Are you thinking about taking the steps to purchase a home? This is an exciting time and with our help your experience will be enjoyable. Buying a home is often the largest purchase you will make, so it is vital to be well prepared. Take the time to browse our website to learn about different loan programs, what they mean to you and how it will affect the home buying process. We are happy to walk you through it!
This question is the first step toward finding the right home. By determining a price range that meets lending guidelines you will save yourself a lot of time.
Some upfront costs include:
Down payment: Typically this can range between 3 – 25% of the cost of the home. The greater the amount that is put down, the lower your monthly mortgage payment will be and you will also have more equity in the property. Less than 20% down in some cases can mean that mortgage insurance may be required, which will increase your monthly cost.
Closing Costs: Typically range from 2-6% of the loan amount depending on factors such as where you are located and the amount of the loan that will be financed.
Ongoing Costs: Housing costs can include Monthly Mortgage Payment, Homeowners Insurance, Mortgage Insurance, Flood Insurance (If applicable), Property Taxes (If applicable), Utilities, and Maintenance.
Before you begin looking for your home you should see if you are financially able to get a mortgage. You can do this by contacting one of our mortgage advisors. If you are currently working with a real estate agent they will appreciate the steps you have taken to get pre-qualified, as it lets them know you are a serious buyer.

You worked hard. Now let your biggest asset work for you.
With a reverse mortgage you can eliminate monthly payments and still own your home. You have probably heard a lot of myths about them including not retaining ownership of your home. This is certainly not true. You retain the title and ownership during the life of your loan, and you can sell it at any time. You are required to keep paying your property taxes and homeowners insurance as well as keep up with maintenance on the home.
You can apply for a reverse mortgage even if you currently have a mortgage loan with a balance. We take your date of birth along with the home value versus the current loan balance to see how and if you qualify. In some cases, you may also qualify for additional cash out while also eliminating the monthly payment. The cash out is considered tax free but, since we are mortgage professionals and not financial advisors or CPA’s it is best to consult with the appropriate parties if the cash out portion is something that concerns you.
Unlike forward mortgages, a reverse loan can be a little more complicated which is why it is a good idea to find a broker with experience. We are confident we can get your reverse loan done.
