getting a mortgage

finance FAQ

 

Depending on your financial situation, new homes can be financed for as little as 3-3.5% down. When you are ready, contact your lender or our preferred lender to determine what amount works best for you.

Yes! We work directly with Supreme Lending. Please visit our First Midwest Bank to find out more.

No. You may choose to find your own lender. By using our preferred lender, you get the opportunity to work with knowledgeable lenders with years of experience in new construction lending. They will explain the entire mortgage process, show you all of your financial options, and make sure you find a deal that meets your personal needs.

Your closing costs depend on the type of loan you decide is best for you. Depending on your home state, you normally pay the following amounts.

  • Origination Fee: 1% of the loan amount – cost of establishing a loan
  • Discount Points: Used to lower the interest rate
  • Appraisal Fee: Dependent on the house size
  • Credit Report Fee: Charge for pulling your credit report from the credit bureaus
  • Underwriting Fee: Payment to the end investor for services provided
  • Processing Fee: Payment to the lender for services provided
  • Flood Certification Fee: Certification that your property is not in the 100 yr. flood zone
  • Title Charge: Payment to the title company for closing your loan
  • Recording Fee: Payment for filing fees depending on the state

Many of these costs are third party charges and cannot be negotiated by you or the lender.

On FHA loans, the minimum down payment is 3.5%. On a conventional loan, the down payment must be at least 5%. Additionally, the money on a conventional loan must be “seasoned” (60 days in the bank) prior to purchasing the home or be proceeds from the sale of your existing home.

A FHA loan requires an upfront mortgage insurance payment; a conventional loan does not. Both do require monthly mortgage Insurance premiums (MIP) based on the loan to value (LTV).

The taxes will be the same on either type of loan. A common mistake is that people believe their taxes will vary depending on the loan they choose.  The title company that closes the loan submits the taxes directly to the lender. If you reside in an attorney state, your representation is the one who orders the tax certificate from the appraisal district. Taxes reported to the lender will be included in your monthly loan payment. There is no mark-up or service charge over and above the actual tax amount.

Homeowner’s insurance works the same as taxes. You pay the lender for your policy amount on a monthly basis. The lender will escrow this amount and send it to your insurance company at the end of the year when renewal is due.

Interest rate differences will vary depending on the lender you choose. Most importantly, ALWAYS ask for the lowest rate for the type of loan you are obtaining.

The principal and interest portion of the payment is calculated by configuring the loan amount (MIP rolled into the balance on FHA) and term into an amortization schedule to calculate the payment amount. Ask your Supreme Lending representative for additional information on conventional and FHA loans.
