Get Pre-Approved to Establish a Budget with a Local Lender
Before you go look at homes, you need to get pre-approved. You need to know if you qualify for a loan program, what you can afford, how much you need for a down payment and what your monthly payment is going to be.
Affordability can be determined in two ways. A maximum monthly payment allowed or a monthly payment amount that you the buyer feel comfortable with each month. Either way, establishing a budget first will help contribute to a more successful home search.
We believe selecting a local lender can be beneficial too. Being able to meet in person to discuss loan options, provide asset and income documents and work fast to avoid surprises. A local lender has a reputation to maintain in order to continue to service the community. And it's nice to have your local lender at closing in case any questions arise.

Are you wanting to buy a home but you don’t have a lot of money saved for a down payment?
You don’t need 20% down to buy a home.
A conventional 30 year fixed requires as little as 3-5% down.
FHA loan only requires 3.5% down and allows for less than stellar credit.
WHEDA loan requires 3% down but you can piggyback a WHEDA second loan called Easy Close to lower or completely cover your down payment.
VA and USDA offer 0% down loans but come with some additional qualifying requirements in order to participate.
Get pre-approved for FREE with a local lender and discuss these options in greater detail to see which one is best for you and your situation. Also make sure to ask if they have any special in-house loans or down payment assistance programs.
The Huemmer Home Team has the KEYS to your home buying success. Let’s get you started today.
