Dream homes are exciting; financing them isn’t. For that reason, California West Communities presents the following frequently asked questions regarding the purchase of one of their Vista new homes; specifically, those located at the Madison Lane community. However, they can be helpful for buyers everywhere. Take a look:
Q: How do I know how much I can qualify for?
A: Our preferred lender, Pacific Sun Mortgage, will walk you through the pre-qualification process prior to your purchase to help you determine the amount of a mortgage loan that matches your income, credit, monthly expenses and down payment ability. These are the factors that determine your mortgage loan amount.
Q: How do I determine which mortgage and loan program is best for me?
A: The two most common loan types are fixed rate mortgages (where the mortgage rate remains the same over time) and adjustable rate mortgages (where the mortgage features a low start rate, but raises that rate significantly over time). Pacific Sun Mortgage will explain the pros and cons of each during your consultation sessions.
Q: How much do I need to put down?
A: There are loan programs that require smaller down payments, such as FHA and VA financing; but normally, a down payment of less than 20% will require mortgage insurance to be added to your monthly mortgage payment.
Q: After signing documents, what is the next step?
A: Now, it’s time to ensure your application is complete. Your Pacific Sun Mortgage loan officer will review the application and make the final step as seamless as possible.
