Although the data show that half of all home sales and purchases in 2023 will be made without a mortgage, there are many who need external financial support to buy a home, especially if it is a first-time purchase.
What is the amount of the house that can be financed?
To grant a mortgage, the financial entity takes the lower of the sales value and the appraised value, that is to say, if the appraisal is higher than the sales value, the percentage to be financed will be on the sales value and not on the appraised value.
The most common is to grant between 60% and 80% of the appraised value, as long as the installment to be paid does not exceed between 30% and 40% of the buyer’s debt capacity.
Based on these data, in some cases it may be possible to negotiate and obtain up to 100% of the appraised value.
The most difficult thing is to know, according to your economic situation, which financial institutions can grant you financing and, among these, who can grant you the most favorable for your interests.
At this point, it is important not to be confused by the demands of linking the mortgage to other financial products, a normal practice in lending institutions.
Before you make an offer on a property, it is imperative that you know your real chances of obtaining adequate financing.
