3 More Myths About Home Buying & Mortgage Rates Busted, Amherst, New York

Buying a home is a complex process that depends on professional insight and accurate information. Unfortunately, buyers are surrounded by pervasive myths and misunderstandings on almost every aspect of the industry, from negotiating a sale to securing the best mortgage rates.

Fortunately, the experts at Premium Mortgage Corporation, with offices in Rochester, Buffalo, and Syracuse, NY, and Barre, VT, would like to dispel even more myths about the home-buying process.

A Down Payment Is The Only Up-Front Expense

Buying a home involves a long list of costs and fees, which may amount to thousands of dollars. For instance, you may be liable for the closing costs — which could be as much as 2-5% of the purchase price — as well as the home appraisal, processing, underwriting, and variety of additional expenses.

You Need Excellent Credit

While this may be the case for securing a traditional loan, FHA loan programs, for example, offer homebuyers with less-than-perfect credit a chance to invest in their futures and allow you to start with a much lower down payment. Also note, your credit score is can be improved over time with the proper steps taken.

You May Skip The Inspection
