We play a significant role in serving America’s home ownership needs. In this process, we aspire to meet and exceed your expectations by delivering specialized services to help you find the right loan that meets your specific needs. We strongly believe, that this kind of service should be the standard for excellence in the mortgage industry.
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.
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.
Obligations under the HECM for Purchase are the same as the traditional HECM reverse mortgage. You must continue payments for property taxes, homeowner’s insurance, any homeowner’s association fees, and the cost for basic maintenances of the home, in order to avoid defaulting on the loan.
There are some aspects of the HECM for Purchase that differ from the traditional HECM reverse mortgage. Because reverse mortgages are meant to help seniors age in place, you must move into the new home within 60 days after closing, and the new home must become your primary residence.
