Feeling lots of anxiety over getting financing for a home purchase? You don't have to be. I have excellent relationships with several mortgage lenders in Palm City, and they've helped me recognize a few things that will make the process of applying for a loan easy.
1 – Organize a list of questions regarding your loan program
Make sure to have a list of questions if you find that you do not fully understand the pros and cons of the different programs. Oftentimes, it can be a challenge to know the characteristics of fixed and adjustable rate mortgages. One of my lender contacts or I will assist you with understanding the advantages and disadvantages of each one.
2 – Determine when you want to lock
By locking in the interest rate, your lender is committing to the mortgage 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 the issuing of closing documents. Buyers who choose to float presume the interest rates will drop in the near future. Click here to see the outlook for the next 90 days of interest rates.
