Nehemiah Program Update

By
Real Estate Agent with Better Properties Kent

I just heard from a preferred lender of mine who has been communicating with the folks in charge of administering the Nehemiah Program. According to the administrators of the Nehemiah Program, a Loan Officer has to register all of their Nehemiah loans online by 9/30/2008, to reserve the funds. After this date, the loan program will go away.

 

My lender has been trying to get clarification on the deadline to close these loans after registering them. The Nehemiah administrators said their is no specific date because the funds are coming from the Seller and the registration would have been executed by the Loan Officer to hold the funds. 

I am not sure about that answer because I had one FHA Nehemiah transaction in June that I didn't close on time.  The loan was registered and the funds had been at Escrow for 2 days. When my lender called the Nehemiah Program to ask how long the funds could say at Escrow, she was told 3-4 days. After that, the funds would have to be returned.

 

As I find out more on this subject I will let you know immediately. My point is that if you have an FHA Nehemiah deal try to close it as soon as possible.
  
Mortgage rates are on the rise. Today rates are around 6.625% for a 30 year fixed Conventional loan and 6.50 for FHA/VA 30 year fixed. FHA 3/1 arm is around 5.75%.

 i followed workingmom08's advice and went to the www.DPAgroundswell.org  website. Very informative...learned that there was a new bill introduced to keep DPA around indefinitely

H.R. 6694

A bill introduced by Representatives Maxine Waters, Gary Miller, Al Green and Christopher Shays on July 31, 2008, that would reinstate SF-DPA. If passed and signed into law, the FHA Seller-Financed Downpayment Reform and Risk-Based Pricing Authorization Act of 2008 (H.R. 6694) will allow downpayment assistance to continue indefinitely.

Good for you, Tracey!  More people need to take advantage of that website!  It makes sharing your opinion so easy!  By the way, I have an update: check out this article that talks about a possible compromise between HUD and DPA!  http://www.inman.com/news/2008/09/9/congress-weighs-reprieve-seller-funded-gifts I think if we keep letting our voices be heard, we can truly save Down-payment Assistance Programs in America!
