Common homebuying questions

While many people think you can't buy a home without 20% down payment, many mortgage options allow for lower or even no down payment. A home mortgage consultant can help you determine what works best for your finances and what programs you may qualify for.

Closing costs typically include your down payment and a variety of fees, including an application fee, attorney fee, and origination fee. Those charges can vary from provider to provider and can depend on how your loan is set up.

If you're buying a home, it's highly recommended that you obtain a property inspection and make your purchase offer contingent on the findings of the inspection.

There is a difference between a property inspection and an appraisal. An appraisal is required by most mortgage lenders in order to support the value of the real estate and the terms of the mortgage agreement.
