WASHINGTON, -- Fannie Mae (NYSE: FNM) announced the company launched a Spanish version of its HomePath.com website designed to help more potential homeowners who speak Spanish purchase Fannie Mae-owned properties.
The new website in Spanish mirrors the English version of HomePath.com featuring an interactive search tool of Fannie Mae-owned properties nationwide, details about HomePath® financing, a mortgage payment calculator, property alerts, as well as information on foreclosure prevention and the Making Home Affordable((SM)) program.
Through HomePath.com, potential homeowners can access a database that includes a wide selection of homes from around the country - including the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico - which can be purchased directly from Fannie Mae. Properties include detailed information and photographs of single-family homes, condominiums, and town houses located in a variety of neighborhoods.
"HomePath.com is a great resource that can help people find a lifelong home for themselves and their families," said Fannie Mae Executive Vice President, Terry W. Edwards. "The website has a wealth of information to inform and guide potential homeowners through the process of buying a Fannie Mae-owned property."
The new release of HomePath.com in Spanish is part of a continuous effort aimed at improving access to information and resources which play a vital role in aiding both English and Spanish-speaking populations in the U.S. purchase homes, while helping minimize the impact on communities hit by foreclosures.
