Barndominium Financing Tip | Least Amount of Cash To Closing

This simple tip can help you save how much cash you need to bring to the closing table when you finance your barndominium build. However, it's important to note that this approach may not always be applicable to every situation, nor is it always recommended if you have the funds to put more money down on your down payment.

One of the main components of this tactic is that your house has to appraise higher than the initial loan amount, and you should desire some extra cash after your build is complete. To keep things simple, if you have the funds, it's recommended to put down 20% to avoid PMI (private mortgage insurance) and ensure your total loan amount is lower, ultimately resulting in less interest paid overtime. However, in today's economy, you may not have the capacity to save enough for the 20%, or perhaps you don't want to wait until you do. Especially considering that some lenders offer a 5% down option.

With money being tight, this tactic can help you bring less cash to the closing table by rolling those fees into the mortgage.
