VA Loan in Clarksville TN

I will be getting a VA Loan.

va loan

So many times I have had young soldiers and their wives come up to me and tell me that they are ready to buy a house here in Clarksville TN. When I ask them if they have been pre-approved for a certain amount, they will tell me something along the lines of “I am a vet and I will be getting a VA Loan so it’s not an issue”. Well, that’s not the case most of the time. Your credit rating still comes into play. I don’t know why so many vets in the Clarksville TN area seem to think it’s an entitlement that they will get no matter how bad their credit scores are.  A VA loan is not a guarantee, it is a government backed program, not a guarantee loan for vets.

Eligibility Requirements
Your length of service or service commitment, duty status and character of service determine your eligibility for specific home loan benefits.

Dunbar Cave

Montgomery County is honeycombed by caves, the most prominent being Dunbar Cave. This 8.1-mile cave has a long and significant history. Excavations revealed that this cave has been occupied by man for thousands of years, drawn by its constant stream flow and natural air conditioning. Dunbar Cave is the most prominent of several caves located in 110 acre Dunbar Cave natural area.

In the roomy mouth of the cave, square dances, radio shows and Big Band era concerts were held. More recently prehistoric pictographs have been discovered in the cave. The documented Mississippian Tradition art is about 1,000 years old and depicts religious themes. This is the only prehistoric Native American cave art in a public cave.  The cave also has WW2 era items stored in it that vandals set on fire and graffiti from the early to late 1900s.

Tennessee State Parks has suspended cave tours for years at Dunbar Cave State Natural Area after a bat from Dunbar Cave tested positive for White Nose Syndrome. Dunbar Cave is closed indefinitely in an effort to take every necessary precaution to isolate the fungus as much as possible in order to protect bat populations at other nearby hibernacula, recognizing that bat-to-bat transmission is still possible.  Last year the cave was re-opened to guided tours.

Other park activities and events, including fishing, hiking and picnic facilities.

There are several nice neighborhoods surrounding the Dunbar Cave park as well as a public golf course (Swan Lake).  Homes are readily available for sale and range from the low 100s up into the Million price range depending on the neighborhood and size.

There are rental homes available around the Dunbar Cave.

Mortgages Clarksville TN, Ron Dayley Realtor

Mortgage Payment FAQ

How can I buy a house with no money down?

In order to buy a house with no money down, you’ll just need to apply for a no-money-down mortgage. If you don’t which mortgage loan is your best zero money down option, that’s okay. A mortgage lender can help steer you in the right direction. There are multiple 100 percent mortgages available for today’s home buyers.

Can cash gifts be used as a down payment?

Yes, cash gifts can be used for a down payment on a home. However, when you’re receiving a cash gift, you’ll want to make sure you follow a few procedures.

For example, make sure the gift is made using a personal check, a cashier’s check, or a wire; and keep paper records of the gift, including photocopies of the checks and of your deposit to the bank. Also, make sure that your deposit matches the amount of the gift exactly.

Your lender will also want to verify that the gift is actually a gift and not a loan-in-disguise. Cash gifts do not require repayment.

Mortgage Payment options Clarksville TN

What are the FHA down payment assistance programs?

FHA down payment assistance programs are available to home buyers and 87% of U.S. single-family homes potentially qualify. Programs will vary by state, so be sure to ask your mortgage lender for which programs you may be eligible. The average home buyer using down payment assistance receives $11,565.

Are there any home buyer grants?

Home buyer grants are available to U.S. home buyers and all are eligible to apply, which are also known as down payment assistance (DPA) programs. DPA programs are widely-available but seldom used — 87% of single-family homes potentially qualify, but less than 10% of buyers think to apply. Your mortgage lender can help you determine which DPAs are best for you.

What are the FHA loan requirements?

The FHA loan requirements are; 1.) You must have a credit score of at least 500; 2.) Income which can be verified using W-2 statements and paystubs, or federal tax returns;3.) No history of bankruptcy, foreclosure, or short sale within the last 12 months. 4.) You must not be delinquent on your federal taxes, your federal student loans, or any other federal debt.

What are the benefits to putting more money down?

Just as there are benefits to low and 0 money down mortgages, there are benefits to putting more money down on a purchase. For example, when you put more money down on a home, the amount you need to mortgage is less, which reduces your monthly mortgage payment. Additionally, if your mortgage requires mortgage insurance, with more money down, your mortgage insurance will “cancel” in fewer years.

If I make a low down payment, do I pay mortgage insurance?

When you make a low down payment, you’re more likely to pay mortgage insurance (MI), but not necessarily. For example, the VA Home Loan Guaranty program doesn’t require mortgage insurance, so if you use a VA loan, making a low downpayment won’t matter. Conversely, FHA and USDA loans always require mortgage insurance so even with large down payments, you’ll have a monthly MI charge.

The only loan for which your down payment affects your mortgage insurance is the conventional mortgage. The smaller your down payment, the higher your monthly PMI. However, once your home has twenty percent equity, you’ll eligible to have your PMI removed.

If I make a low down payment, what are my lender fees?

The size of your down payment doesn’t relate to your lender fees. No matter how large or how small your down payment, your lender fees should remain equal. This is because mortgage lenders are prohibited from charging higher fees based on the size of your down payment . It should be noted, however, that different loan types may require different services (e.g.; home inspection, roof inspection, home appraisal), and this may affect your total loan closing costs.

What is the minimum down payment for a mortgage?

The minimum down payment for a mortgage are:

VA loan: 0% down payment (This is really popular around Clarksville TN).
USDA loan: 0% down payment
Conventional 97 mortgage: 3% down payment
HomeReady™ mortgage: 3% down payment
FHA loan: 3.5% down payment
In addition to the above programs, down payment assistance programs are often available and provide, on average, more than $11,000 to today’s buyers of homes.
Local Banks in Clarksville TN have special Financing programs going on from time to time, currently F&M Bank has a really great program for 1st time home buyers with 0 down.  Legends Bank also has some good local home loan programs.

How can I fund a down payment?

A down payment can be funded multiple ways, and your lender will often be flexible ( you are better off talking to your local bank here in Clarksville TN, they will work with you ). Some of the more common ways to fund a down payment is to use your savings or checking account; or, for repeat buyers, the proceeds from the sale of your existing home.

However, there are other ways to fund a down payment, too. For example, home buyers can receive a cash gift for their down payment or can borrow from their 401k or IRA (although that’s not always wise).

Down payment assistance programs can fund a down payment, too. Typically, down payment assistance programs grants money to home buyers with the stipulation that they live in the home for a certain number of years — often 5 years or fewer.

Regardless of from where you fund your down payment, though, make sure to keep a paper trail. Without a clear account of the source of your down payment, a mortgage lender may not allow its use.

How much home can I afford?

The answer to the question of “How much home can I afford?” is a personal one, and one which should not be left to your mortgage lender.

The best way to answer the question of how much can you afford for a home is to start with your monthly budget and determine what you can comfortably pay for a home each month. Then, using your desired payment as the starting point, use a mortgage calculator to work backwards in order to find your maximum home purchase price.  *Please do not make any purchases while home shopping, a car loan can and will kill your loan process.

Note that today’s mortgage rates will affect your mortgage calculations so be sure to use current mortgage rates when you’re doing your calculations. When mortgage rates change, so does home affordability.

Zero Down Mortgage Loans

Zero down mortgages are 100% financed loan types offered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA loan or “Rural Housing Loans”) and the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA loan). Additionally there are several low down payment options like the FHA loan (3.5% down), the conventional 97% (3% down) and the HomeReady mortgage (3% down).
