2 What to Know Before You Buy CONNECTICUT DEPARTMENT OF CONSUMER PROTECTION Jonathan A. Harris, Commissioner Richard E. Maloney, Director, Trade Practices Michele Erling, Real Estate Enforcement Unit Kelly Harvey, Real Estate Enforcement Unit
3 Getting Started Pre-approval for mortgage Decide on budget Preliminary search and research on your own
4 Looking at Properties The Buyer s Agent Benefits Interview several agents/visit offices Set expectations in writing Avoid agents who Written Buyer/Agency Agreement required by law
5 Looking at Properties The Buyer-Agency Agreement ALL TERMS AND CONDITIONS ARE NEGOTIABLE! Commission (percent of sale price) is negotiable Paid by Seller / Buyer / No Commission / Length of contract Contingencies For Sale by Owner (FSBO)
6 The Buyer Agency Agreement Sign with care It is a legal and binding contract NO 3-day right to cancel Cannot be cancelled without the broker s written permission Do not sign a blank contract Attorney review?
7 Dual Agency/Designated Agency Dual agency broker and all agents in that office represent BOTH the buyer and seller Designated agency two agents within one broker s office appointed separately one represents buyer, one represents seller Be careful
8 Problems with Dual Agency Don t sign a form agreeing to this unless there is a specific property in play Potential problems You have the right to your own buyer agent and are NOT required to agree to Dual Agency
9 Is This the One? Buyer beware: Do your homework Don t rely only on information from others zoning permits title search damage
10 Is This the One? Making an Offer Reverse CMA comparative market analysis (CMA) Residential Property Condition Disclosure Report material facts what may or may not show up Escrow deposit --purpose and protection Contingencies Home inspection choose your own licensed home inspector not agent s recommendation Environmental / well /septic mortgage
11 The Facts are In Negotiate necessary repairs as part of any offer Options: Seller can fix, offer you credit at closing, refuse to negotiate and do nothing Talk to your attorney about any concerns you have
12 This is the One! Have your own attorney at closing Bank s attorney vs. personal attorney representation Do a walk-through right before the closing to be sure repairs are made, property in good shape Issues found should be discussed and resolved by the attorneys at closing -- before final signature

26 Pre-purchase 8 hour Counseling for Prospective Borrowers Classes Cover the following topics: Are you ready for homeownership? Credit and Budgeting Shopping for a home How to make a purchase offer Getting a mortgage Understanding the Mortgage Process Home Maintenance Managing your finances after you become a homeowner
27 GENERAL GUIDELINES QUALIFYING RATIOS Typically, monthly mortgage (Principal, Interest, Taxes and Insurance) should not be more than 31% of gross monthly income if getting downpayment assistance no more than 33% (These ratios vary depending on mortgage insurer.) Total Monthly Debt which includes the above and other debts (credit cards, car loans, student loans--should not be more than 43% of your gross monthly income) (FHA loans)
28 OTHER CONSIDERATIONS Length and stability of employment Insufficient income to cover mortgage and other debts Number of wage earners on loan
29 Applying for the Mortgage After you find a home and sign a contract to purchase, you will need to meet personally with a Participating Lender to apply for the mortgage. Your Lender will advise you of what paperwork you will need to bring with you. This includes: 1. Recent paycheck stubs/tax Returns 2. W-2 forms 3. Bank statements
30 Typical Closing Costs The range of cash needed to close a loan of $100,000 is approximately between $3,500 to $6,000. Typical closing costs include: Loan Origination Fee (1 point) Appraisal Fee Credit Report Re-Inspection Fee Flood Certification Fee Attorney Fee Title Insurance ($4 per $1,000) Recording Fees
32 Points and Fees EXAMPLE: An origination fee* equal to one percent of the loan amount (one point) Loan amount = $ 100,000 1% of $100,000 = $1,000 in points *CHFA now has several options where you can pay reduced or no points, however the interest rate is slightly higher for.50% or 0.0% points structures.
33 INTEREST RATE COMPARRISON (Principal and Interest only taxes and insurance would increase the monthly mortgage payment)
34 Onto Homeownership Once your lender has determined the loan amount you can borrow and your downpayment, they will determine the price range of a home. Finding a home that meets your needs and is within your budget is the challenge in the home search process. A qualified real estate broker can provide you with valuable guidance during your home search.
35 Home Inspection It is to your benefit that you hire a qualified home inspector to evaluate the home you wish to purchase. You will need to check the inspector s qualifications and experience. The inspection report will provide valuable information about the condition of the home as well as the mechanical systems.
36 Qualification Guidelines for CHFA CHFA requires that you be a first-time homebuyer or not have owned a home for the past 3 years unless purchasing in a targeted area. You must agree to live in the home as an owner-occupant. You cannot use the home as a vacation home or as an investment property.
37 CHFA Homebuyer Programs Statewide Homebuyer Homeownership Home of Your Own Military Homeownership Veterans Homeownership Pilot Program Police Homeownership Teachers Mortgage Assistance
38 Eligible Properties Existing and new single family homes Townhouses and Planned Unit Developments FHA Approved condominiums or Fannie Mae eligible condominiums. Two- to four-family homes that have been used as residences for the past 5 years or newly constructed two-family homes in targeted areas.
39 Income Limits Income limits are determined by household size and may vary by county. The Statewide maximum allowable income limits under HFA s Homebuyer programs are as follows: Statewide limits: One- and two-person household: $89,200 Three or more in household: $102,580 Limits may be higher check Income Limits insert
40 Sales Price Limits The home you are purchasing must be within CHFA Sales Price Limits. The sales price limits vary per area of State. Check Sales Price limits insert. Eligible homes for purchase include single family, 2-4 unit multifamily or condominiums that are either FHAapproved or FannieMae eligible depending on the mortgage insurer).
41 Interest Rate and Mortgage Terms The current interest rate for a CHFA Homebuyer Program Mortgage is 3.125% with 1 point for Government Rate and 3.375% for Non-Government with 1 point (NOTE: This rate is subject to change weekly.) The rate is fixed for a term of 30 years and the loan is paid back on a monthly basis over the 30-year term. The monthly payment is comprised of principal, interest, taxes and insurance*. * (Both hazard insurance and mortgage insurance are escrowed.)
42 Downpayment and Closing Cost Assistance CHFA offers Downpayment Assistance Program(DAP) loans. If you do not have sufficient funds saved for a downpayment, you may be eligible to borrow these funds. Required downpayment for FHA loans is 3.5% of purchase price. A downpayment of 3% is required with the HFA Preferred program. You may also be able to borrow closing costs depending on your need and ability to pay back the first mortgage and the DAP second mortgage.
43 Downpayment and Closing Cost Assistance, cont. If you have savings that can be applied toward the downpayment, you must use all but $10,000 of your funds for that purpose. CHFA does not look at your IRA or 401(K) accounts. The DAP loan is considered a second mortgage on the property and is paid to a separate entity Connecticut Housing Investment Fund (CHIF). There is a $200 application fee for the DAP loan.
44 Loan Process and Closing Generally the process from loan application to loan closing is six (6) weeks. Typically a lender will review the loan and collect all necessary information from you including 3 most recent years tax returns, 2 most recent paystubs, checking and savings account statements. The lender will send in your loan package to CHFA for review and CHFA issues a commitment to purchase the loan usually within hours from receipt of the complete loan packet. The closing is scheduled upon receipt of the commitment.
45 Where do you apply for a mortgage? CHFA works with over 120 banks and mortgage companies across the state (Participating Lenders). You apply for a mortgage directly from one of the Participating Lenders. A Participating Lender will work with you and pre-approve you for a loan. They will determine the price of a home you can afford based on income and other underwriting criteria.
