How to use the grant 3% seller financed mortgages without closing time?

Deal Score0

Here’s my situation, I am now on a contract, a home for $ 300,000 and the seller (a bank) has agreed to provide up to $ 9,000 (3%) in grants seller. In the meantime, I have a lender who is willing to make a loan closing costs. My loan is $ 240,000 when I put 20% (ie $ 60,000). Could you please advise me how smart you are using this subsidy seller? Should I re-negotiate the price with the seller? (Lowering the price to $ 291,000) or is there another way to use it for $ 9000? Please help Sie.Meine interest rates are the same, with or without charges. My Details of loan: 15 years fixed rate mortgage and even if I buy points (max: 1.25) to reduce, or I end up with a cost of closing approximately $ 6,000 $ 3,000 meaning remains unused.

    Tell the lender you don’t want a no closing cost loan. That simply means they are giving you a higher rate to pay your closing costs. You don’t need that if the seller is paying $ 9000. You should even be able to buy the rate down with a point or so.

    Talk to another lender. Something is not right with what you are saying.

    there are no “no closing costs” loans. All that means is that the interest rate has been increased to cover the actual closing costs. As for a regular loan and if there is money left over, buy down the rate.

    In regards to renegotiating the sales price. As a seller, I would say NO. The keys words in the contract is “UP TO”. If you don’t use the full 3%, this is your fault, not the fault of the seller.
