Home Ownership Series

Step 6: Get Financing
Mortgage financing is a very important
aspect of buying a home. Once you include
interest and closing fees, the cost of real
estate funding is often more than the original
purchase price. With this said, it is good to
gather as much information as possible on
different mortgage options and costs avail-
able to you.


What type of home loan do
I need?
Though there are tons of mortgage options made accessible by different lenders, typically the
loan you choose will be determined from a few key factors:

•      How much do you plan to put down? There are some loans available with 5 percent down
       or less – actually, in recent years, major lenders have financed loans with no money down.

•      If you plan on placing a down payment of 20 percent or less, lenders will ask that the
       mortgage be backed by an outside third party. Some include the Federal Housing Admin
       istration (FHA) or the Veterans Administration (VA). Another option is private mortgage
       insurance (PMI). This is necessary to protect the lender from possible mortgage defaults.
       Every year, millions of FHA, VA, and PMI loans are generated.

•      Do you have a good line of credit? Eligible borrowers with good, solid credit are granted
       the best terms and rates. If you wish to receive a great loan, make sure you are paying in
       full and on time all of your installment payments, credit card notices, rent bills, and mort-
       gage bills.

•       Is this your first time buying a home? It can sometimes be perceived that “first-time
        buyer” refers to a person who has never owned property in the past. This is not always
        true. Under several state programs, this term refers to a person who has not owned any
        property for the previous three years.


How can I obtain a home loan?
To begin the mortgage process you must fill out a loan application as well as provide all neces-
sary documentation. Some of the documents needed include current paycheck stubs, copies of
recent bank statements, and if you are self-employed, tax returns and rental checks from the past
two to three years are required. Your loan officer will explain in detail all of the paperwork you
need to provide during the prequalification procedure.
