3.5% down payment for first time home buyer mortgage new York
Being a homeowner is the American dream. For many, it remains a dream kept far out of reach due to finances. Purchasing a home can be one of the most expensive purchases that can be made. However, this can be a thing of the past! We can help potential homeowners to get a loan that can be used toward 3.5% down toward the purchase of a home for first time homeowners.
There are many factors involved when looking to apply for a home owner’s loan. For one, maintaining a good credit score will help speed up the process and put the buyer in a position to get more competitive rates for interest. This can help save money in the long term. Another thing to consider is, after obtaining a loan, will the homeowner be able to maintain the monthly payments. It would be terrible for someone to take out a loan on a home and lose it because of inability to pay.
This would put the homeowner in a position of no longer having a home, but still having a loan to pay off. Another important factor to consider is if the homeowner will be able to afford closing and moving costs.Being sure to understand how a home owner’s loan works will also help to make sure that this will be a dream come true.
