Mortgage lenders have two opportunities this fall to learn about North Dakota Housing Finance Agency’s (NDHFA) homeownership programs.
“While North Dakota Housing Finance Agency primarily assists first-time buyers, the training also includes an introduction to our more unique homeownership programs – HomeAccess and North Dakota Roots,” said Brandon Dettlaff, homeownership division director.
NDHFA’s FirstHome™ program provides the low-cost financing and down payment and closing cost assistance many households require to successfully become homeowners.
Single parents with at least one dependent child residing in the home 50 percent of the time, households with elderly or permanently disabled family members, and honorably discharged veterans can receive purchase assistance through the agency’s HomeAccess program.
NDHFA recently received legislative approval to expand its lending capabilities, to finance mortgage loans for higher-income individuals and families and to refinance residential real estate loans. The assistance is provided under its North Dakota Roots program.
The first face-to-face training session is Sept. 22nd at Great River Energy, 1611 E Century Ave, Bismarck, ND. A second training, on Oct. 6th, is at the Dakota Medical Foundation, 4141 29th Ave S, Fargo, ND.
There are no registration fees, however, pre-registration is required. Both classes are limited to 50 people. The target audience for the training is the new staff of participating lenders, the financial institutions that originate loans on NDHFA’s behalf. If space is available, current participating lender staff interested in a refresher course and lenders considering offering the agency’s programs are welcome to attend.
Lenders who are unable to attend one of the scheduled sessions are encouraged to check out the training videos available on the agency’s website.
Questions regarding NDHFA’s homeownership programs or the lender training can be directed to the agency’s homeownership division staff at (800) 292-8621 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
