A down payment may come from the buyers own cash or from a gift from a relative, legal guardianship or domestic partner.

Advice for Buyers

by The Peggy Graves Team

When buying a home, buyers should know that even though you have been pre-approved for a mortgage it isn't final until is funded. So many things can change prior to closing that can affect the borrowers' financial situation and ability to get a loan. Buyers are advised to do absolutely nothing that will affect their credit until after the loan closes. This includes purchasing a new car, furniture, opening a new credit card account or changing jobs.

Getting pre-approved helps the buyer save time and money by looking at the homes that fit their budget, finding the best rate and term and uncovering and curing possible credit issues early on. It can also give you some bargaining power when writing a contract and will speed up the closing process.

Be sure to shop around to be sure you are getting the best interest rate and lowest closing costs. Lenders will require you to show proof of income, employment verification, bank statements(assets), liabilities, down payment, drivers' license and social security number. Your Realtor should be able to give you a few recommendations of ones they have had experience working with. If you are thinking of buying a home, The Peggy Graves Team can help guide you along every step of the way. Call 731-664-2342.
