The approval of Larken Associates’ Warren Heights and Delaware Crossing for friendly financing offered by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) has unquestionably played a key role in the sales success at these two Lopatcong Township residential communities.
The FHA financing option – which requires as little as a 3.5% down payment – has teamed with historically low interest rates and extremely competitive pricing at the Warren County new home neighborhoods to make homeownership more attractive than ever to the many purchasers looking to take advantage of market conditions and receive never-before-seen value.
“Today’s homebuyers are well versed on the state of the real estate marketplace and realize there are opportunities available that make this the perfect time to buy,” says Marilyn Cornelia, Larken’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “These include federal programs such as FHA financing which was introduced to make homeownership more attainable for a whole new segment of qualified buyers.
“This is certainly the case at Warren Heights and Delaware Crossing where we’ve seen a significant increase in homebuyers looking to take advantage of the program and receive considerable savings by purchasing at an FHA approved community.”
