4 Lending Misconceptions Keeping You
From Buying Your Dream Home
Are you a renter who is looking to purchase a home of your own? If so, you’ve come to the right place!
By now, you know we only partner with the best. Our preferred lender, [COMPANY], makes buyers dreams come true by meeting with them in person and finding out what is the best fit for them. They are the best independent mortgage lender in America and have a great spread of loan programs, low interest rates, and a fantastic team to help fulfill your loan in the easiest possible way.
Many of our clients have said to us that they wish they would have made their purchase years ago, instead of renting for a long period of time. With interest rates as low as they are, we want to encourage all the renters out there to buy now! Low rates mean you have more spending power as a buyer, which is perfect for first-time home buyers looking for the right fit.
Many potential home buyers are waiting until they save up for a large down payment to avoid paying Private Mortgage Insurance. The fact is, you don’t need to have 20% down to buy. There are many great low down payment packages out there, such as FHA loans (3.5% down) or conventional loans with as little as 3% down. One of the most popular packages is a 5% down conventional loan with no mortgage insurance!
Nowadays, it’s very common for people to monitor their credit. Many people don’t want their credit pulled until they are absolutely ready to buy because they fear their score is going to be impacted. This is another misconception – there is no set formula detailing how much your score is impacted by being pulled. If you have pretty good credit as it is, the impact of having a lender take a look at it is going to be minuscule because you’ve already proven you can manage your own credit risk. If your credit isn’t great, give [COMPANY] call and they can help you manage it a bit better.
