*The Ownership Conversion pilot is for first-time homebuyers who meet Fannie Mae’s eligibility requirements. An individual is considered a “first-time home buyer” if he or she (1) is purchasing the home being purchased; (2) will reside in the home being purchased as a principal residence; and (3) had no ownership interest (sole or joint) in a residential property during the three-year period preceding the date of the purchase of the home. In addition, an individual who is a displaced homemaker or single parent also will be considered a first-time home buyer if he or she had no ownership interest in a principal residence (other than a joint ownership interest with a spouse) during the preceding three-year time period.
