What is the Pathway to

Homeownership Initiative?


The Pathway to Homeownership offers qualified borrowers in select areas up to $8,000 in assistance. These funds are not a loan that needs to be repaid and are available to first-time homebuyers in designated areas.

NAF Cash Can Turn You into a Cash Buyer

Buying in cash means convenience, certainty, and may mean cost savings too. In fact, buying in cash may help you save up to 11% over those using a traditional mortgage.* With NAF Cash, you can make a competitive, true cash offer that is not contingent on financing and close in little as seven days without having to sell your current home first.

*According to a study from researchers at the University of California - San Diego, cash buyers have paid about 11% less than using a mortgage.

"I have had several mortgages in my life and the process of working with Chris and his team was easily the best experience I've ever had obtaining a loan. I almost feel guilty the amount of after-hours time that was spent on my project. Thank you to Chris and his whole team for closing a NAF Cash deal in only ONE WEEK and for making the entire remainder of the process easy. Chris made sure that I always felt welcome to reach out with questions any day or hour."
