Dumfries VA Military Family Gets A Treat For Halloween

By
Real Estate Agent with Integrity Real Estate Group

Southbridge Home SOLD

For a military family with PCS orders in a turbulent real estate market the options of what to do with an underwater home can be stressful.  For the family of this home in the Southbridge neighborhood of Dumfries VA they discovered they were eligible for the Department of Defense of Homeowners Assistance Program (DoD HAP.)

Today they went to closing and to make the sale even better was they buyer was also active duty military stationed at Fort Belvoir.  Since the DoD HAP program was funded in the fall of 2009 I've had the good fortunate to assist 33 Northern Virginia military families with the sale of their homes using DoD HAP benefits.  Each family had purchased their homes prior to July 1, 2006 and meet the other qualifications for the program including PCS orders prior to September 30, 2010.

The DoD HAP program has assisted thousands of military families across the country by providing benefits that cover the difference between the balance of their mortgage and the current market value of their home. The DoD HAP program has two separate tracks of eligbility.  The "government acquisition" benefits are designed for families who financed 100% of their purchase.   The second track "augmented sale" helps families who made significant down payments on their homes.

If you are a military family who owns a home in the Northern Virginia area and were stationed at Fort Belvoir, the Pentagon, Quantico or any of the Military District of Washington installations give Cindy Jones and CJ Realty Group a call at 703-346-2213.  Let our experience in helping families like your through the DoD HAP process work for you.  A number of the families we have assisted left the area and we are able to handle the transaction 100% remotely.  No need for you to come back to Northern Virginia...unless you want to.

Hannah-it is my pleasure to help qualified families through the HAP process and for those who aren't explore the alternatives which have included a short sale and VA Compromise Sale so far this year.

Brenda-the program is a win/win for both the seller and the buyer.  It takes a little patience on the buyer's side but not like waiting for a lender to approval or disapprove a short sale.

Ellie-I think getting additional funding just to support the families that now qualify is the first step.  There is lots of work behind the scenes to try and get the dates extended but not sure the budget is going to allow it.

Good afternoon Cindy,

What an awesome feeling of accomplishment you must feel helping families in these situations! There are many military families in need and wouldn't it be wonderful to see this program extended?

Dorie-it would be great.  I'm involved in efforts to try and make that happen but it is like pushing a large boulder uphill in the current atmosphere in Congress.
