For many people, applying for mortgage financing is one of the most distressing parts of buying a house. But it doesn't have to be.
I have excellent relationships with several lenders in Henderson, and they've helped me learn some things that will make the process of applying for a loan a breeze.
1 – Put together a list of questions regarding your loan program
If you find that you do not perfectly understand the pros and cons of all the different financing options, be sure you have a list of questions.
Oftentimes, it can be a challenge to know the characteristics of both fixed and adjustable rate mortgages. I or one of my lenders will assist you with understanding the advantages and disadvantages of both.
2 – Decide when you want to lock
By locking in the rate, your mortgage lender is guaranteeing the interest rates for the loan – often at the time the loan application is submitted.
By floating the rate, you can lock the rate at any time between the day of your loan application and the issuing of closing documents. Those who decide to float believe that the interest rates will plunge in the near future. Click here to see the outlook for the next 90 days of interest rates.
3 – Decide if you want to pay additional points to decrease your rate
If you choose to pay additional points to lower the interest rate of your mortgage loan, you will do so by paying for them in cash at closing. Each point is 1 percent of the mortgage loan.
