      FAQ'S

Q: Do I have to get a Home Inspection when I buy a house?

A: If you are purchasing a house using funds from our grant , you are required by NYSHCR to get a Certified Home Inspection. If you are not using our funds to purchase your home, it is your choice BUT, it is highly recommended that you do get an inspection, to protect your investment, and to make sure your home is in good condition.

Q: What does my credit score have to be, before I can take out a mortgage?

A: This depends on what type of loan you are applying for. For instance, with an FHA loan, your score typically can be as low as 580. With a conventional loan, banks and lenders are looking for a score of at least 640. The higher your score is, the lower your interest rates will be.

Q: How much can I afford to spend on a mortgage payment?

A: Typically you do not want to spend more than 25% of your monthly income (take home pay). Most mortgage payments include your insurance and taxes as well as your principle and interest (PITI). Sometimes buyers are shocked the first time they see their statement. So when looking at your Closing Disclosure, look at the total, and not just the Principle. 

                      Please feel free to email or call us here at OHDC with any other questions. We will 

                                                            do our best to help you.
