As part of Fannie Mae’s ongoing efforts to help our partners expand access to mortgage credit for qualified buyers, we’ve launched HOME by Fannie Mae™, a new mobile app that educates future homeowners about the steps and responsibilities of buying and owning a home.

HOME by Fannie Mae supports the goals and efforts of our lender partners by providing educational resources to reduce barriers to homeownership. The app offers useful tools to help homebuyers:

• figure out what they can afford,

• understand their mortgage payments,

• save for a down payment, and,

• learn how much they can save in interest by making extra
  mortgage payments.

We hope that you’ll not only share HOME by Fannie Mae with everyone in your network, but download this resourceful app to your personal Android or Apple mobile devices. For more about the app, view our video. And be sure to visit the Access to Mortgage Credit page to learn how Fannie Mae is helping to grow sound business opportunities for lenders and sustainable homeownership opportunities for consumers.
