Freddie Mac Debuts Site for Practitioners

This week, Freddie Mac launched the online Real Estate Professionals Resource Center, offering information on the latest affordable mortgage products to share with your clients as well as training and networking opportunities and customizable promotion tools. The new site is geared to real estate agents, brokers, and housing counselors.

"America's real estate professionals are critical in guiding and informing home buyers about their best options to become successful home owners," says Jerry Weiss, Freddie Mac's executive vice president and chief administrative officer. "Freddie Mac's Real Estate Professionals Resource Center will give agents and brokers up-to-date information on the mortgage products and solutions offered through our lenders to responsibly expand affordable home ownership opportunities, especially for first-time home buyers."

The webpage boasts special sections, such as how to increase your referrals, serve as a housing industry expert, and find and register for networking and training opportunities by Freddie Mac with the National Association of REALTORS® or other organizations. Also, a special section on the page features "In the Spotlight," which will focus on the latest market challenges, changes, and solutions. Currently, In the Spotlight covers ways to dispel the popular myth that buyers need a 20 percent down payment in order to purchase a home. The article highlights alternative sources for covering down payments and closing costs.
