Check Out Our Fresh Face

Feb 10, 2014

If you're a return visitor to the Know Your Options website, you probably noticed our front page has a bright new look—and we’ve added even more content to educate consumers on all aspects of homeownership and renting.

"Fannie Mae's mission is to help people rent, buy or refinance their homes, so our Know Your Options website has grown from its original focus of helping homeowners avoid foreclosure to become more inclusive and offer additional assistance," notes Courtney Green the marketing manager who directed the site refresh.


  • A new homepage layout focuses on the top-visited areas of the site and easily directs visitors to those sections.
  • A new "Sell" section helps homeowners understand the process of selling their home, from researching home values in their area to options for listing the home.
  • An expanded Reverse Mortgage section offers more resources and news to senior homeowners who have a reverse mortgage and may be struggling with the requirements of their loan, such as paying property-related expenses like property taxes and homeowner’s insurance.

Keep watching for other additions in 2014, including new homeowner stories, expanded content, and more news and resources. And thank you for your visit today!
