Congress trying to do away with Down Payment AssistanceThe house passed a bill today bailing out Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac but what wasn't highly publisized is that they are ending the use of Down Payment Assistance for FHA mortgages. I am sure that there are many of you who have used one of these programs to purchase your home. They go by names like Nehemia, NeighborHood Gold & Ameridream. This is the last way to purchase a home with no money down. If you are a buyer looking for a home and were directed to one of these programs you may lose your opportunity to purchase a home. Don't take this lying down. Go to this site and sign the petition to make sure your senators & Congressman/woman know where you stand. http://rallyforhomeownership.com/July 23 2008 - US11YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
