Low Cost Loans for Homeowners

In our staff meeting today, we had the pleasure of meeting with Brenda Yaritz and Jim Hasnik of Center for Energy and Environment and CEE Financial Services. They provide low cost loans to homeowners in need of home improvements. These funds can be used for new windows, insulation, siding, furnaces and much more!

These programs are implemented as part of neighborhood or city homeowner assistance. They are easy to get and the best part, as I see it, is they look at the whole picture of the home owner. Ordinarily, to receive a home equity or home improvement loan, the home owner has to go through the entire loan qualifying process and be underwritten by a federal qualifying program like FANNIE MAE or FREDDIE MAC. With CEE, homeowners are talking with real people who see them as real people.

Look at their website: http://www.mncee.org/. Type in your city to see programs available for you. From now on, CEE will be linked to the Buyers Real Estate Group website.
