While shopping for a home may be pleasant, serious homebuyers need to start the process in a lender's office, not an open house. Potential buyers benefit in several ways by consulting with a lender and obtaining a pre-approval letter.
- They have an opportunity to discuss loan options and budgeting with the lender.
- The lender will check on their credit and alert the would-be buyers to any problems.
- The buyers learn the maximum they can borrow and therefore have an idea of their price range.
However, all buyers should be careful to estimate their own comfort level with a housing payment rather than immediately aiming for the top of their spending ability. Lastly, home sellers expect all buyers to have a pre-approval letter and are more willing to negotiate with people who have proof that they can obtain financing.
Escrow and Closing Costs
Escrow: When you make an offer on a home, you will write an earnest money check that will be placed in “escrow.” That means it isn’t going directly to the seller but is being held by an impartial third party until you and the seller negotiate a contract and close the deal. You can’t touch it and the seller can’t touch it. It’s in escrow.
That’s important because it protects both parties. Say you put down earnest money that went directly to the seller and then couldn’t reach a final purchase and sale agreement. You don’t want the seller holding your earnest money hostage as a negotiating ploy. Likewise, the seller won’t want to sign over the deed to the home until you’ve paid for it. And you won’t want to hand over cash without the deed being signed. Escrow ensures everyone gets what they are due at essentially the same time.
Closing costs: are fees associated with your home purchase that are paid at the closing of a real estate transaction. Closing is the point in time when the title of the property is transferred from the seller to the buyer. Closing costs are incurred by the buyer and/or seller.
Home warranties are short-term service contracts that help home buyers cover the cost of repairing or replacing certain components of a home in the first year. A home warranty is different from homeowners insurance, and it’s critical to know what a warranty covers before purchasing one.
