The benefits of a preapproval for Flower Mound Texas Home Loans.

 

 

 Many consumers are not educated on the proper way to go about buying a home. No question, this is a big decision, and one that can be either immensely stressful- or immensely enjoyable- depending on how you go about the home buying process of Flower Mound Texas Home Loans and the surrounding areas. It is essential that you take the proper steps to keep your self educated on the initial investment, the buying power, and to take some time to think about your lifestyle choices. Each of these will be discussed in this article. 

 

 Education 

 

 The proper way to go about buying a home in Flower Mound, Texas begins with getting preapproved for your home loan. Take note that we didn't say anything about getting pre-qualified because in today's mortgage industry it is meaningless. You should choose a mortgage banker that offers no cost preapprovals and homebuyer counseling. During the course of this process, you will provide two years of tax returns, one month's full paystubs from recent job, and two months of all your liquid assets accounting statements that include-checking, savings, stocks, 401K' and IRA's so that you can authorize your mortgage lender to pull your credit report. It is important to note you will need to provide all pages of the bank statements, and will need to explain (source- as in prove up where money for deposits came from that went into your liquid asset accounts). The purpose of your mortgage banker analyzing this data is to establish the following:  1. How much home you can afford. 2. What type of initial investment and loan structure is best for your unique needs and 3.What level of house payment you qualify for and are comfortable with paying each month. 

 

 Initial Investment 

 

 There are many different types of loan programs available in the mortgage markets ranging from niche 100% financing which include VA and USDA loans, to FHA loans (with 3.5% down payment), to Conventional loans that begin with 5% down payment options. Depending on how the loan and preapproval is structured- you should also have your mortgage banker estimate the remaining part of your initial investment, taking into consideration closing costs, taxes and insurance on your new home purchase, and whether there are any seller contributions or lender contributions involved. This is one reason why you should consult with an experienced mortgage professional that can help you decide what the best loan program is for that fits your needs. 

 

 Upon getting pre-approved and after having your mortgage counseling session, you should know what the price range you are must comfortable with is. This will give you a "head start" on your Flower Mound Texas Home Loans and the surrounding area that gives you the "buying power of a cash buyer". Have your mortgage lender send a pre-approval letter that matches up with the offer you just submitted so that the seller knows to get you pre-approved for inspections, an appraisal, and for title work to come back clean. You will also have much less stress- as you will not be wondering if you can qualify or if something shows up on your credit report that may cause a delay or for you to be turned down. 

 

 Lifestyle Choices 

 

 You can't underestimate your full budget amount for your house payment and all of the other monthly obligations. You have numerous options. If you are a younger professional that is just getting started in your career, it is important that you buy in the upper level of the qualifying range for your home purchase knowing that your discretionary income is on the way. If you are on a flatter income, you want to choose what level of discretionary income you want to reserve for new cars, for you to travel, for you to eat out, and for money to furnish and update your home. It is essential to consider what the final purchase that are you comfortable with to enhance your lifestyle after purchasing your new home.
