Applying for the loan is one of the most demanding elements of buying a house, but it doesn't have to be.
Having connections to several lending companies in Elizabethtown has helped me learn a few things that can make the process of applying for a loan a snap.
1 – Assemble a list of questions about your loan program
Be sure to bring a list of questions if you don't entirely comprehend the ins and outs of the various programs.
It is a challenge to understand the distinctions between both fixed and adjustable rate mortgages. I or one of my trusted lenders will be able to assist you with understanding the advantages and disadvantages of each one.
2 – Determine when you want to lock
When you lock in a rate, the lender is sure to commit to the interest rates for the loan – normally at the time the loan application is submitted.
By floating the rate, you can lock the rate at any time between the day you apply for the loan and at the time of closing. Buyers who choose to float presume that the interest rates will dip 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 opt to pay additional points to lower the rate of your loan, you'll do so by paying for them in cash at closing. Every point is 1 percent of the loan.
