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
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
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.
