Question by pd39: Questions about a FHA loan, here Mortgages, order and first time buyers?
I will be a first time home buyer, seek I am looking in NJ, now living in NY. I take home, after taxes about 8k a month, my wife also brings in a few thousand a month. We have great credit and no outstanding bills except a few student loans. To find something in the area we want, we will have to spent about 700k or so. I have read that with a FHA loan you have to put down 3.5 % as compared to 20% with a regular mortgage. If you take out a FHA mortgage and put down the 3.5 % do you still have to pay PMI with a FHA ? Also, where should I go for a mortgage, I hear many bad things about brokers, And, the last thing, what am I looking at in fees and closing costs for this range ?

You pay PMI and you pay all closing costs. The banks are on the website – fha.gov.

You generally need 2 years of stable work history. If you had another job right before that for about the same money, approved that would count.

  1. Call around and see if you can get find a broker in your area that deals with no doc mortgages (really it means: low document mortgages).

    Unless the income is REALLY guaranteed (like it’s a contract they can break or terminate), you are in the same field as you were before, and you have fairly high commissions, it’s probably not possible to include you now.

    No doc mortgages come with increased fees and a higher interest rate.

  2. The question is do you have proof that you were employed prior to your current employment? If you have third party proof that you were employed and is in the same career field then you would not have a problem about being pre-approved for a mortgage loan.

    Buying a house is a step by step process, this is the first step you should take in order to purchase a house. The rest of the steps will fall in place, no matter the type of property you are purchasing.

    In order to find out the type of loan programs you are qualified for you will have to fill out a loan application, with a mortgage broker, you can find one in your local telephone book.

    Make sure this mortgage broker or mortgage banker is able to do government loans such as USDA, FHA and VA loans if you qualify for one. With a VA mortgage loan you are not required to have a down payment, this will save you on closing cost.

    He will fill out this application, which takes awhile so grab your favorite beverage and sit down. Once you have completed the application, he will run your credit report which will have your credit scores. These credit scores will determine your interest rate.

    The amount of your monthly debt payments you are required to pay as per your credit report and the amount of mortgage you can take on based on your income will determine the amount of house you will be able to purchase.

    When you speak with the mortgage broker you will need the following documents to complete the loan application, there will be others, but this will get you started.

    #1 One month of pay stubs for each person that will be on the mortgage.

    #2 Six months bank statements from each bank in which you bank as well as statements from any 401K from you place of employment.

    #3 Two years of federal income tax along with the W-2 that match.

    Once he has all that he need to do he can then issue you a pre-approval letter so you can purchase a home. In this pre-approval letter will be the amount of house you are qualified to purchased.

    Once he gives you this pre-approval you may now find a real estate agent to find yourself a home or he might have a referral.

    Now make sure before you get your pre-approval you and your mortgage broker go over all your options as to the mortgage programs you qualify for, the interest rate, monthly payments.

    If you are getting a FHA, fixed rate, two loans to eliminate PMI like an 80/20 or one loan, if you are qualified for and approved for a 100% loan.

    You should select the loan that best suit your financial condition at the time. That could be an adjustable rate loan. It could be a fixed rate loan for 5 or 10 years and then adjust. Some adjustable rate mortgages only adjust once.

    Make sure your mortgage broker explain all your options so you may make an intelligent decision.

    What might be good for one person might not be good for you, in other words just because your friends and all your real estate buddies are telling you about the great fixed rate they got, your financial situation might call for something else.

    So select the best option for you and your financial situation.

    You should also get a Good Faith Estimate (GFE) which will indicate the cost you will have to pay for getting this loan. It will also indicate the amount of your down payment.

    Once you have found a home the real estate agent will then prepare a contract for you and the seller to sign. Your mortgage broker will now order an appraisal to show proof of the property value.

    The mortgage broker might ask for additional information or documentation, don’t get all up tight this is normal, just supply the information or find the documents needed.

    After the appraisal has been completed you will be called by your mortgage broker to sign your loan docs so you can take possession of your new home.

    Before signing any loan docs make sure they say exactly what you and your mortgage broker went over when you decided on what mortgage program was best for you.

    I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck
