Freddie Mac announced the company is teaming up with the Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals and the Kingdom Community Development Corporation to hold the American Heroes Housing Fair and Open House on June 21 in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
The event is free, and will provide service members, veterans, and their families with free borrower counseling, house tours, and news about a closing cost incentive provided by Freddie Mac. The incentive is for homes that are a part of the HomeSteps program, Freddie Mac's REO sales division.
"The American Heroes Housing Fair and Open House is about fulfilling the American Dream the men and women in our armed forces fight for every day. It is about training veterans and active duty personnel to become successful homeowners in North Carolina," said Christina Diaz-Malone, VP of Corporate Relations and Housing Outreach at Freddie Mac.
She continued, "Homeownership is Freddie Mac's mission. We are proud to work with the Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals and the Kingdom CDC to make homeownership possible for today's military families."
The housing fair and open house will provide attendees with news about HomeSteps Buy-A-Home initiative that can provide up to three percent of seller paid closing costs when buyers purchase a HomeSteps home.
Active HomeSteps homes will be available for tours. CreditSmart, the financial literary program developed by Freddie Mac, will offer borrower counseling and education.
