A pre-approval is a powerful leverage when negotiating with a seller. It demonstrates that your file and credit have been thoroughly reviewed, confirming your mortgage eligibility. With a pre-approval, you can approach negotiations confidently, knowing your financial ducks are in a row. It helps determine your maximum loan amount, ensures an affordable monthly payment, safeguards against rising interest rates, and provides leverage in negotiations.
Your down payment plays a crucial role in securing your mortgage, and understanding its source is essential for qualification. Here are common sources of down payments:
Understanding the various sources of down payments can help you make informed decisions when purchasing a home. Consult with a knowledgeable professional to explore which option best suits your unique circumstances.
Legal Fees & Disbursements: Your lawyer will charge a fee for their services, along with out-of-pocket expenses incurred.
Home Inspection: It’s recommended to order a detailed home inspection report to assess the property’s condition before finalizing the purchase.
Land Transfer Tax: Charged upon property transfer, the amount varies based on factors like home price, first-time home buyer eligibility, and location.
Mortgage Default Insurance Premium: If your down payment is below 20%, a mandatory insurance premium is added to your mortgage, paid back over time.
Property Appraisal: Lenders may require an appraisal report to ensure the property’s value aligns with the purchase price.
Interest Adjustment: When closing occurs after the first day of the month, an interest adjustment may apply until the Interest Adjustment Date (IAD).
Property Tax & Unpaid Utilities: Your lawyer confirms the payment status of property taxes, with adjustments made accordingly.
Being aware of these considerations helps you navigate the closing process smoothly. Consult with your mortgage professional for personalized guidance.
