Questions to keep in mind during the homebuying process.
Click here to use our loan calculators and find out how much home you can afford. As a general rule of thumb, the purchase price of your home should not be higher than three times your annual household income.
Determining how many bedrooms, how big of a backyard and how much space you need are a few things to consider before beginning your home search.
What kind of home do you want to buy?
There are many types of homes – a home in a neighborhood, a townhome in a development, a condo in a building, and many more. Knowing the type of home you want to buy is important so you can understand the additional fees you may incur. Homes in neighborhoods could have Homeowners Association dues, which could be a costly expense.
What can’t I buy with Founders First Time Homebuyer Program?
Our First Time Homebuyer Program does not include mobile homes or building a custom home. We do have products available for these types of homes and a Mortgage Loan Officer will be glad to help you find the right product for you. To speak with a Mortgage Loan Officer call 1-800-845-1614.
What other responsibilities come with home ownership?
As a homeowner, you are responsible for all aspects of that home – the home itself, the yard or land the home is on, and all the things that make the home function. This includes appliances, heating and cooling units and more. It’s always a good idea to have extra money in savings and available in case one of these expensive items needs to be repaired or replaced.
Financial Benefits of Owning a Home.
You can build equity in your home and increase your overall financial assets if your property value increases.
You may be able to deduct mortgage interest and property taxes for tax benefits. Consult with your tax advisor regarding tax deductibility.
You can build your credit by making your mortgage payments on time.
Think you're ready to buy?
Make sure you are financially prepared.
Saving for a down payment for buying a house can take years, but remember the higher your down payment is, the less you will need to finance. Founders First Time Homebuyer Program only requires the applicant has a minimum of $1,000.00 in the transaction. This minimum includes closing costs, prepaids or a down payment.
Review your current financial bills and debts.
While securing your mortgage loan, it’s a good idea to pay outstanding bills and not take out any new debt.
Even if you apply for your Mortgage Loan online, a Mortgage Loan Officer will reach out to you regarding the details of your request and to review your credit report.
