Consumers saddled with student loan debt often have to delay financial goals, like buying a home. But for those who want the benefits of ownership before their student debt is paid off, Fannie Mae has options that can make it easier to qualify and handle the monthly payments.

While you can’t give specific financial advice to clients, you can help them understand the benefits and risks. “We can be advocates for our clients and potentially direct them to the right place,” says Mary Shanley Aloisio, a sales associate with Dream Town Realty in Chicago.
