housekeys_voronin_450realtor.com - Having your offer accepted feels great—but for most home buyers, it’s just the beginning. There is still a lot more to be done before you’re over the front threshold. Here’s a rundown of what comes next.

1. Apply for a loan

Unless you’re paying in cash, you’ll need to apply for a mortgage loan (if you’re already pre-approved, good for you). If you’re not pre-approved, meet with at least two or three lenders and compare their loan options. Be prepared to ask questions, and be completely open with the lenders about your finances.

greenhouse_buchachon_450realtor.com - In many parts of the country , the busy spring home-buying season is already underway—March typically ushers in a significant increase in home searches online. This year, even more people than last year are jumping into the search process as a result of improving financial circumstances, like a new job, or life events, like a new baby.

bank__olegdoroshin_450zillow.com - The good news about shopping for mortgages is that you have lots of options. Here’s a look at one of the many questions you’ll have to consider: Is an adjustable rate or fixed rate mortgage best for you?

Many home buyers focus on finding the lowest mortgage rate at the time they’re buying their home, and a five-year adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) often looks quite appealing to them. But it’s important to understand that an ARM rate adjusts at the end of the initial term.

bank__olegdoroshin_450realtor.com - Just when we think we have the necessary funds to make even the minimum 3% down payment, we’re slapped with another round of expenses: closing costs. 

Closing costs typically amount to 3% to 6% of the purchase price. Why the broad range?Taxes. Buying a house means paying taxes and sometimes transfer fees upfront, at the closing. While there are settlement costs that go to your attorney, title insurance company, and lender, the biggest beneficiary is the government—city, county, and state.
