City, Wells Fargo to begin housing initiative

ATLANTA -- 11Alive News has learned that Wells Fargo plans to team up with the City of Atlanta to invest several million dollars to jump-start and revitalize several city neighborhoods hard hit with dozens of foreclosed or abandoned homes.

To get potential homeowners into the properties, Wells Fargo reportedly will offer big incentives -- including grants of up to $15,000 so homebuyers can remodel or renovate the homes they buy.

The bank will also offer grants covering down payments on affordable mortgages in order to get homebuyers into homes quickly.

An inventory of available homes is expected to be put together by Wells Fargo and the city, starting with more than 100 homes -- with help from real estate brokers and non-profit organizations.
