Housing Finance 2020 is everything you need in one book for you to buy a home. Packed with infographics and relatable examples, you'll learn how to estimate your qualified mortgage potential, and exactly what steps and verification documents are required by lenders for each type of mortgage program.
Chapter 1, "Ten ways to cover your down payment" includes infographics and scenarios about grants, and a full range or down payment assistance options, such as zero-percent or "forgivable" loans.
You'll learn how to finance a home with an "over the top" mortgage that bundles in all your closing costs and down payment funds. If you are willing to do a little work, the book shows you how to use "sweat equity" and buy a home with little or no cash in exchange for completing property repairs.
The mystery of credit scores are explained, and chapters such as "new additions to income," and "new subtractions from debt" offer good news regarding student loan debt and self-employed borrowers.
For those looking for a "fixer-upper" or an "energy-efficient" home, or want to learn more about construction loans, manufactured homes-- this book has everything you need to be a homeowner!
