From First Time Home Buyer Programs, FHA Loans, Down Payment Assistance Programs, and even how to invest in real estate; you can read about it at www.AskOzzie.com
    This site was created in wake of the mortgage fallout that has occured within the past few years. We believe that irresponsible Mortgage Professionals and Real Estate Agents failed to educate their clients and contributed ultimately to the record breaking foreclosures that have occured. The solution to this problem is education for the public to help avoid irresponsible "Real Estate and Mortgage Professionals".

Buying a home is often the single largest investment an American will make, so don't rush it and make sure you have the answers and the facts before jumping into anything.

Recent News:
1) No More 100% Financing:
Mortgage Lenders are pulling out of giving 100% financing. Pretty soon there will be few to no lenders that will offer 100% financing. Down Payments of 5% to 10%+ will more than likely be the only financing available, except FHA programs that require 3% Down. 
2) FHA Raises Limits:
FHA has raised its limits on purchase from $202,000 to $271,000(in Pearland and surrounding areas). This means that homebuyers that are looking into buying in higher priced areas, such as Pearland and Friendswood can now lock in great FHA rates when purchasing properties up to $271,000 in value with a Down Payment of 3%. Limits subject to jurisdiction.
3) Gift of Nehemiah wins Lawsuit:
Down Payment Assistance Programs won their lawsuit against HUD. This means that programs like Genesis, Gift of Nehemiah, and Ameridream will continue helping buyers with Down Payment Assistance.
