by Ryan Smith13 Jun 2014
Freddie Mac has announced a push to help service members and veterans in North Carolina buy homes.

Freddie is teaming up with the Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals and the Kingdom Community Development Corporation to hold a housing fair in Fayetteville, N.C., June 21. The “American Heroes Housing Fair and Open House” will provide veterans and service members with free borrower counseling and information about closing cost incentives for buyers who purchase homes through HomeSteps, Freddie’s REO sales division.

"The American Heroes Housing Fair and Open House is about fulfilling the American Dream the men and women in our armed forces fight for every day,” said Christina Diaz-Malone, Freddie Mac’s vice president of corporate relations and housing outreach. “It is about training veterans and active duty personnel to become successful homeowners in North Carolina. Home ownership is Freddie Mac's mission. We are proud to work with the Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals and the Kingdom CDC to make homeownership possible for today's military families.”

Service members and veterans can also tour active HomeSteps listings during the event. The HomeSteps Buy-A-Home initiative can provide up to 3% of seller-paid closing costs when buyers purchase a HomeSteps home.
