When you’re buying a house, there is a ton of paperwork and terminology thrown at you.
Today we’re going to decipher and explain all the essentials you need to know to get a great deal on your mortgage!
Even if you’re excited and ready to buy a house, it can still be stressful.
Last week I mentioned that my mom is moving into the Raleigh area after getting a job offer.
She’s getting all that paperwork done for work and keeping her current home in tiptop shape since it’s on the market to sell.
And whenever she’s in town to take care of her work stuff, we’re also driving around looking at places and neighborhoods.
Being with her reminds me of our own house hunt and I remember how at times things seemed overwhelming.
Buying a home is a huge purchase and while you’re trying to make sure it’s the right fit for you, you’re also sorting through all this paperwork.
When you’re getting a mortgage, your lender is combing through your finances and it feels like they request every scrap of information they can get.
And then when you do find a home, you make the offer – hopefully they accept. You have a home inspection, have the house appraised, and get paperwork like title insurance done.
It’s a lot.
And the first time around, we knew we paid a fair price, but we were a little lost.
The second time, though, we felt confident about buying the house.
One part that made a huge difference for us was getting our loan officer to walk us through.
Having your loan officer in your corner, along with a great agent makes the process enjoyable and rewarding.
We’re so grateful to have had that.
And I want you to feel the same way.
So if you’re in the market to buy or you know in the future you’d want to buy a home, I think you’ll enjoy this episode.
