This second video picks-up from the first clip and talks about the Whaley operation providing a more in-depth view of how these early homes were built.
Our filmmaker and great story teller takes us back in time through a journey highlighting fascinating details of how the Los Altos and nearby communities evolved. I didn’t realize this earlier, but most of the Whaley developments were primarilly funded throught FHA government insured loans (Federal Housing Administration), one of the most versatile home financing programs offering low-down payments and more flexible underwriting guidelines to first-time home buyers as well as many other borrowers.

As a first time home buyer what are your options when it comes to loan programs? Read on to hear my take on what’s available.
