In today’s video, we dive into the latest policy clarification from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which has significant implications for real estate agents and loan officers. Released just this morning, these updates primarily focus on seller concessions and the role of interested party contributions (IPCs) in real estate transactions.

Key Points Covered:
1. **Seller Concessions**: Understand the updated limits on seller concessions, which are funds used towards closing costs such as title fees, appraisal fees, and other legitimate expenses. We’ll explore how these concessions vary by loan type and the impact on your transactions.

2. **Buyer’s Agent Fees**: Can buyer’s agent fees be included in seller concessions? We discuss Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s stance on including these fees as long as they are customary for the area, and how this could affect the payment of other closing costs.

3. **IPC Guidelines**: Discover the specifics of Interested Party Contributions and how these can be leveraged in real estate deals without affecting normal seller concession limits. This is a crucial update for ensuring compliance and maximizing transaction flexibility.

4. **VA’s Position**: We also touch on the Veterans Affairs (VA) current policy which differs from other agencies and how impending changes could align their guidelines with the new standards set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
