How Do I Finance My Home?

One of the most important questions we receive when clients are purchasing a home is how do I finance my home? Traditionally, you may purchase a home in one of two ways...

  1. Cash

  2. Traditional Mortgage/Financing

If you are paying cash for your home, you will generally need to present Proof of Funds for entire list/offer amount. This document is in the form of a current bank statement, that show funds equal to or over your offer amount and must be submitted PRIOR to offering..

If financing your home through a mortgage lender you will need a Pre-Qualification Letter or Loan Commitment Letter from your lender. This letter will state the loan amount you are qualified for and will need to be submitted PRIOR to offering. Types of home loans range from Conventional, FHA / VA loans to 203(k) Home Rehabilitation Program.

Please inquire with your personal banker for details about what type of mortgage is best for you, or contact one of our Lion Tail Realty approved lenders below.

Ratings & Reviews

"I would like to say how pleased I am with the level of service I received from Robin Parker and Lion Tail Realty.  I was moving to a different state and needed to rent my house quickly.  Robin was very willing to take on my property even though she mainly handled sales.  She was very professional and made the entire process so easy.  She did a wonderful job listing my property and making sure that I was well informed every step of the way.  She was very proactive and because of that my house was on the market less than 45 days before she secured a responsible tenant.  I would highly recommend Robin Parker to anyone that is in the need of these services and fully plan to use her when I return to the north Georgia area to buy another home!"
