Fannie Mae is offering 3.5 percent in closing cost assistance and a $1,500 bonus to buyers’ real estate agent or broker for people purchasing a Fannie Mae-owned HomePath® property.

Fannie Mae is trying to entice buyers to buy one of their HomePath® homes by offering to pay up to 3.5 percent in closing cost assistance as well as a $1,500 bonus to the buyers agent for owner-occupants who close on the purchase of a property listed on HomePath.com before December 31, 2010. The incentive is for new purchases only, for contracts entered into after September 23, 2010 and closed within 60 days, but in no event later than December 31, 2010.

According to Fannie Mae, more than eighty-seven thousand families have purchased a HomePath property in the first of of 2010 – nearly double from the same period in 2009.

  • How to Make a Website

    How to make a website in just a few easy steps. Yes, read along and I will teach you how to
    make a website in just a few easy steps. Although there are many
    ways to make a website and will take a lot of efforts. A professional web designer
    can make a website within a week. It really depends on how big and how complicated the website
    to make.

    For a new person without any knowledge in anything about website,
    maybe 1month or more. But if you are not familiar with anything yet and you use
    a website builder software, maybe you can make a website in just 1 week depends on how
    long you are going to play along with your design using
    the software.

    Let us make a website and have it up and running in just a
    few easy steps.

    First, purchase your domain name. domain name is
    a unique address that can be used on the Internet. It is what you see
    in the address bar after the “w w w.” The name, which can be up to 63 characters long, can be used with
    different TLDs, such as.com,.org and.net. There are
    also country specific Top Level Domains, such as.au for
    australia,.ph for The Philippines and.de for Germany.

    Remember to pick a nice name for your domain because this will
    represent you or your business website so if let’s say you are planning to build a website for catering service and your name is Julia, you don’t wanna call your website julia.com people don’t know if what is within julia.com
    and might not click on your site if they found it
    because they are looking for a website for a catering
    service. The best name to pick for that matter should be juliascatering.com or juliascateringservices.com

    Second, purchase your hosting. Web Hosting or ‘Hosting’ is
    a service provided by a vendor which offers a
    physical location for the storage of web pages and files. Think of a Web Hosting Company as a type of landlord, they rent physical space on their servers allowing web pages to be
    viewed on the Internet. It is where you are going to upload
    your website and have it accessible anytime for the web.

    Usually, If you are going to buy a hosting for your website, they will
    offer you to pick a domain name first then choose for a plan. Hosting Companies have different plans.

    Example of these are:

    Basic Plan: 1 year Hosting Service for $8/month, 1 domain, 10 email accounts, 10 FTP accounts.

    Business Plan: 1 year Hosting Service for $12/month, unlimited email accounts, unlimited FTP,

    Professional Plan: 1 year Hosting Service for $15/month, unlimited email accounts, unlimited FTP, Unlimited Space, Unlimited Bandwidth.

    These are just an example of how hosting
    companies are offering their service. Prices and services are different in every hosting companies so be wise and choose the best.Third, purchase a premade website template.
    Yes, a premade website template. Go out and look for something that is related to the website that
    you like. There are many template store out there that offer a very nice
    design. You can buy a single template for about $50 but you can also find a template package for about $30.
    This way you don’t have to spend time designing the graphics and coding HTML anymore.
    It is all done and all you have to do is modify it
    and fill it with your own.

    And last, log-in to you cpanel from your web-host and upload your website
    from file manger if you are not yet familiar on how
    to upload files in FTP.

    Buying your domain name and your hosting should be the first thing you should do because it
    will take time especially your domain to propagate. This may take up to 24 hours.
    By the time you finish modifying the premade template you bought,
    your domain name is already available and once you are done with
    your template and uploaded it, stretch up– you now have your own website.
