What is the First Look Program?
In Florida, the First Look period is typically the first 15 days a property is listed on HomePath.com, Properties within the First Look period include a countdown clock on the property details page, which displays the number of days remaining for negotiation with eligible purchasers. This gives a homeowner who is purchasing a property as a primary residence the “First Opportunity” to purchase a Fannie Mae house.
Investor offers can only be submitted after the 15 day expiration of the First Look period.
