1. What are the main things to look for when shopping for a mortgage? Closing costs and total payment, also request a good faith estimate of closing costs from at least 3 lenders.
2. What programs are available for first time home owners? Depending on what state you’re in, there are some programs available through the state. Another good program is the ‘Home Possible Program’ through Freddie Mac. Rural housing loans are also a good program, again depending on where you live.
3. What are some problems that arise during the buying process? Large deposits showing up on your bank statement. Any large deposits need to be explained. Also, undisclosed debt.
4. A tip for a first time home buyer. I would do a first time home buyer class.
