Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need for a Downpayment?
There are programs that offer 0% down like VA and USDA but the average is between 3-5% down.
How much are closing costs?
Costs vary depending on the type of home you are buying, time of year, and loan product you are using. However, 3% is a good amount to budget for. In some cases you can ask the seller to cover some or all of these costs.
How much are inspections?
You want to have a whole home inspection, sewer scope, and radon at least. All together those will cost about $1,000. If you are buying a more rural property we will also need a well and septic inspection which can be another $1,000.
What is the difference between signing, recording, and closing.
In Oregon, we sign all the closing documents ahead of time. This will often take place 1-2 days before our closing date. Recording takes place when all the docs have been sent and received by the city or county offices. Closing is when the house and deed are officially in your name, this is when we can give you keys. It is typically at 5pm on the day of closing.
When do I have to make my first payment?
One full month after closing. So if you close in March, your first payment is due on May 1st.
