Pathway to HomeOwnership

Are you Ready?

At New American Funding, we believe that every person deserves a clear path to achieving their dream of homeownership. So, we created the Pathway to Homeownership initiative to alleviate some of your financial worries.

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.

This program can also potentially be combined with other down payment assistance programs to offer you even more support as you build the life of your dreams.

NAF Cash Can Turn You into a Cash Buyer

Interact with our map to track cash
Purchase trends across the country

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.

Source: This dataset combines data from Public Records and MLS transactions. The data lists the number of all-cash purchases and the total number of home purchases nationwide including the most recent five quarters of data. (Cash purchase defined when a Property Sold record does not have a Mortgage Balance.) Data coverage is limited by available MLS coverage. Certain geographies like Georgia (especially Central GA), South Dakota and Vermont were impacted by this data availability. Land sales and manufactured (MFR) home sales are excluded from the dataset.

You're In Good Hands!

"For all the reasons you mentioned in the survey! I have worked with Bruce for many, many years before the company named changed. His work ethic is unparalleled, my clients love working with him. We have clients who have done multiple transactions with him, the title people love to work with him as well. After being active full time in the real estate industry, I have had my share of loan officers. There have been only 2 of whom have tipped the scales as 10\"s, and YES, BRUCE BUFE is one of them. I am loyal to those who can get their job done without me babysitting the file. Communication is certainly a top priority of mine. A loan officer who makes themselves available when needed for a buyer is crucial! We have to work when the buyers are ready, timing is everything. A knowledgeable loan officer with a variety of programs is also key. I Would also like to do a shout out to his team members. As We all know, things can get tricky sometimes. As successful professionals we know what it takes! Just ask us! LOL! Great working with my lending family, Thank you!"
