New Tool to Reassure Sellers that Minnesota Housing Funds Are Available
To reassure sellers that Minnesota Housing homebuyer programs are available, we have created an Open for Business Letter that we would encourage you to pass along to your real estate partners for their use when presenting a purchase offer. The letter explains that Minnesota Housing has continuously served Minnesotans during the best and the most challenging economic environments and that all Minnesota Housing homeownership programs are available, including downpayment and closing costs loans.
