Loan Commitment FHA - First Time Homebuyer

Asked by Hfaison, 20705 Fri Dec 11, 2009

I'm a first time homebuyer and just recieved a loan commitment on an FHA loan. What are the next steps? How long does it take from receiving the commitment to acutally getting the keys in my hand.

That really depends on the conditions of the commitment and the lender. Are there any open conditions?

This would be a great question for your agent and/or loan officer.

I agree with Gary. Calling a local Realtor is a must. Buying a home without representation simply does not make sense in these turbulent times.

Good luck in your search.

The next step is to call me for a free buyer consultation. Having me as a Realtor to help you with all your real estate needs will help you make informed and confident decisions. My office is located just down the road from the Beltsville area. I would be happy to help you.

Hi H Faison...Congratulations on your loan commitment!!!

The next step would be to get with a qualified agent who specializes is selling homes in your area of choice and "go shopping". Of course this agent would want to sit down with you for a brief consultation first, especially being as though you're a first time purchaser to go over the entire process with you from A-Z. So you'll not just be a home buyer, but an INFORMED home buyer.

Much success to you in your home search...

I'm assuming that since you've already met with a lender, he or she discussed with you the downpayment and closing cost requirements with FHA financing. Your next step is to determine a location that you want to live and meet with a Realtor to discuss your options.

With the current interest rates and tax credit incentives, it's a great time to buy your first home. Good Luck!
