We called around to our local financial institutions about relief for PRNTA and CUPE members.  The general response was that it is best to go into your credit union or bank to set up an appointment to explore the possibilities.

  1. Real estate market is really shaken up during the COVID-19 days. Real estate agents alexandria va and I were discussing the renewal of real estate market in USA after COVID.

  2. USDA loans have low-interest rates and no down payment requirements, they are a great option. Currently, they're one of the few programs available to first-time homebuyers that covers the whole cost of the loan. An additional benefit for many homebuyers is the possibility of including the cost of repairs and renovations in the overall loan amount. Mortgage insurance costs are also significantly reduced, from 0.04 per cent to a flat 0.04 per cent regardless of how much is put down. Additionally, since there is no cap on how much a USDA loan may be used for, many prospective homebuyers may find that they have greater buying power with a USDA loan than they would with a traditional private mortgage.
