In real estate, it is important to understand the type of mortgage you are undertaking to buy your home.  There are two basic types of loans.  There is the conventional loan and the FHA insured loan.  In a conventional loan, the borrower will most likely be required to put 20% down.  In an FHA loan, the borrower will only be required to put 3% down, but will have to take out the PMI insurance which amounts to 1.5% of the loan amount at closing, and an additional .5% annually.

If you are thinking of buying or selling, talk to a real estate professional who can get you the information you need to make an informed decision.

As always, if I can help with any of your real estate needs, please don’t hesitate to text or call me at 615 417-8182 or email me at
