Financial Information

Financing Information

There are numerous ways to finance homes and land.

100% financing
1st time home buyers
FHA loan (3.5% down payment)
Rural development/ USDA loan
Conventional

Majority of the loans available as based on the household income and debt ratios. If you are a 1st time home buyer there are loans offering up to 100% financing, tax credits, down payment assistance and more. The most utilized program is FHA, which requires 3.5% of principle down payment.

My suggestion to any buyer is to contact the lender of your choice, meet with them and discuss your situation (i.e.: debt, income, credit, down payment, etc.) A good banker has many loan programs to offer but should recognize which program is best for you.

Some of the information a lender will need are the past 2 year’s tax return, current pay stubs, etc. There are not any fees for the application process but once you start the loan process generally $500. is required to order an appraisal of the property you are buying. Closing cost of a loan generally runs 3-4% of the amount borrowed. Closing cost include the survey, termite inspection, title insurance, bank fees etc. In some cases you can negotiate the contract and have the seller pay the closing cost.

For land, acreage or mobile home financing requirement is different than residential. Most lenders will require 10 – 20% down payment. The previous residential loan program mentioned does not qualify for vacant land.
