Image titleFannie Mae has recently announced new policies aiming to help borrowers with student loan debt better qualify for a mortgage, and realize the second part of their American Dream.

Vice President of  customer solutions Jonathan Lawless said:

“We understand the significant role that a monthly student loan payment plays ... and we want to be a part of the solution. These new policies provide three flexible payment solutions to future and current homeowners and, in turn, allow lenders to serve more borrowers.”
The new policies include:
Student Loan Cash Out Refinance
 – This option provides the homeowner with extra cash, affording them the opportunity to pay off student debt while refinancing to a lower mortgage interest rate.
Debt Paid by Others 
– This option increases a borrower’s eligibility by eliminating non-mortgage debt (e.g., credit cards, auto loan, student loan) that is paid by someone other than the borrower.
Student Debt Payment Calculation 
– This option allows a lender to view and consider student loan payment information on credit reports - it makes borrowers with student loan debt more likely to qualify for a loan because their situation can be analyzed in its entirety.
Call me for a referral to a lender who can help you navigate the new policies and determine if there is help for your home ownership dream.
