Promoting homeownership through an innovative program

As communities across America work to recover from the housing crisis, Wells Fargo announced the NeighborhoodLIFTSM and CityLIFTSM programs. The Wells Fargo LIFT programs are designed to provide down payment assistance, homebuyer education and homebuyer support in the cities most deeply affected by the crisis. So far the program has been implemented in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Houston, Miami, Tampa, Jacksonville, Orlando, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. Upcoming cities for the program include Memphis, Chicago, Sacramento and Oakland.

The Wells Fargo LIFT programs invest in the future by supporting sustainable homeownership and neighborhood stability. A collaborative effort sponsored by Wells Fargo and local nonprofit organizations, the programs provide:

Down payment assistance for qualified buyers

Financial education to help buyers prepare for homeownership

Events to showcase area homes for sale

Owner transfered gives big deals…

A good friend of mines has an incredible opportunity to relocate to New Mexico. She and her husband have always been savvy investors with a determined spirit. They have been a role model for my family, and although sad to see them leave-I rejoice in their ability to.   On the Real Estate front, this  transfer opens up a home in a pretty stable subdivision not far from Grant Park.  Take a look at this home tour- the home is listed on FMLS for $238K
