Q: Why is it so important to go to a mortgage company before you go house shopping?

A: It’s vital that you know what your budget is before you look. (If you look in the 500 range and find you need to be in the 400 range, you’re not going to like anything that you see) Also, many listing agents require a pre qual letter before the showing and you can’t submit an offer without one.

Q: Why is it so important to use one agent?

A: You choose an agent based on experience, expertise and market knowledge. That agent’s job is to look out for your best interests. They must get to know your need and wants thoroughly

Q: How do you use a home inspection and what is the importance of one?

A: I licensed home inspector knows building codes and what to look for that we can’t see. What it is not is a laundry list for repairs. That request is determined by the agent and buyer as to what is most important to them. (Obviously safety items come first

Q: How do I know that the price that I’m paying is fair?

A: That is your agent’s job. The will show you a Comparative Market Analysis or C.M.A. showing the sales of other comparable properties in the area. They must be comparable as to condition, age and amenities.

Q: How do I choose an appraiser?

A: You don’t and your agent and lender don’t. In 2008 the federal mortgage laws changed regarding appraisals. Now your bank or mortgage company has a computer list of approved appraisers. With each contract the computer randomly chooses an appraiser from that list. The lender can’t communicate with that appraiser except to order the appraisal and send him or her the contract.

Q: What does a mortgage company base my income on?

A: They use verified tax returns and W-2s or 1099’s, as well as bank statements. If you’re a 1099, then you must have a track record of consistent income. (Usually 2 years). They will look at your debt to income ratio and decide from there. There are other factors that count too, like downpayment, loan to value and credit score.
