What is the importance of getting pre-approved for a mortgage? How do you go about getting pre-approved?
In our Central Texas housing market, the number of buyers searching for their dream homes greatly exceeds the number of homes for sale. This has led to a competitive marketplace where buyers often need to stand out. One way to show you are serious about buying your dream home is to get pre-qualified or pre- approved for a mortgage before starting your search.
Downpayment and Closing Costs
How do you need for your down payment? Are there any closing costs that buyers should be aware of? What is the process of purchasing a home?
One of the many advantages of working with us is that we have relationships with lenders who will be able to help you with this process. Once you have selected a lender, you will need to fill out their loan application and provide them with important information regarding “your credit, debt, work history, down payment and residential history.”
If you have saved up your down payment and are ready to start your home search, one other piece of the puzzle is to make sure that you have saved enough for your closing costs.
What is a home warranty? Is it worth purchasing? What is the difference between a home warranty for new construction and for a resale home?
NEW HOME WARRANTIES:
When you purchase a newly built home, the builder usually offers some sort of full or limited warranty on things such as the quality of design, materials, and workmanship. These warranties are usually for a period of one-year from the purchase of the home.
RESALE HOME WARRANTIES:
When you purchase a resale home, you can purchase warranties that will protect you against most ordinary flaws and breakdowns for at least the first year of occupancy. The warranty may be offered by either the Seller, as part of the overall package, or by the agent. Even with a warranty, you should have the home carefully inspected before you purchase it.
A home warranty program will give you peace of mind, knowing that the major covered components in your home will be repaired if necessary. Ask me for more details about home warranty packages.
Should you get a home inspection? What if it’s a brand new home?
Whether you are purchasing a new construction or resale property, we highly recommend that you have a professional home inspector conduct a thorough inspection.
The inspection is not designed to criticize every minor problem or defect in the home. It is intended to report on major damage or serious problems that require repair. Should serious problems be indicated, the inspector will recommend that a structural engineer or other professional inspect it as well.
Your home cannot “pass or fail” an inspection, and your inspector will not tell you whether he/she thinks the home is worth the money you are offering. The inspector’s job is to make you aware of repairs that are recommended or necessary.
