Play Video

On January 18th, 2024 CalHFA finalized the program guidelines for Round 2 of the Dream for All Shared Appreciation Loan. Applicants will need to complete a pre-registration application through the Dream for All CalHFA portal, once it is live. Currently the targeted launch date is in April 2024

As part of the pre-registration, applicants will need to upload a Pre-Approval Letter from a CalHFA approved lender. Qualified applicants will then be randomly selected to receive a voucher for the program, once the portal is closed

We provide an update on the pre-registration process, new program guidelines & eligibility, case studies and most importantly, how to get pre-approved.

Are you self-employed and having a hard time getting pre-approved for the purchase price you want because you have substantial tax write-offs and your tax return income is not enough for qualifying purposes?

Watch the video for the program details and case studies on how you can use the bank statement loan program to qualify for a home.

A bank statement program is a home loan program that uses deposits in bank statements to calculate income. This is an alternative documentation loan type that does not require tax returns, paystubs, or W2s. These loans are for self-employed borrowers who typically have substantial tax write-offs that make it challenging to demonstrate the necessary income to get pre-approved for the purchase price they are looking for. Bank statement loan programs use either personal or business bank statements to qualify borrowers.

Fannie Mae Update: 5% Down Payment 2-4 Unit
Play Video

New change from Fannie Mae for multi-family properties. Fannie Mae has announced that starting November 18th, 2023, they will accept 5% down payments on owner occupied 2-4 unit properties. This is a huge change from their previous policy which required 15-25% minimum down payment for 2-4 unit properties. With this change, they are hoping to expand access to credit and provide support for affordable rental housing. This new option presents a great opportunity for individuals looking to invest in multi-family homes while also enjoying the benefits of home ownership themselves.
