The Dan Ryan Builders approach to customer satisfaction is simple: They build every Dan Ryan Builders home as if they were going to live in it themselves. They build it right. Then they follow up with responsive service, whenever and wherever it’s needed. Immediately following each settlement, they provide owners with a phone number to call for prompt, professional service. They make every effort to respond within 24 hours and to handle emergency calls without delay. From blueprint to move-in – and beyond – the company’s experienced, dedicated and resourceful staff is always looking for ways to make each Dan Ryan Builders home the best it can be in every way.

And that expanded vision not only applies to the local geographic area, but also includes thinking outside the box, with exciting home collections, novel floor plans, modern features and, of course, neighborhood “A” locations. Part of the Dan Ryan Builders expansion is to add dynamic new plans and collections. Each collection will feature new plans in addition to the company’s most popular plans, offering an impressive array of choices to meet homebuyers’ differing wants and needs. “At Dan Ryan Builders, we are never satisfied,” says Charleston Division President Curt Wegner. “We're always looking for ways to improve upon what we do, whether it be neighborhood development, floor plans and/or home features.

Our buyers’ needs and opinions are what matter to us, and providing those buyers true and lasting value is what drives us. “During our annual review of our product offering, we saw the need to offer more ranch plans, first-floor owner suites and really, more space overall. Recognizing this need led to the development of our new Signature collection. From concept to design to building, this new product line has been well-received by our buyers. With our diverse and extensive home collections we are now even better able to find floor plan solutions to fit new home shoppers’ needs. We know our customers will see the value we deliver as soon as they visit a Dan Ryan Builders community.” According to Brian Wagner, General Sales Manager for Dan Ryan Builders, “There are more features included in our homes as compared to those of our competitors. Many of our buyers have gone out and looked at offerings from other builders in the area. Then when they come to Dan Ryan Builders Comfortable Family Room they see the value we provide.”

At Dan Ryan Builders, the Production Department continues to employ industry best practices in order to deliver homes of the highest possible quality. Its building techniques continue to expand and become more exact. “Offering greater efficiency and money savings in the overall cost of running and maintaining your home matters to us,” explains Lee Mackin, Production Manager for Dan Ryan Builders - Charleston. “We've added such features as touch faucets, tankless water heaters, radiant barrier sheathing, specialized installation – and more – to provide better efficiency and savings. We're always looking for home features that will save our homeowners money and reduce the overall cost of operating their homes. This spring, we're excited about introducing HERS testing to all of our homes. HERS is one of the more recognized energy home rating services in the marketplace.” A HERS (Home Energy Rating Systems) energy-rated home is one that has been assigned a savings operating cost rating after

being industry-tested, rated and indexed by an independent third-party inspector. While the well-known Energy Star home designation is simply a yes/no certification, the HERS index rates actual energy efficiency and estimated annual cost savings, allowing one to compare the efficiency of new code-built homes to that of existing homes. The lower the HERS rating of a home, the more energyefficient it is. A new code-built home typically has a HERS rating of 100, so a home with a score of 75 would be 25% more energy-efficient than a characteristic new code-built home. A used home, however, could have a HERS rating of 125 (or higher) and cost an additional 25% or more to operate than a new home that scores 100 or lower on the HERS index. “Our building practices, such as 16″ on-center stud construction, provide further confidence to our customers,” Mackin continues. “The 16″ on-center, versus the 24″ on-center that most builders utilize, means our construction is tighter and sturdier, which is especially important to coastal living, not to mention the energy savings. Our corporate philosophy has always been to provide the best value in homeownership.”

How Do You Choose A Builder? The quality of a new home will in large measure be determined by the skill of the builder who constructs it. That’s why you should shop for a builder as carefully as you shop for the features of a home. Whether you are buying a condo, a townhouse, a house in a subdivision, or a custom built house, you want to know that you are buying a good quality home from a reputable builder. Once you have thought about the type of house you want, how do you find a skilled builder? First make a list of builders who build the type of home you’re looking for in your price range. A housing guide is a good place to start. Looking through the ads and reading the articles can help you find out which builders are active in your area, the neighborhoods in which they build, the types of homes they are building and the prices you can expect to pay. In addition, your local homebuilders association has a list of builders who construct homes in your area. Local real estate agents may also be able to help you in your search. Ask friends and relatives for recommendations. Ask about builders they have dealt with directly, or ask for names of acquaintances who have recently had a good experience with a builder.

THE BUILDER’S REPUTATION Once you have a list of builders, how can you find out about their reputations and the quality of their work? The best way to learn about builders is to visit homes they have built and talk with the owners. When shopping for a new home from particular builders, you should try to talk to people who have purchased homes from the builder. Ask builders on your list for the addresses of their recently built houses, subdivisions, or condos/townhomes. Builders may even be able to provide names of some new home owners who would be willing to talk with you. Don’t be shy about approaching people. Even knock on some doors if you have to. The worst that usually happens is that someone will refuse to talk to you. However, in most cases, a builder’s previous customers will

be quite open with you. If they are unhappy with their homes, they will let you know. And if they are happy, they will want to give the builder more business. Try to talk to at least three of four home owners per neighborhood and do not rely on the view of only one person. Try not to rush through the process of choosing a builder. Set a reasonable timetable for your search, and do not make your decision until you feel comfortable about what you are doing. When you talk to builders and home owners, take along a notebook to record the information you find and your personal impressions about specific builders and homes. Doing so will help you to make comparisons later. Some questions you can ask people include: Are you happy with your home? Did the builder do what was promised in a timely manner? Would you buy another home from this builder? You might also want to check with the Better Business Bureau.

SHOP FOR QUALITY AND VALUE Look at new homes whenever you can. Home shows and open houses sponsored by builders are good opportunities to look at homes. Model homes and homes displayed in these shows are often furnished to give you ideas for using the space. You may also ask a builder to see unfurnished homes. When examining a home, look at the quality of the construction features. Inspect the quality of the cabinetry, carpeting, trim work, and paint. Ask the builder or the builder’s representative a lot of questions. Get as many specifics as possible. If you receive the answers verbally rather than in writing, take notes. Never hesitate to ask a question. What seems like an insignificant question might yield an important answer. Always keep value in mind when shopping. Just because a home is less expensive than another does not mean it is a better value. Likewise, a more expensive home does not automatically assure higher quality. A home is primarily a place to live, but it is also an important investment. Consider the appreciation potential of any home and the possible future influences that location, housing supply and demand, and other market factors will have on the value of your new home. Another important aspect of value is design quality. When you look at a home, determine whether it will suit your lifestyle. Is there enough living space? Are there enough bedrooms and bathrooms? What about storage space? Will you have room to accommodate special interests or hobbies – for example, a large kitchen for casual entertaining, or a room for a home office or exercise room? Think about the amount of upkeep required both indoors and out. Consider also the location of the property. Is it convenient to transportation, shopping, schools or other places of interest to you?

ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT SERVICE When you buy a new home, you are not just buying a structure. Along with the structure comes a package of services, and the quality of those services will have an important effect on your enjoyment of the house. Continued on page 17.

Continued from page 15.

One important criterion for selecting a builder is the warranty provided on the home. Most builders offer some form of written warranty. Many builders back their own warranties on workmanship and materials, typically for one year. Other builders offer warranties backed by insurance companies. Ask to see a copy of the builder’s warranty. Don’t wait to read it until after you move in and a problem arises. If you have any questions about the coverage, ask the builder. Also, find out from each builder what kind of service you can expect after the sale. Typically, a builder makes two service calls during the first year after you move in to repair non-emergency problems covered by your warranty. The first call is usually 30 to 120 days after the move-in, and the second is around the eleventh month – right before any one-year warranties on workmanship and materials expire. For emergencies, the builder should be able to send someone to your home right away. Since virtually every home is going to need at least minor adjustments and repairs during the first year, you should look for a builder who will provide quality service after the sale. The best way to find out what kind of service a builder offers is to ask previous customers. Find out what the builder has recently built in the area near where you are thinking of buying. Then visit one or two of the previous projects and ask the residents about their experiences with their home and the builder. The best time to visit is usually a Saturday morning when people are out doing yard work or chores.

1. Shopping. Are adequate shopping facilities nearby?

SOME OTHER QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT ASK

6. Parking. Are parking and garage facilities adequate?

1. How long has the company been in business?

7. Transportation. Is public transportation frequent and convenient?

2. Whom do you contact for customer service after the sale? Should requests be in writing?

8. Trash and garbage collection. Are trash and garbage collection adequate?

3. What responsibility does the builder assume for the work of subcontractors?

9. Recreation. Are there suitable parks and recreational facilities nearby?

4. Who will be responsible for correcting problems with major appliances?

10. Places of worship. Are places of worship available and convenient?

5. Does the builder belong to the local builders association (affiliated with the National Association of Home Builders)? 6. Does the builder use state-of-the-art energy features? Equipment, insulation, design, and landscaping can all affect a home’s energy efficiency. A new home is one of the biggest and most important purchases you will make in your lifetime. By doing your homework, you will be able to shop for a home with a sense of confidence and the knowledge that will help you to make the right decision.

HOW DO YOU SELECT A NEIGHBORHOOD? Location is one of the most important considerations when shopping for a new home. Weigh the pros and cons of living in the city, the suburbs or the country. Compare neighborhoods as carefully as you compare houses. Consider practical aspects such as time and distance to work, schools and shopping, and the availability of public transportation. Make personal observations, but also consult with your builder, local government, friends, and if possible, people in the neighborhood. As you explore each home, use the following checklist to determine whether the neighborhood suits your needs:

2. Police and fire protection. Are police and fire protection adequate? 3. Medical facilities. Is there a hospital or medical center nearby? 4. Schools and day-care. Are schools in a convenient location? Are convenient day-care facilities available? 5. Traffic. Are the streets quiet enough? Does the speed limit on the streets suit you? If you have children, will they be safe from traffic hazards?

11. Privacy. Do the lot and house offer adequate privacy? 12. Water. Does the community have a reliable source of drinking water with adequate capacity to meet present and future needs? 13. Sanitation facilities. Is the sewer system or septic tank adequate and reliable? Does it meet present and anticipated future needs? 14. Landscaping. Is the land well-drained? Has proper landscaping been done to prevent erosion? Is the landscaping attractive and likely to enhance the value of the home? 15. Taxes. Are the property tax rates reasonable? Is either the tax rate or the value of the house likely to change enough to cause a substantial increase in your tax payment? 16. Assessments. Are there special assessments covering a portion of the lot, street or community development costs that will force you to pay added monthly charges for a specified number of years? 17. Nuisances. Are there nearby sources of noise, smoke, soot, dust, odors or other hazards that will affect the housing environment? Are any development plans under consideration that could substantially change the nature of the community? 18. Flooding. Is flooding from nearby waterways a potential problem?

Pre-Settlement_WalkThru_April2013_Layout 1 3/5/13 5:01 PM Page 18

What Typically Occurs During The Pre-Settlement Walk-Through? Before you go to settlement on a new home, you and your builder will “walk through” the house to conduct a final inspection. The walk-through provides an opportunity for you to spot items that need to be corrected or adjusted. It also allows you to learn how your new home works.

Often, a builder will use the walk-through to inform buyers about: • The operation of the house’s components. • The buyer’s responsibilities for maintenance and upkeep. • Warranty coverage and procedures. • The larger community in which the home is located. When you buy a new appliance or piece of equipment, such as a DVD player, you usually have to read the instructions before you can understand how to use all of the features. With a new house, you will be

18

receiving a stack of instruction booklets all at once. It helps if someone can take the time to show you how to operate all of the kitchen appliances, the heating and cooling systems, the water heater, and other features in the home. Such an orientation is particularly useful considering that when moving into a new home, people often are so busy that they have trouble finding time to carefully read instruction booklets. Learning about maintenance and upkeep responsibilities is very important. Most new homes come with a one-year warranty on workmanship and materials. However, such warranties do not cover problems that develop because of failure to perform required maintenance. Many builders provide a booklet explaining common upkeep responsibilities and how to perform them. Should a warranted problem arise after you move in, the builder is likely to have a set of warranty service procedures to follow. Except in emergencies, requests for service should be in writing. This is not because the builder is trying to be bureaucratic. Rather, it is to ensure that everyone clearly understands the service to be performed. The person receiving a service request

Pre-Settlement_WalkThru_April2013_Layout 1 3/5/13 5:01 PM Page 19

is not likely to be the person performing the work, and you don’t want to rely on word of mouth for transmission of your service order. With respect to inspecting the house, an effective way to handle this is with a checklist. The list should include everything that needs attention, and you and your builder should agree to a timetable for repairs. Many builders schedule two visits during the first year – one near the beginning and the other near the end – to make necessary adjustments and to perform work of a non-emergency nature.

You should not expect a builder to rush out immediately for a problem such as a nail pop in your drywall. Such problems occur because of the natural settling of the house and are best addressed in one visit near the end of the first year. If you have moved to a new home from a nearby area, you probably will not spend much time at the walkthrough talking about the larger community in which the home is located. However, if you are moving to a new community, a builder can often provide a packet of material to help you become acclimated.

WHAT WALK-THROUGH CHECKLIST ITEMS SHOULD YOU INSPECT? OUTSIDE GRADING ❏ Does the ground around the foundation slope away from the house? ❏ Make sure the water does not pond in swales. To check, water the areas with a hose, if possible. ❏ Are there signs of erosion? ❏ Is the shrubbery placed at least 2-3 feet from the foundation? ❏ If the house has a basement, are the basement window wells clean and graveled? ROOF AND GUTTERS Are the shingles flat and tight? Is the flashing securely in place? ❏ Do the gutters, downspouts and splash blocks drain away from the house? ❏

EXTERIOR APPEARANCE Are the windows and doors sealed and protected by weatherstripping? ❏ Are the trim and fittings tight? Are there any cracks? ❏ Does the paint cover the surface and trim smoothly? ❏ Has landscaping been installed according to the terms of your contract? ❏

INSIDE DOORS AND WINDOWS ❏ Are all doors and windows sealed?

Do they open and close easily? Is the glass properly in place? Are any loose or cracked?

FINISHED Is the painting satisfactory in all rooms, closets and stairways? ❏ Did the painters miss any spots? ❏ Are the trim and molding in place? ❏

hundreds with Natural Gas!*

Warmer rooms. Steaming showers. When your home has natural gas, every day can be the ultimate housewarming. Natural gas offers exceptional comfort, convenience and energy savings year round. Faster heating. A natural gas furnace warms a home faster with heat up to 25 degrees warmer than electric heat pumps. Abundant hot water. A natural gas water heater heats water about twice as fast as most electric models, and provides faster recovery and seemingly endless supply. Higher efďŹ ciency. Natural gas furnaces and water heaters are more energy efďŹ cient, economical to operate and durable compared to electric models. Come see Whitney Lake and the energy advantage of natural gas. Visit sceg.com/value or call 1-866-523-8242 to learn more. *Annual energy savings are calculated based on a home with natural gas for heat and water heating.

Welcome to the world of New Construction!_Layout 1 3/5/13 5:03 PM Page 39

Welcome to the World of New Construction! By purchasing a newly built home, you have chosen to receive considerable advantages over the used-home buyer. Because your home is brand-new, you are not inheriting any home problems from the previous owner. Your home is built with all new products and will most likely come with numerous warranties that provide protection for you, the new homeowner, as well as for your pocketbook. There sometimes can be confusion when searching for the perfect new home in a certain price range. For example, an advertisement may state that the company offers homes from the $150s, but you know that there are significantly higher- or lower-priced homes in the neighborhood. The following explanations may help you, as a home buyer, to understand some of the more commonly used terms relating to new construction. Let this be your guide in order to start understanding the exciting and rewarding world of New Construction and all of the benefits that it has to offer to you. And of course, should you have any additional questions, your new home sales consultant is always there to help! • Base Price (Starting Price): The beginning price of the home, with no added upgrades or options other than those specified on the Builder’s Included Features list. When given a range, this includes the beginning price of the lowest-priced floor plan available in the neighborhood to the beginning price of the most expensive floor plan available in the neighborhood. • Lot Premiums: Most floor plan pricing takes into account a certain amount of money toward the price of the land. If you choose an exceptional home site, such as a lot that is wooded, larger than normal, or situated on a corner or next to a marsh, the price of the land becomes more valuable. An additional amount of money can be added to the Base Price in order to accommodate the additional value of the chosen premier lot. • Included Features: Usually neighborhood-specific, these are features that come with your home at no additional cost when you purchase the home at its Base Price. For example: Ceramic tile floors in kitchen and baths, or carpet throughout the rest of the home might be listed as Included Features. • Upgraded Features (“Upgrades”): Features that a Builder will allow you to add to the home for an additional cost. For example, if the neighborhood’s Included Features list specifies that the entire house is carpeted, but you would like hardwood floors in your living room, you may be able to pay an additional fee to cover the cost of this upgraded feature. • Incentives: Depending upon the market and the number of completed or nearly completed houses in inventory, Builders may at times find it necessary to lower prices in order to move that inventory. For example, a reduction of $10,000 off the advertised price of a home may be classified as an Incentive. Sometimes Incentives are offered contingent upon the buyer’s fulfilling some sort of obligation that the Builder has set. For example, $10,000 off the price of the home if the home closes on or before “x” date. Think of an Incentive as the type of special promotion that many retail stores offer from time to time in order to attract buyers and move merchandise. ■ For more information go to www.CharlestonNewHomesGuide.com

One of the most heavily populated counties in South Carolina, Charleston County is home to nearly 100 miles of coastline along the Atlantic Ocean, numerous beaches and rivers, a wide variety of attractive housing options and all of the charm and culture of the Old South in the cities of Charleston and North Charleston. At the heart of the county is the city of Charleston, with its rich architectural heritage, offering residents and tourists scores of restaurants, shopping and art galleries and historic sites. It’s also a major employment center and home to several major educational institutions. North Charleston, where flights come and go from Charleston International Airport, is the area’s transportation hub. Home to the North Charleston Coliseum and the Performing Arts Center, it’s also the place to catch a hockey or basketball game or see a Broadway play.

Before You Buy...._Layout 1 3/5/13 6:56 PM Page 68

Before You Buy... Money matters should be in order before searching for a new home. For aspiring buyers, it’s time to get your financing strategies in order. Below are a few tips on nailing down reliable financing.

FIND FINANCING BEFORE YOU GO HOUSE HUNTING To avoid getting stuck at the closing table without a loan, introduce yourself to a couple of lenders that participate in the traditional Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac secondary lending systems. By arranging to be “pre-qualified” by these lenders prior to your actual search, you will know what you can and cannot afford when it comes to obtaining a mortgage. Armed with the knowledge that you are pre-qualified and for what price range, you can negotiate confidently, because you’ll know that your best offer will stick. 

CHASE YOUR PAPER Gone are the days where low-documentation loans, especially those that rely mainly on the borrower’s word about income and assets, are available. Find, organize and make copies of all the papers that prove what you make and how much money you have: W-2 forms for the past two years; savings and investments account statements for the past several quarters, and pay stubs for the past month.

EXPECT TO PUT IN EQUITY 100 percent financing is virtually unheard of nowadays; you need to put money down. For example, in a 95 percent loan to value, you can expect to put down at least 5 percent. Check your credit score before turning in your loan application – your score can affect your minimum down payment. A score of 680 used to be good enough, but now an applicant typically needs at least a 720. One great place to check your credit score is annualcreditreport.com.

BUDGET APPROPRIATELY Reconcile your expectations with your budget before you launch into a jammed schedule of open houses and house tours. Calculate what you can afford, assuming you opt for a traditional fixed-rate, 30-year mortgage. Mortgage Chart is available in The Greater Charleston New Homes Guide Mortgage Section.

78

Your goal is to gauge affordability based on the highest monthly payment you’d have to make – namely its standard monthly payment, which won’t change for the length of the loan (other than its property tax & insurance components) – and not on artificially low adjustable rate teasers offered by the few aggressive lenders left in the market. Choose a fixed interest rate to give you a stable, predictable house payment. People who chose other types of rate structures in the past several years are largely the homeowners who are now scrambling to refinance, sell or stave off foreclosure.

DO YOUR HOMEWORK If you’re a first-time buyer, look for assistance, even if you don’t think you need it. Buying a home can be a painless procedure if you know exactly what you are doing. On the other hand, a mistake can be costly and can stay with you for a very long time. Look for local organizations that offer classes on the basics of buying a home. It’s worthwhile to attend the classes, if for no other reason than to learn the language of the acronym-filled process, so you can speak the same abbreviated language as your lending officer does. That way you can talk the talk and walk the walk. ■

Check Your Credit Purchasing a home may be the largest financial transaction you will make during your lifetime. And when applying for your mortgage, lenders will scrutinize your credit report. While problems with your credit may not keep you from getting a homes, it could make the process more complicated and prevent you from getting the best loan rate. When considering you for a loan, lenders will look for late payments, overextension, liens, wage garnishments and bankruptcy. Your credit information will be the basis of your mortgage credit score, a statistical analysis that helps lenders determine how much of a risk they’re taking by loaning you the money to purchase your home. Ideally, before you start shopping for a new home you should check your credit reports with all three major credit bureaus – Equifax (1-800-685-1111, www.equifax.com), TransUnion (1-800-916-8800, www.transunion.com) and Experian (formerly TRW; 1-888-397-3742, www.experian.com). Your credit file generally contains three years of information; no adverse information, with the exception of bankruptcy, can be kept on file for more than seven years. Even if you’ve had no credit problems in the past, it’s best to check. Sometimes errors can exist without your knowledge. In addition, it may be helpful to obtain your FICO scores, the mathematical scoring system that identifies your level of future credit risk by comparing the information contained in your credit reports with those of other borrowers. Essentially the higher the score, the lower the risk – and the better percentage rate you’ll receive on your loan. By far the easiest way to obtain your FICO score is to go to www.myfico.com, and, for a nominal fee the company will supply your FICO score, plus your Equifax credit report.

IF YOU FIND A CREDIT PROBLEM Nonprofit credit counseling agencies warn consumers to beware of credit repair organizations that promise to repair negative reports. Only time and good track record can repair negative credit reports. You can tell the difference between legitimate and non-legitimate services by the fees they charge and the promises they make, according to the nonprofit National Center for Financial Education in San Diego, CA. Nonprofit services charge minimal fees, usually less than $25, and they will work with the client to re-establish credit. Questionable organizations generally charge much higher fees, and they may promise to remove such records as bankruptcies and liens from a negative report. Accurate information, however, cannot legally be removed from a credit report. Federal law mandates the time periods that accurate negative information must remain on a report. You can, however, correct mistakes on your report. For valid problems, you can provide a written explanation to the mortgage lender explaining what caused the delinquency and what steps were taken to resolve the problems. If your payments have been made on time for a year or more, your credit will probably by satisfactory, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association of America. To correct errors, call or write the credit bureau and explain the error. The bureau will check with the source of the information and send you an update. The process can take 30-days, according to Experian, one of the nation’s largest credit reporting agencies. If you still disagree with the information you can add a statement to your credit report.

HOW MUCH HOUSE CAN YOU AFFORD? When shopping for a home, it’s important to know exactly how much you can afford each month in mortgage payments. You’ll also have to cover utilities, taxes, insurance and home-repair and maintenance expenses – plus still have the funds to cover other regular expenses, food, etc. On top of all this, you’ll want to make sure to reserve money for an earnest payment, closing costs, moving expenses and the inevitable cost of improving, decorating or furnishing your new home. Taking a hard look at your finances now can save you from a difficult position of being “house-poor,” in other words, having monthly mortgage and home-related expenses that are so high you have little or no money to put toward other everyday expenses or idulgences.

GATHERING FINANCIAL DATA • Here’s a basic list of documentation needed to get the process started: • W-2 forms for the past two to three years • Copies of tax returns for the past two to three years • One month’s worth of pay stubs • Three month’s worth of bank statements, and other financial records, such as IRAs,401(k)s, stock certificates and records of other financial assets Mortgage companies may ask for additional information. For instance, self employed home buyers will need to have three years of business records and tax returns. Other papers that may be requested include divorce papers. If you have had a bankruptcy, you’ll need documentation of the bankruptcy, proceedings and a letter explaining the circumstances surrounding the bankruptcy. Finally, if you’ve had legal judgments against you, you’ll want to provide a copy of the recorded satisfaction of judgment. If you’re involved in any lawsuits, you’ll need documentation to explain the circumstances.

GET PRE-QUALIFIED, OR BETTER YET, PRE-APPROVED If you are pre-qualified, that means lenders have looked at your financial situation and determined that, based on your income, assets, past credit history and liabilities, you should qualify for a loan. Lenders will also give you a ballpark figure to let you know approximately how much of a mortgage you can afford. If you’re pre-approved, it means the lender has taken things a step further by committing to provide you with a loan. You can obtain your pre-approval letter or certificate by consulting mortgage brokers and direct lenders, such as banks, and asking to be pre-approved for a maximum mortgage. Becoming pre-approved generally gives you an advantage in the home-buying market because it gives the seller some assurance that the sale will go through.

HOW TO SHOP FOR A MORTGAGE When you’re shopping for a home loan, you need to call a lot of mortgage companies, banks and savings & loans to compare interest rates and services. You need to ask a lot of questions. Here are just a few questions you need to consider in asking… Questions: I’m buying a house and I’m looking for a fixed-interest rate loan/ adjustable-rate loan. I’m planning to make a down payment of _______ percent. The house is prices at $___________, and I will need a loan of $____________. Based on today’s rates, what will my interest rate and discount points be if I apply for a loan today and lock in the rate for 60-days? Notes: Rates and points can change daily. That’s why it is important to get rate quotes from different mortgage companies on the same day. It is also important to compare the companies on an equal basis, which is the reason for requesting a rate lock for 60-days. A written rate lock is a promise that you can have that interest rate for a specified period of time. If you need a longer lock-in period, ask what is available. The longer the lock-in, the higher the discount points will be. One discount point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. Question: What is your origination fee and/or broker fee? Notes: The origination fee is paid to a lender for processing the loan application. Typically it is 1 percent of the loan amount. Question: If I decide to lock my loan at application today, will you provide me with a written lock-in agreement that will confirm the interest rate, discount points, the origination fee and the expiration date of the lock-in? Note: Insist for a written lock-in agreement. Don’t rely on verbal locks. Question: When I apply for a loan, will you provide me with a good faith estimate outlining all of my loan settlement costs before I pay for an appraisal and credit report? Notes: Although Federal law requires the lender to provide a good faith estimate within three business days after the receipt of an application, you should try to get one at application before you pay for your appraisal and credit report. Questions: I understand that you will need a credit report and a property appraisal after I have applied for the loan. How long do you estimate it will take your company to make a final loan decision from the day of application?
