Pilot To Pilot

Everyone, at one time of their life or another, makes plans to buy a home and no matter what  your career, nothing should get in the way of that, pilots included. Finding your dream home  seems simple but finding a pilot-friendly mortgage lender and the perfect loan to fit you and your  needs can be difficult. Here at Trident Home Loans, we have a team of professionals that can  handle the mortgage process and make it as smooth as possible to get into your new home and since we are owned and operated by pilots, we understand better than most. We believe that  being a pilot is one of the most prestigious jobs, but not everyone understands the turmoil and  pitfalls that most pilots deal with. Most lenders out there don’t understand the pay or the  schedules that pilots have and because of that, some pilots don’t get the proper assistance they  need through the mortgage process. Because of this, we will focus on the little-known mortgage  facts that can help pilots avoid typical issues seen as they are applying for a mortgage.

Homestead exemption refers to the possible tax breaks you may qualify for as a primary resident of a  location.  Homestead exemptions vary from state to state.

Employment Status

It is important to remember that ultimately borrowers are asking for a large sum of money. Just as if a  friend/family member were to ask you to borrow money – you would want to ensure that they are able  to pay you back. Creditors want to ensure that borrowers have steady employment with consistent  paychecks to ensure that the payments can be made. A 2-year work history is often used as well as a  month of paystubs. This can be cross referenced with your W2s and tax transcripts to ensure that you  have steady employment.

Down Payments

A big misconception with home purchases is that you have to have a 20% down payment in order to buy  a home. There are multiple loan programs out there that offer lower to no down payment options. Yes,  it is true that to avoid mortgage insurance premiums (MIP) you do have to put 20% down, but that  doesn’t mean that you can’t buy a home.

DATE THE RATE, MARRY THE HOUSE!

This slogan captures a fresh way to look at the process of buying a house. There's no denying that we  are in turbulent times in regards to mortgage rates across the country. However, committing to the  house does not mean you have to commit to the current rate forever. Savvy homeowners will always  look for better financing availability. Should better rates and terms present themselves, they will jump  on the opportunity to refinance. If rates continue to get worse in the immediate future, you will be glad  you married the house when you did.
