Get Pre-qualified and figure out the financing that is best for you

·         Start by getting an idea of how much of a monthly payment you can handle by using online mortgage calculators, such as those found on your bank website, Realtor.com or Zillow.com

 

·         Begin the mortgage pre-approval process by contacting a mortgage broker or retail lender (bank or online mortgage source)

 

·         Understand that mortgage pre-approval isn’t a 100% guarantee your loan will go through—ask your mortgage provider what types of issues could arise

 

·         Consider your options based on your own personal situation:

 

o   Conventional (fixed rate mortgage in 15-, 20- or 30-year term)

o   Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) with a fluctuating interest rate tied to the U.S. Treasury   Securities Index

o   FHA Loan is a federally backed mortgage that requires only 3.5% down and can help those with less-than-stellar credit

o   VA Loan features attractive rates and flexible terms for active military or veterans

o   HUD184  Indian Home Loan Guarantee Program is a home mortgage specifically designed for American Indian and Alaska Native families, Alaska Villages, Tribes, or Tribally Designated Housing Entities. It requires only 2.75% down. 

o   In-House Financing is offered typically by developers on new-construction homes

 

·         Apply for pre-approval knowing it can help you be a more attractive buyer to the seller and speed up the closing process.
