This presentation on buying a Home is presented to you by DFW Metro Housing Presented by Colin Rosenthal TEL 214-704-4005 FAX 214-666-3227 email@example.com http://wwwdfwmetrohousing.com
What does it take to own your own home? • 1) Mortgage payment • 2) Utilities • 3) Buy a lawn mower? • 4) How about the leaking Tap or broken stove? • Please remember when calculating what you can afford per month that there are many hidden items that will come up when owning a home. These items never came up or were paid by your landlord when you were renting.
Never over extend your self • Most of the recent foreclosures happened because people over extended them selves when buying their home. • EG You paid $800 a month in rent and now have to pay $1000 a month in your mortgage and have a hot water heater that went out this month and had to finance it at $100 a month for the next year?
Always leave yourself something in reserve for an emergency • When planning your budget always think of an emergency and leave about a $100 or more to take care of items like the hot water heater or A/C. I always ask for a home owners warranty when presenting a contract but there is still a $65 deductible to pay • Now say Hi to ASHA and her children
Asha Smith and her 2 children Tyler and Faith Needed a home • Once Asha had decided in March of 2008 that she was going to get her own home there was no stopping her. • She persevered and overcame every obstacle and on January 8th this year she moved into her Brand new home with the help of AHAP and TCHP
Only $890 a month for a Brand new home • Asha’s Home was appraised at $120000 and TCHP and AHAP together gave her $20000 towards the purchase of this new home. The $20000 was used to pay for the Down payment, Closing costs and the balance went to equity in the home. Her mortgage was for $92000 and her payment is $890 a month. All she had to invest was $1000 and be there to answer any questions that came during the processing of her loan and that came from AHAP.
What did it take • Team work • Every time she was asked for something no matter how small, she was on the ball and got it to them pronto. This is the only way you are going to get into your own home is with TEAM WORK
Chapter OneClosing Costs those horrible words • The biggest nightmare for any prospective seller or buyer are the 2 words “ Closing Costs” • But in any real Estate transaction these are words you will always hear….Now to begin • Let us for simple calculating reasons let us say that we have found you a lovely home priced at $100000. Youwould like to submit a contract but need to know what you expenses are going to be and what you can afford. • There are from both sides (Buyer and Seller) expenses which are called closing cost associated with this contract that are going to cost both the buyer and seller lots of money.
Sellers Closing Costs • The Home is priced at $100000 • The seller will have to pay the following: • Listing agent and buyers agent commissions normally about 6% or $6000 • Title policy and property taxes year to date, plus title and legal fee normally these costs amount to about 3% or $3000 • This mean that the sellers closing costs are about $9000.
The Actual Buyers closing costs • The Actual buyers closing costs are as follows: • Loan setup fees, prepaid Insurance and Taxes on the home. Pre-paid FHA insurance as well as other hidden title items. These expenses normally add up to about 6% or in this case $6000 on our $100000 home we are purchasing.
Types of Mortgage • Before we get deeper into buyers closing costs let us discuss the kinds of mortgages available. • 1) FHA (This is what we will be using to get you your home) • 2) Conventional • 3) VA • 4) USDA
Buyers closing cont. • Down payment of Between 3.5 and 5% of the price of the home with an FHA Loan. In this case 3.5% or $3500. • Therefore you the buyer will need to have a total of $9500 ($6000 plus $3500) in the bank to be able to purchase THIS HOME FOR $100000. • $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
Buyer Closing Costs page 4 • Now we have a total of about $9500 we will need to buy the home including the down payment • The best type of mortgage loan to get today in this current market is an FHA 201B FHA loan which depending on you earning capacity and credit score requires a minimum of 3.5% down payment
The Problem • Very few people have $9500 ready and waiting to buy a home and this is where our knowledge and experience help you get a home of your own: • There are various different methods of overcoming this problem but this is where our team work begins.
The Texas First time Home buyer • How can we eliminate or at least help you with your Down payment and continue to help you get into your home with only $1000 investment? • Through Government Grant Programs • Example: TDHCD Grant program. • Arlington Home Assistance Program.
Programs Cont. • The Fort Worth Home buying assistance program which offers up to $8500 in down payment and closing assistance all over Fort Worth and $14500 in a designated area of Fort Worth. • Starting about April 15th 2009 the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP)
NSPNeighborhood Stabilization Program • The NSP plan varies by City but you can get anywhere from $10000 to $45000 in assistance on purchasing a Foreclosed Home in designated area all over the Metro-plex. At present the plans have already been developed for Arlington and Fort Worth and are still being developed for Garland, Mesquite, depressed parts of Dallas, Dallas and Tarrant Counties

We have your home • Now we have found a few homes that you like and are ready to submit a contract on the one you like the most. • The reason I say a few homes is because we will always be asking the seller for concessions and often they will not negotiate or counter so we have to find a few nice home that you will like.
