Kentucky Home Buyer Tips for a Smooth Closing after loan pre-approvalToo Tips For Home Buyers

Tip #1: Things to Avoid Before Buying a Your First Home in Kentucky!!!

 

 

 

Here are some things to avoid during the Kentucky First Time home buying process to assure your transaction goes smoothly:

-Don’t Make an Expensive Purchase

It’s best to avoid making major purchases like furniture, cars, appliances, electronic equipment, jewelry, or vacations until after the closing. Financing furniture with a credit card could jeopardize your credit worthiness during the time it means the most. Using cash to purchase big items can also create a problem because many banks take into consideration your cash reserve when approving your mortgage.

-Don’t Get a New Job

Lenders like to see a consistent job history. Generally, changing jobs will not affect your ability to qualify for a mortgage loan-especially if you are going to be making more money. But for some people, getting a new job during the loan approval process could raise some concern and affect your application.

-Don’t Switch Banks or Move Money Around

As your lender reviews your loan package, you will be asked to provide bank statements for the last two or three months on your checking accounts, savings accounts, money market funds and other liquid assets. To eliminate potential fraud, most loans require a thorough paper trail to document the source of all funds. Changing banks or transferring money to another account could make it difficult for the lender to document your funds.

-Don’t Disregard Your Lenders Requirements

You may have been pre-approved for the loan but your work with the lender is far from over. Your lender will need copies of your bank statements, W2s and other paperwork. It is up to you to get it to him or her as soon as possible. Failure to submit certain qualifying documents could cause you to lose your loan and the financing you need to buy your home.

Sincerely, 

We see a bunch of clients come in that could have saved themselves some headaches if they would’ve followed these tips for buying a home.

 

 

  1. Do NOT purchase a new vehicle. (If you can help it)
    1. You may be just graduating college or getting that well deserved promotion at work and be tempted to treat yourself to that shiny new vehicle. If at all possible, fight that urge! When we are calculating your debt-to-income ratio, that car payment can possibly take away the purchasing power that you wished you had. Instead of a $150,000 house, you’re now looking at an $80,000 home.
  2. Do NOT change jobs or how you’re paid.
    1. The main reason we try to not have people change jobs is not because of the history but the possibility of the way that you were and are paid now. If you were salaried 6 months ago and now you are paid a smaller salary but with commissions, there is a good possibility we won’t be able to count those commissions since you haven’t received them for two years. So if a job opportunity arises or HR is possibly promoting you to a new pay system, weigh the costs of maybe not being able to buy a home.
  3. Do NOT deposit cash or large untraceable deposits.
    1. The old saying used to be “cash is king”. Some people still think that they can bring their mattress money or rainy day funds to closing and unfortunately that is not the case anymore. When we are going through the loan process and see a large deposit that isn’t an auto deposit from payroll, things can get a little dicey. Ever since the mortgage crisis in 2008 and 2009, the government makes us “source” funds like that. It’s their way of making sure that there isn’t possible money laundering or fraud happening. If you sell a vehicle or an item for cash, please document it as clearly as possible.
  4. Listen to your loan officer
    1. This is an extremely easy one but you’d be surprised how many times people don’t follow this. An analogy that Don tells his clients is to think of buying a home like a maze. This is especially true with all the regulations and rules they have put in place since the mortgage crisis. You, the borrower, are trying to get to the end of the maze and get into the home. We as loan officers have a better view point of the maze and can help guide you through it. If you don’t trust us and let us guide you, it can take a lot longer to get into the home or possibly do something that makes it to where you can’t get a home at all.

All Kentucky Housing first mortgage loans are for a 30-year term at a fixed rate of interest. The home you purchase through Kentucky Housing must be the only residential property you own and you must occupy the home as your principal residence while the loan debt is still outstanding. To qualify, you must meet KHC’s regular income guidelines, make a down payment or qualify for down payment assistance, be a US citizen or legal alien and have an acceptable credit history. Some Kentucky Housing loans are subject to a federal recapture tax. Recapture is a federal income tax that the borrowers may have to pay if they have considerable growth in their income and they sell or transfer their KHC-financed home within 9 years. However, KHC has implemented a Recapture Tax Guarantee Program for all loans that close after October 1, 2006. The Recapture Tax Guarantee Program will reimburse homeowners if they are subject to pay the Federal Recapture Tax on their KHC mortgage loan upon the sale of their home.

Conventional Insured by approved mortgage insurance company. Minimum credit score of 660 or better. Quick turnaround time, 20 percent down payment and no up-front or monthly mortgage insurance.

FHA Insured by the Federal Housing Administration. Down payments as little as 3.5 percent. Can use DAP for 3.5 percent down payment requirement. Upfront and monthly mortgage insurance. Minimum credit score of 640.

VA Guaranteed by the Veterans Administration for qualified military veterans. No down payment if the property appraises for the sale price or greater. Credit underwriting is flexible. Minimum credit score of 620. No monthly mortgage insurance payments.

RHS Guaranteed by Rural Housing Services (RHS). Home must be located in a rural area as defined by RHS. No down payment if the property appraises for the sale price or greater. Minimum credit score of 640. No monthly mortgage insurance payments.

Mortgage Credit Certificates (MCC) A Mortgage Credit Certificates (MCC) reduces the amount of federal income tax you pay, giving you more available income to qualify for a mortgage loan. MCCs are NOT mortgages. They are tax credits that put extra cash in your pocket each month, so you can more easily afford a house payment. That means fewer tax dollars will be withheld from your regular paycheck, increasing your take-home pay. The federal government allows every homeowner an

income tax deduction

for all the interest paid each year on a mortgage loan. But an MCC gives you a tax credit of 25 percent (not to exceed $2,000). You can still deduct the remaining 75 percent interest on your income taxes. A tax credit is not the same as a tax deduction. A tax deduction reduces the portion of your income that is taxed, so you pay less. A tax credit is a direct, dollar for dollar reduction in the total tax you owe. The MCC is effective for the life of the loan as long as you live in the home. If you sell your home in the first nine years of ownership, you may be subject to Federal Recapture Tax.

Special First Mortgage Loan Programs New Construction Program for Single-Parent, Disabled and Elderly Households offers loans for newly constructed houses at interest rates from 1 to 6 percent. These limited funds are available, usually in July, on a first-come, first-served basis. Guidelines Interest rate determined by the families’ ability to repay the loan. For new homes with a purchase price of $115,000 or less. Eligible borrowers: Single parents (at least one dependent under the age of 18 must live in the home.) Households with a person who has a permanent disability and who receives some form of disability income (SSI, SSDI, Veterans Disability etc.). Households where at least one of the home buyers is age 62 or older. Income guidelines: $28,000 for a household of 1 or 2 people; or $33,000 for a household of 3 or more people. Kentucky Housing’s DAP loan program may be used for down payment and closing cost assistance. Applying for a Kentucky Housing loan is easy.
