    (4) Special Loan Programs

  1. New Mexico Finance Authority provides loans for first time home buyers.        
  2. Each program varies according to specific guidelines.

On considering loan type that will best meet the buyer needs, it is important to make the loan application before looking at homes. Reasons:

  1.   Determines what price range a buyer qualifies for.
  2.   Clarifies the loan process and what is required.
  3.   It makes the buyer a cash buyer and helps the Buyer’s Broker negotiate the best price on a home.

Please remember these examples are for illustration purposes only.

My goal is to make this process an enjoyable experience!
