SmartMoney Monday: Buying a new home

SmartMoney Monday: Buying a new home

This month in SmartMoney Monday, the topic is about buying a home. Whether you have already purchased a home before or if you are a first time home buyer, there are probably a lot of questions that you may have.

What does go into closing costs and is it possible for a borrower to negotiate with the lender on those costs? Does an old bankruptcy have an impact on my qualifying for a new home? And what about all those fees?

Cindy Okamura is Assistant Vice President and Loan Center Manager at Bank of Hawaii's Pearlridge branch and spoke with Steve Uyehara about your questions and concerns about buying that new dream home.
