New Assistance for Military Homeowners

The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) announced that military homeowners with Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac loans who receive Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders will be eligible to sell their homes in a short sale, even if they are current on their mortgage.
