Now there is a way to give back to your elderly parents that is also an investment opportunity for you. Resource Financial Services is proud to offer Fannie Mae’s Family Opportunity Loan, which allows you to purchase a property for your parents if they cannot qualify on their own credit. If you are interested in purchasing a home in one of the 12 states in which we are licensed – Alabama, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia – we may be able to help you save money on a second home.
Traditionally, buying a second residence would require an investment property mortgage, which can have higher interest rates and higher monthly payments. The Family Opportunity Loan allows you to buy a home as an owner occupied residence, even though you don’t plan to live in it.
That means, as a child of aging parents, you can supply housing for them and obtain the same rates, fees and lending flexibility as it you were buying your own home to live in.
Assisting your aging parents:
- You must be able to document that your parents are unable to afford the mortgage (provide parents’ tax returns)
- You must qualify for both your home and the parents’ home
- Property must be occupied as the primary residence by the parents
- Property location can be near you; it doesn’t have to be a certain distance away
- You must provide a letter explaining the parents’ financial inability and their intent for occupying the home.
The Family Opportunity Loan can also helps families purchase a home for adult children living with disabilities.
