming down the pipeline, housing economics and tools to increase your brand, referrals and transactions," Hutchinson explains.
#2 – Overcome down payment barriers
Overcome down payment barriers with our low down payment mortgages – as low as 3 percent. Learn firsthand about our flexible down payment funding sources (including gifts and grants) and credit terms. Find out if your clients qualify for our low down payment products.
Hutchinson reports that Freddie Mac's low down payment products are more streamlined than other low down payment options, and they include features designed to reduce costs to the consumer. "Expo visitors can take information about these mortgages with them as they visit lenders' booths to ensure that these products are available to their customers," he says.
#3 – Gain closing day confidence
Gain closing day confidence with our Loan Product Advisor®. Check out this next-generation, automated underwriting tool. Freddie Mac Loan Product Advisor helps guard against any surprises at the closing table.
"Ask your lender partners if they are using Freddie Mac Loan Product Advisor," recommends Hutchinson.
"Real estate professionals like you play a critical and indispensable role in the housing ecosystem," Hutchinson states. "And Freddie Mac has placed a high priority on facilitating the growth and vitality of this ecosystem, especially In the affordable marketplace."
