MORTGAGE FAQ & QUICK LINKS
I know my mortgage rate. Now what?
Your next steps after you’ve calculated your approximate mortgage costs are:
- contact a real estate agent that can help you find properties in your budget.
- get pre-approved for your mortgage.
What can I actually afford?
Most professionals recommend keeping your mortgage payment to 25% or less of your income.
How do I pick a real estate agent?
Your ideal real estate agent will:
- know the area that you want to live
- have experience with either commercial, residential, or investment properties
- be available to help you through the process
My credit is bad. Will that affect my mortgage?
A bad credit score will not prevent you from getting a mortgage. There are many lenders that cater to people with low or no credit scores. Your credit will likely affect your interest rate, the length of the mortgage, a higher down payment, and other factors.
How much will my down payment be?
Common practice is to put down at least 10% of your home’s value but this will require that you pay PMI (private mortgage insurance). If you put up 20% then you will save money on the long run by avoiding the cost of the PMI.
