There is no simple formula to determine the type of mortgage that is best for you. This choice depends on a number of factors, including your current financial picture and how long you intend to keep your house. Cherry Creek Mortgage can help you evaluate your choices and help you make the most appropriate decision.
The amount that you can borrow will depend upon your employment history, credit history, current savings and debts, and the amount of down payment you are able to make. You may also be able to take advantage of special loan programs for first time buyers. Give us a call, and we can help you determine exactly how much you can afford.
All new construction may require a Certificate of Occupancy (CO) once the home has been inspected and it’s determined to be move-in ready. FHA requires lenders to wait until the CO is issued before a loan application can be taken. The first step is to get a Pre-Approval letter from us prior to going into contract with the builder. Please make sure to get us in touch with the builder so we can verify everything needed in the contract.
For most homeowners, the monthly mortgage payments include three separate parts:
Principal: Repayment on the amount borrowed
Interest: Payment to the lender for the amount borrowed
Taxes & Insurance: Monthly payments are normally made into a special escrow account for items like mortgage insurance, hazard insurance, and property taxes. This feature is sometimes optional, in which case the fees will be paid by you directly to the County Tax Assessor and property insurance company.
You are ready to buy a home! After you receive your pre-approval, it’s very important to inform us of any changes to your financial picture or credit history as this could impact the amount or type of loan for which you’ll qualify once your loan is fully underwritten.
