Discounts for our Heroes – Real Estate News

Q: Who qualifies as a hero?
A: Workforce Heroes include, but are not limited to: teachers, firefighters, public safety officers, health care workers, military personnel, and others who provide quality services to the public every day. To find out if you qualify, please contact Homes for Heroes at info@homesforheroes.com or else toll-free at (866) 4 Heroes/(866) 443-7637.

The heroes in our communities deserve the best.  All to often, unfortunately, they are unaware that they can realize their dream of home ownership while enjoying significant discounts on Mortgage Lender fees, Realtor commissions, Title fees and inspections.

The Homes for Heroes program is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that was formed in 2002 as a way to thank the heroes and first responders in our communities.  Since then, they’ve helped thousands of heroes by collecting a network of affiliates who agree to offer steep discounts to the heroes on their real estate transactions.  The Michael Mann Team at Fairway Independent Mortgage is a proud member of that affiliate network.  You can visit their FAQ site HERE.

So, what are the benefits?

After joining the Homes for Heroes network, the hero can expect:

✓ 25% of the gross commission paid to your Homes For Heroes
real estate Affiliate’s company, whether you buy, sell or both
✓ Discounted lending fees on purchase or refinance with a HFH preferred lender
✓ Discount on Private Home Inspections with HFH preferred Home inspection company
✓ Discount on closing fee when using HFH preferred Title Company

Note: The total amount of savings will vary with each transaction, due to the final selling price of your home. KS, LA, MS, OK, OR, AL,TN AND MO have restrictions on rebates. Please contact us for details.

NO STRINGS, NO RED TAPE, NO HIDDEN COSTS…We just want to say “Thank You” for serving our community!

The Michael Mann Team at Fairway Independent Mortgage will waive ALL lender fees for a qualified hero on their transaction.  We can also refer you to a Homes for Heroes affiliated Realtor if you need one.

Real Estate and Mortgages – Sales to Millennials

RE: Blogged from Rob Chrisman:

According to Zillow Real Estate Research, home ownership rates among millennials have declined over the past four decades mainly due to changing family structures. Zillow honed in on marital status and employment rates to determine how many young adults are purchasing homes. Its staff found that the homeownership rate is above historical levels for young married couples that are engaged in full time employment, as well as single young adults working full time – but has declined since the recession. The homeownership rate has declined over the past four decades among married couples, where only one spouse is working full time and the other is unemployed. The homeownership rate among married couples where one spouse is working full time and the other spouse is working part time has slightly declined over the past decade whereas there is no difference in the homeownership rate for young adults who are single and work part time or are unemployed.

 

Dave Savage writes, “Millennials are one of the hot topics lately in the real estate industry. Born between 1980 and 1994 they will make up half of the nation’s workforce by 2020. Coming from MBA Las Vegas two of the best educational resources equipped to help you understand the millennial opportunity are the proven leaders at Re:SourceTV and Mortgage Coach.  “Getting Ahead of the Millennial Takeover” is a 5 minute video sharing important considerations to have in mind when talking to this key demographic.
