SALEM OREGON REAL ESTATE NEWS-NEW LAW TAKES EFFECT AIMED AT HELPING HOMEOWNERS FACING FORECLOSURE.

Oregon homeowners facing foreclosure have new rights thanks to a new Oregon law-Senate Bill 628.  This law now requires lenders to meet with borrowers, either in person or by phone, to determine whether or not they qualify for a loan modification.  A loan modification could lower house payments and allow homebuyers to remain in their home.

Oregon RealEstateRama has the complete article along with tips for homeowners to follow once they have received their Notice of Foreclosure.

If you know someone who is struggling to make their mortgage payment, please forward this article to them.

Downpayment Assistance for First Time Homebuyers available July 1st.

Thursday, June 25th, 2009

Great news for the Salem/Keizer Oregon real estate market. The City of Salem will once again re-open their program for downpayment assistance for first time homebuyers that are buying in the Salem/Keizer area. New funds will become available the first of July. This is a great program for buyers who can afford to make a monthly mortgage payment, but do not have the available funds for the 3.5% downpayment that FHA now requires. There are certain requirements that buyers must meet to obtain the downpayment assistance.

The first step to starting this process is to find a mortgage broker/lender that has your best interests at heart. You will need a trusted advisor skilled in working with the City of Salem program. I work with several trusted professionals that would be happy to assist you in your quest to buy a home using this downpayment assistance. I would be happy to refer you to my trusted partners. You can call me direct at 503-931-1846, or email me at MelWagnerBroker@msn.com for the names and numbers of these professionals.
