Applying for a mortgage shouldn’t be hard or confusing,
Why is an appraisal necessary?
Every conventional mortgage that includes a minimum 20% down payment requires an appraisal because the mortgage is uninsured. The lender wants to see that your purchase price is in line with the property’s fair market value. Lenders want to see that you are purchasing a quality property and that they will be able to recuperate the full amount if you default on the loan.
Can I make my down payment with gifted money?
In most cases, the answer is yes. However, the funding must be from a family member. There are certain circumstances in which you cannot use gifted funds. For example, your mortgage product may have a limit on the percentage of the down payment that can be gifted. Rampone-Marsh Mortgages can find out if your gifted funds can be applied to your down payment.
