How to Buy a House: The Loan (Mortgage)

How to Buy a House: The Loan (Mortgage)
(We'll talk more about how to get a loan in a minute.) The bank loaning the money is the lender. The amount you pay to the bank each month is your mortgage payment. The rate of interest on the loan is the mortgage rate (or the interest rate). If you don't make your mortgage payments then the bank will repossess the house.

Can You Buy A House With Cash And Then Get A Mortgage?
That's why some buyers are turning to a unique solution to better compete when multiple offers are on the table: paying with cash now, then getting a mortgage later. Sound complicated? It is. Here's how it works and what you should consider.

1. Why cash is still king in competitive real estate markets
Here’s the strategy: Buyers liquidate their assets, amass enough cash to purchase the home outright, and then put in an offer as an all-cash buyer. For sellers, all-cash offers are more attractive than ones from buyers who need to finance the purchase. Cash deals mean fewer contingencies — mainly, the sale of the home is contingent upon the buyer getting the mortgage, and there’s no guarantee that will happen. For instance, the sale could fall through if something goes wrong during the underwriting process. The sale is also contingent upon a home inspection and appraisal if the buyer finances the purchase, and again, a number of issues could come up that may make your lender (and you) pause. Plus, all-cash deals tend to close more quickly and with fewer overall complications than a sale that depends on financing.


2. A new buying strategy: cash first, mortgage later
Buyers are using the cash first, mortgage later strategy to circumvent these contingencies. They still finance their home with a mortgage, but they delay that process until after the sale is final. “With prior proper planning, a buyer could conceivably offer a 24-hour closing,” says Dennis Crowley, principal of Vitruvius Capital Consultants. Before opening his own firm, Crowley served as a private banker and helped buyers use this strategy to purchase homes.

There are downsides, however, to this tactic. “You’re using marketable securities as collateral,” Crowley warns. “This means that the buyer and lender have agreed that the collateral is worth a certain amount, and that amount can change without notice.”

3. What to consider before liquidating your assets

This buying strategy isn’t right for everyone. “Use the same wisdom you’d apply to any other purchase,” Crowley advises. “Make decisions with facts and not emotions and understand your options thoroughly.” Instead of liquidating your assets and putting a lot of pressure on yourself to purchase a home, consider a new timeline for your homeownership goal — perhaps set a goal to buy in five years instead. By then, you’ll have saved up more cash and may not need to liquidate existing investments. Second, the real estate market could change during that time — making these extreme measures unnecessary.

But if you do your research and determine cash first, mortgage later is something you want to do, you need to know how it actually works. After all, not many buyers are trying the strategy, simply because they don’t know it’s an option.

4. How to buy with cash first and get your mortgage later
Some buyers take money out of their retirement savings. Others liquidate other investment accounts and various assets like other property or use cash savings. Buyers also turn to (generous) relatives to help gather the amount needed to cover the purchase price. Once you have enough cash, you purchase the home (woohoo!). Then you get a mortgage, using that loan amount to refill the accounts you depleted and pay back anyone who helped you gather the cash you needed to buy.

Of course, you need to be careful when dipping into retirement savings, like 401(k) and IRA accounts — it’s not always a wise move. You’ll be penalized for withdrawing funds before retirement age, so include those fees in the total cost of your mortgage if you want to fully pay back those accounts. And an important note: Crowley points out that trying to use your existing assets this way is not for people who want to borrow money they don’t have. The cash first, mortgage later option is intended for people who want to employ capital that they already have in the most efficient way, he says.

5. More factors to consider
Remember to evaluate your situation (and your assets) to determine whether buying this way is even an option. “A buyer with roughly 150% of their proposed purchase price in marketable securities brings these options into play,” Crowley says. “Failing that, a buyer who has at least 200% of a required down payment might consider these.”

An understanding of marketable securities is a prerequisite for this buying strategy. Crowley recommends finding the right lender too. Most mass-market lenders won’t be able to support the level of complexity required to help with the process from start to finish. “Most major brokerage firms offer these options. Some smaller firms do as well,” Crowley says. “Even some independent financial planners have access to such channels.”

The bottom line? Liquidating your assets to purchase a home with cash and delaying financing by taking out a mortgage after you buy is an interesting strategy — but not one that’s right for everyone. It can help keep your offer competitive when you’re trying to purchase a home, but you shouldn’t just liquidate all your assets to become a cash buyer. Use money you already have as leverage, and don’t try this strategy simply because you don’t currently have enough cash to put money down on a home or to buy a home outright.

How to Buy a House The Basics of Buying a House.
The Loan (aka, "The Mortgage")


The loan you get from the bank is called a mortgage, also called a note.  (We'll talk more about how to get a loan in a minute.)

The bank loaning the money is the lender.  The amount you pay to the bank each month is your mortgage payment.  The rate of interest on the loan is the mortgage rate (or the interest rate).

If you don't make your mortgage payments then the bank will repossess the house.  (This is called foreclosure.)  Then they'll sell it to make sure that they can recoup the money they loaned to you, and that you didn't pay back.

The number of years it takes to pay back the loan is called the term, which in the U.S. is either 15 or 30 years.  There are pros and cons of each:


15-year mortgage

30-year mortgage

• Saves a bundle on interest
• Pay off the loan in half the time

• Easier to qualify for
• Lower monthly payments
• Allows you to buy a higher-priced home
• Keeps your cash liquid


How do you choose between the two?  If you want the most flexibility then take the 30-year loan.  You can still save on interest and pay your loan off early by paying the bank a little extra each month (or whenever you can afford it).  The difference is that with a 30-year loan you get to dictate how much extra you want to pay, and therefore how much you want to save.  With a 15-year loan you have to make bigger payments every month whether you like it or not.

On the other hand, if you can definitely afford the payments on a 15-year loan, and you don't trust yourself to make extra principal payments on a 30-year loan, then take the 15-year loan and enjoy the fact that you'll save a bundle of interest and pay off the loan in half the time, without having to do anything special.


Paying back a mortgage

You pay back your loan by making a payment every month.  At closing you'll usually have the opportunity to sign a form which lets the bank draft the payment automatically from your bank account each month, which is very convenient.  If you decline to do the auto-draft, then it's your responsibility to make your payment each month on your own initiative.  The bank won't send you a monthly bill.

Part of your payment goes towards the principal (the amount the bank loaned you), and part of it is interest (the bank's profit from lending you money).  So when the bank loans you $100,000 you pay them back that $100,000 and then some.  If you only had to pay back the same $100,000 they gave you then there wouldn't be anything in it for them.  That's why they charge interest.

Even though part of your monthly payment is for principal and part is for interest, you make only one payment to the bank each month, and that payment amount stays the same for the life of the loan.  You don't have to know how much of your payment is for principal and how much is for interest, and you generally don't need to know.  At the end of the year the bank will send you a statement for your taxes (since you'll get to deduct the interest you paid if you itemize), and the statement will tell you how much interest you paid over the year.


Mortgage interest

Interest is the fee you pay for the privilege of borrowing money.  It's how the bank makes a profit by giving you a loan.  Naturally, the lower the interest rate, the better for you, because you'll pay less total interest.  And since the interest is part of your monthly payment, a lower interest rate means a lower monthly payment, too.  Finally, a lower interest rate means you can afford a more expensive house.  (Let's say you've got $1500/mo. to pay towards a home.  When less of that $1500 goes to interest, more of it can go towards paying off the cost of the home, which means you can afford a pricier house.)  So when you get to the point where you're shopping for a loan, you'll try to get the lowest rate possible. 

Incidentally, in June 2012, U.S. mortgage rates dropped to a record low of 3.66%, the lowest rate since 30-year mortgages started in the 1950s. (MSNBC)  HSH has a list of historical mortgage rates since 1986.

Maybe you remember percentages from high school, so you figure that if you have a $100,000 loan at 6% you'll be paying the bank back $106,000?  Nice try, but that would work only if you paid back the loan after one year. The 6% rate is an annual rate, so you're going to pay that 6% every year.  (You won't pay quite as much as $6000 x 30 though, because you pay interest only on the outstanding balance, not the original loan amount, and as time goes by your balance gets lower.)

The actual amount of interest you pay each month is the current outstanding balance, times the interest rate, divided by 12. (e.g., For $150,000 left on a loan at 6%, means you'd pay $150,000 x 6% ÷ 12 = $750 in interest for that month.)  If your eyes just glazed over then don't worry about it, it's not important to know the math now, I just provide the details for those who want to understand everything completely. Here's all you need to know:

  1. Over the life of the loan, you'll be paying the bank a lot more than just the interest rate times the loan amount.
  2. When comparing loan offers from two different banks, just a single percentage point of difference means a big difference in how much interest is paid.
  3. For the first several years most of your payment goes to interest, not principal. On a 30-year, 7% mortgage, in year #15 over 75% of your monthly payment goes to interest and not equity. After 15 years you won't own half your house, you'll own only 27% of it.

Here are some pretty pictures to demonstrate the first two points. We'll assume a $125,000 loan for 30 years at various interest rates.

Total Interest Paid Over the Life of the Loan
The Mortgage-1

So even at a very low interest rate of 6%, you're paying $145,000 in interest on a $125,000 loan. So you borrow $125,000 and pay back $270,000 — more than double what you borrowed!

It's even worse if you have a higher interest rate.  Note how going from a 6% to 10% interest rate means you pay an extra $125,000 over the life of the loan.  So the total you'd pay on a $125,000 loan at 10% would be $125,000 principal + $269,907 interest = $394,907!  Quite a lot to pay back for a $125,000 loan, huh?

Average Yearly Interest ($125,000 loan, 30 years)
The Mortgage-2

Here again, going from 6% to 10% interest means you pay an extra $4000 on average in interest each year!

How the interest rate affects the monthly payment
The Mortgage-3

Types of loans

For the most part, you don't have to concern yourself with the difference between the three main kinds of loans (Conventional, FHA, and VA loan).  It's your lender's job to try to pick the best loan for your needs and qualifications, not yours. But since you'll hear these terms bandied about frequently, you might want to know what they mean, so here ya go.

Conventional. This is a fancy word for "normal".  A conventional loan is just a regular, normal loan.  If your credit is good and you can swing at least a 5% down payment, then it's better than an FHA loan, since the fees are a lot lower, and there's less red tape.

FHA. The U.S. government offers the FHA loan program to make home-buying easier.  These loans are generally easier to qualify for, and can be had for down payments as low as 3.5% (vs. 5% for conventional loans).  The loans aren't actually made by the government, they're still made by the banks; the feds just guarantee part of the loan if you default, which means that they pay the bank if you fail to make your payments.  Don't get excited about the government making your payments for you, though — if you fail to make your mortgage payments the bank will still take the house back from you.  The feds pays the bank after the bank has already repossessed your house.  Note that not all sellers will agree to an FHA loan, because there's a little more red tape involved.

     Also, one flavor of FHA loans is the FHA 203k, which will let you borrow any money needed for additional repairs or modernization.  For example, if you're buying a $170k home, and it needs $30k of repairs, you could borrow $200k through an FHA 203k.  In fact, the FHA 203k is usually the only way you can borrow a lot of money for initial repairs.  The downside is that the interest rate on such loans is about one percentage point higher.

VA.  VA loans are an option for veterans, and it's possible to put 0% down on one.  Just like with FHA loans, the VA itself doesn't lend money, it just guarantees part of the loan so lenders feel comfortable lending the money.  VA-guaranteed loans can be combined with second mortgages (which is when the bank makes the main loan covering most of the price of the house, and the seller makes a separate loan to the buyer for the rest of the price.)  VA loans can be assumed by any future qualified buyer, so your hands aren't tied if you need to sell — you can sell to anybody, not just another veteran.

說起法拍屋貸款:想買房的民眾超過一半以上,在購買房屋的同時,都會選擇向銀行借款購屋總價的6-8成做房屋貸款,房屋貸款的好處是你不需要拿出全額現金,只需要準備2-4成自備款,其餘部分,銀行會貸款給你,之後每個月須付給銀行房屋利息或本利攤還即可,讓購屋變容易很多,你也可以輕鬆貸,輕鬆繳,這是現在購屋的趨勢。 什麼是法拍屋? 法拍屋來源多是房屋所有權人積欠債權人款項,債權人依照強制執行法將該屋交由法院拍賣,以將法拍金額償還債權人。 通常法院會在房屋拍賣前2周公告拍賣訊息,有興趣的競標者,只要在拍賣當日將寫上價格的標書,連同底標2成的保證金投入標箱即完成競標。若未得標,保證金會全額退還,若得標,須在7日內繳清扣除保證金後的房屋尾款。 然而法拍屋在以前是沒辦法貸款的,因為當法拍屋拍定後7天需要繳交尾款,如果沒有繳納進去,兩成的自備款就會被沒收,而站在銀行的立場,沒有拿到權狀時,是沒辦法貸款給你的。所以以前民間有很多的代墊款出現,利息月利率動輒百分之五以上(當然當年的銀行房貸利息與信貸利息也較為高),成為當時想標法拍屋現金不足的唯一方式。法拍屋還有甚麼隱藏成本? 現在的法拍屋除了市場資訊越來越透明,競爭跟以前比起來也多很多,銀行的觸角,從以前不願意承做,一直到新竹商業銀行、渣打銀行首開先例後,轉接著聯邦銀行也跳入法拍屋市場想要搶食這一塊業務,之後越來越多銀行看到這一塊大餅,也開始紛紛投入法拍屋的借款市場。 何時需要法拍屋貸款? 法拍屋貸款方案(代墊尾款)和一般房貸方案不同,投標人與借款人須為同一人,銀行承辦法拍屋貸款(代墊尾款),得標後的多以信用貸款方式承作,利率為6%上下,等法院權力移轉書寄達,房屋過戶至貸款人名下,便可轉申請一般房屋貸款, 此時才適用一般較低利率。 法拍屋可能低於市場價格,但銀行代墊尾款利率高,且自備資金需求較多,想投入法拍的民眾,一定要先評估自身資金狀況; 信用記錄是否良好(牽涉貸款核准與否)與該屋現況條件。 法拍屋的資金需求主要分成三個階段,首先是投標之前「投標保證金」,到得標之後的「墊付拍定尾款」,以及最後過戶以後的「房屋擔保貸款」。 [caption id="attachment_1159" align="alignnone" width="650"] 若連續3個月以上無法如期繳交貸款,銀行就可以向法院拍賣抵押的房屋,來償還債務人積欠的貸款。此時法院所拍賣的房屋,就叫做法拍屋。[/caption] 因為得標後7天內必須將扣除保證金後之餘款繳清, 才能取得權利移轉證明, 此時跟銀行申請的法拍屋貸款,對銀行來說是沒有擔保的貸款, 所以風險高, 利率自然較高, 不過畢竟是短期墊款, 利息成本不算太高。 TORO前面有提到,以前銀行不願意承做法拍屋理由是因為權狀還未取得,無法貸款尾款給得標人。後期後銀行轉了一個彎,將法拍屋拍定後的尾款當成信貸的方式,做短期的貸款,這時候利息比較高,銀行擔保相對較為薄弱,所以你在借款時銀行會要求將拍定後的保證金收據、已繳尾款收據、與不動產權利移轉證書收據都要交付銀行,銀行會直接在代墊款後申報完稅,完成後直接將代墊款金額轉成一般房貸,當然利息就會回到市場房貸利息了。 所以現在的法拍屋,是可以向部分銀行申請代墊款的,但我們建議,投標之前還是先撥一個電話給銀行,並告知欲投標的法拍屋位置,確認銀行可以承做此間法拍屋,再進行投標,以免拍定後,如果碰上因個別物件銀行不願承作貸款,七天內繳不出尾款被斷頭的風險。 目前並非所有的銀行都有辦理法拍屋貸款,目前有承辦法拍屋貸款銀行如下: 法拍屋 法務部行政執行署拍賣公告 司法院法拍屋公告   金拍屋 台灣金融資產服務公司     銀拍屋 國泰世華銀行 日盛國際商業銀行 兆豐國際商業銀行 新光銀行 合作金庫銀行 彰化銀行 聯邦商業銀行 華南銀行 第一商業銀行 美商花旗銀行 安泰商業銀行 臺灣銀行 台灣企業銀行 台灣土地銀行 台新國際商業銀行 台中商業銀行 上海商業銀行 三信商業銀行 小提醒:法院之法拍屋公告不一定將現況敘述完整, 在「點交」與「不點交」之外, 對於此不動產的過去歷史不一定會告知, 因此曾發生買到凶宅無法貸款的情況。建議準備購買法拍屋還是要先到標的物附近查訪、詢問鄰居、甚至上網查詢是否附近曾發生過相關的社會事件。 鉅軒代書(地政士)AMC 24小時服務專線:0908-927-682 公司地址:台北市大安區忠孝東路四段59號10F-5 營業時間:上午8:00 ~ 下午5:00 LINE ID:0908927682 提供臺北金主直營,土地貸款,土地融資,代償當舖,銀行代辦,土地借錢,建地貸款,農牧用地,土地持分,銀行二胎,農地持分,不動產抵押,都市計劃地,工業用地,魚塭借錢,養地借款,代償高利貸,公園綠地,農地借錢,田地借款,林地融資,地價指數,法拍代墊,2胎, 二胎, 二胎代書, 二胎利率, 二胎房貸, 二胎貸款, 信用貸款, 信貸, 借錢指南, 土地貸款, 小額信貸, 建地貸款, 房屋二胎, 房屋貸款, 房貸二胎, 房貸增貸, 民間二胎, 貸款, 農地借錢。銀行等全方位的銀行貸款資訊一次搞定貸款麻煩事!
