Howard University Sponsors Home Financing Web Site for EmployeesWASHINGTON
At a time when interest rates are at a historic low, employees at Howard University can obtain valuable information about buying or refinancing a home from a university-sponsored Web site. Howard’s Home Buyer’s Assistance site, featuring information from leading national lenders Cendant Mortgage and HomeSide Lending and powered by Fannie Mae, helps users understand the home-buying process and whether they should refinance an existing home loan.
For example, the site advises users that refinancing may make sense if they want to:
• Get a lower interest rate to reduce their monthly payment.
• Borrow additional funds for home improvements, education costs, or debt consolidation.
• Switch from the variability of an adjustable-rate loan to the certainty of a fixed-rate loan.
• Build equity faster with a shorter-term loan.
The Web site includes information on special opportunities for which Howard employees may qualify when obtaining a loan through designated lenders. The Home Buyer’s Assistance site can be viewed at <http://howardu.homebuyerassist.net>.
