I am in the process of getting ready to close on my first home. I received a copy of the settlement statement today and it does not have the 3% down payment indicated on it as a payment that needs to be made. This is making the amount needed to close 4000 dollars cheaper than it would be if it was noted on there. Is this a mistake on their part?
The "down payment" is created by the gap between the base loan amount and the sales price. If the sales price is correct and the loan amount is correct, and you believe you are short funds to close, could it be because you put down earnest money which is being applied towards your down payment?
