The good news is that your tax refund can help to pay for some of these expenses. SmartAsset estimates that the average American will receive $1,798 in tax refunds this year. Below is a map that shows how your refund check can benefit you as a homebuyer. Here are some tips for homebuyers who are receiving a refund this tax year. Your tax refund can be used to help you save more money.
Payment of closing costs – Before you can take possession of your home, you will need to pay fees to your lender, agent, and any other parties involved in the transaction. These closing costs could be funded by your tax refund.
Lowering your interest rates – Your lender may offer you the chance to purchase a lower mortgage interest rate during your homebuying process. This means that you might pay upfront to get a lower fixed-rate mortgage interest rate.
