How much do I need for a down payment?

Typically you will need a minimum of 3%-5% down payment on a home. To figure out the dollar amount, take the sales price and multiply it by 0.03 or 0.05. We do offer some 100% financing programs,

Should I get pre-approved before looking at homes?

Yes! Yes! YES! -- know exactly what budget you qualify for in order to set realistic expectations with yourself and your REALTOR. We will make sure you are comfortable with your estimated payment, loan type, down payment, and all other financing terms BEFORE you begin looking at homes.

What credit score do I need to have?

The quick answer is the higher the better. Our minimum credit score required to obtain financing is 640. Credit scores are ranked from 300 - 850, and you would want to be on the higher end of that. If you don't know where your score is, you can use free tools online or through your credit card to see what your "consumer" score is -- **this will be different from your FICO score that we pull. Contact us to see for sure.
