When purchasing a home, applying for a loan is very distressing for most people, but it doesn't have to be.
Being familiar with various lenders in Ackerman has helped me recognize some things that will make the loan application process much easier.
1 – Assemble a list of questions about your loan program
If you do not completely realize the advantages and disadvantages of all the various financing options, be sure to have a list of questions.
At times, it can be a challenge to know the characteristics of both fixed and adjustable rate mortgages. I or one of my lenders can assist you in understanding the advantages and disadvantages of each program.
2 – Decide when you want to lock
When you lock in the interest rate, it signifies that a mortgage lender holds to the mortgage interest rates for the loan – typically at the time the loan application is sent in.
By floating the rate, you can lock the rate anytime between the loan application day and at the time of closing. Those who decide to float think that interest rates will plunge in the near future. Click here to see the outlook for the next 90 days of interest rates.
