Do you want to buy a new home? If so, do you know how to start? If not, you should check out Bank of the West. Bank of the West Releases Homebuyer Videos for consumers to educate themselves about the home-buying process. Many of the videos talk about a variety of topics including, but not limited to credit scores, loan costs, and proper documentation. Each video is hosted by the head of Bank of the West’s team of mortgage bankers, Karen Mayfield.
“This housing market has really become a seller’s market, so homebuyers need to prepare themselves as much as possible before they start shopping for a home. We created these Mortgages In Brief videos to help educate consumers so they are informed and confident homebuyers,” Karen said. In the new videos, Karen responds to some of the most common inquiries buyers have about purchasing a home: “What should I know about my credit score?” “Do I have enough for a down payment?” “What if I don’t have the cash to put down 20%?” “What documents will I need at closing?” and “ What closing costs should I expect?” To learn more and receive updates, please check out Bank of the West’s Youtube channel.
