DOWN PAYMENT AND CLOSING COSTS DOWN PAYMENTS

Your down payment is a percentage of the value of the house you want to buy. The exact percentage depends on the requirements of the lender for the type of mortgage you choose. In order to qualify for most mortgages you will need a down payment between 3-20% of the price of the house. Closing costs usually range from 2-7% of the property value. You may be required to have private mortgage insurance (PMI) if your down payment is less than 20%. Private mortgage insurance protects the lender if the mortgage goes into default.

CLOSING COSTS

You will need additional money for closing costs. These costs vary by region but generally range between 2-7% of the property value.

Closing costs include points, origination fees, taxes, title insurance, financing costs and items that must be prepaid or escrowed and other costs. You will receive a written estimate of these costs from your lender after you apply for the mortgage.

BEGIN WITH YOUR CREDIT REPORT When you look for a mortgage, lenders will review your credit report. Your credit report is a history of how you have managed your finances and repaid debt. It provides information on money you have borrowed and a history of your payments. Your credit history is pulled together into a credit report by three private companies: Equifax, Experian and Trans Union. These companies sell your credit report to banks and other creditors so they can review mortgage and loan applications.

Your credit report includes: • A list of debts, such as credit cards and car loans, and a history of how you have paid them. • Any bills that have been referred to a collection agency. This can include items like phone and medical bills. • Public record information, such as tax liens or bankruptcies, even if these have happened several years ago. • Inquiries made about your creditworthiness. An inquiry is made when you request credit. Many times your report will also show if you were given credit based on the inquiry. Most of the information in your credit report is deleted after 7 years (a bankruptcy is deleted after 10 years) and is continuously updated to reflect the latest information.

Your credit report is a history of how you have managed your finances and repaid debt. If you would like to receive a copy of your credit report, contact one or all three of these credit reporting agencies.

View all current listings in Maine 24/7 at:

Lenders typically want the buyer to contribute a portion of their own funds toward the purchase of a home. These funds are often referred to as the down payment. There are many options available to home buyers who need help with down payments. Some mortgage financing requires as little as 3 percent down. How much will you need at closing? Consider a family that wants to purchase a $150,000 home with a required down payment of 5 percent. The down payment would total $7,500. You also have to be prepared to pay closing costs, which can range from 3 percent to 6 percent of the sales price of the home. For a $150,000 home, that would mean $4,500 to $9,000, depending on your down payment.

HOUSE HUNTING HINTS

Shopping for a home can be a little overwhelming. You might forget one house from the next. You may get frustrated that you haven’t found your dream home or get so excited you forget to focus on your wants and needs. Here are some tips for house hunting: • Carry a camera, take photos of the house. • Bring a “Home Visit Worksheet” and take notes on the house. • Don’t make spur of the moment decisions. Selecting a home is a decision that takes time. • Review your notes, and compare houses against your wants, needs and budget. • Bring your spouse, a family member or friend. It’s useful to get their feedback. • Find out utility and maintenance costs. Ask the owners or ask your real estate professional to find out.
