@Christopher Figueroa congratulations on moving forward! The loan figures seem standard for a purchase in this area. The appraisal will be ordered by your lender and that will give the appraiser's opinion of the value of the home, which is what your mortgage company will base your loan on. They will loan a percentage (usually 75-80% on an investment property) of the appraised value or contract price. Good luck!!

I'm also trying to get my first loan and here's the best figures I've gotten so far so those look pretty good to me.  I'm under contract for a 6 family in Asbury Park, NJ.

Unfortunately, the seller had multiple outstanding fines/penalties that he failed to pay for many months and refused to do so to complete the closing.  Ultimately I was advised to offer the seller a buyout option to cancel the contract, which he agreed to, and ultimately only paid me 50% of the amount.

I'm no longer in contract but do have a lien on the property for the amount he owes me.  Sadly, it turned out to be a complete waste of time for all involved due to the seller's unwillingness to complete any of the tasks required and failure to pay his outstanding debts.
