Top 3 first-time home buyer mistakes

Don’t make these common first-time home buyer mistakes. It could cost you thousands and we see them made everyday.

1
Using a BIG bank

Bigger the bank, higher the rate. Buyers get marked up retail rates to offset the bank's overhead.

2
Afraid to shop around

Buyers falsely believe multiple credit inquiries will negatively impact their score and ability to qualify.

3
Paying closing costs

Most FHA buyers end up refinancing later to get away from PMI, so why pay closing costs twice?

What do I need to qualify?

When it comes down to it, it’s really just a numbers game and it breaks down like this:

What do I need to qualify?

Qualifying for an FHA loan is easier than you’d think. While there are a number of determining factors, here are some of the basic criteria:

580+
Minimum 580 credit score

Preferably a minimum 620 credit score but can be as low as 580 depending on overall credit history.

50%
Maximum 50% DTI ratio

Preferably 45%, however depending on your credit score and reserves, we can go as high as 50%.

3.5%
Minimum 3.5% downpayment

Funds can come from your checking, savings, 401(k) or gifted by immediate family members.

FHA No Closing Cost Options

How will a no closing cost option impact my loan?

Typically, there are standard closing costs associated with getting a mortgage– such as origination charges, title charges, government recording and transfer taxes.

A no closing cost mortgage is not some special promotion and is available every day. Simply put, you get credit from the interest rates available to cover all or most closing costs.

Here’s an example detailing how much would need to bring to closing with and without closing costs.

This example is assuming seller is choosing the title company and paying for the owner’s title insurance policy and that the seller is an individual that is paying the customary doc stamps on the deed.  The estimated pre-paids assume a property tax estimate of 1.25% of the purchase price and a home insurance policy of $1200 per year.

Minimum and maximum loan amounts apply.  Lender credit towards closing costs will vary based on borrower credit scores.

Borrowers with low credit score may not be able to receive enough lender credit to cover all closing costs and pre-paids.  The instant example is assuming a 740+ credit score for a purchase of a single-family residence. Your cash to close assumes that the appraisal fee and home inspection fee are paid directly to the third-party providers prior to closing.  All loans are subject to credit approvals that must meet Fannie Mae underwriting guidelines.
