When purchasing a home, applying for the loan is exasperating for a lot of people, but it doesn't have to be.
Being close with some mortgage lenders in the Denton area has helped me recognize a few things that can make the process of applying for a loan very easy.
1 – Assemble a list of questions regarding your loan program
Make sure you have a list of questions with you if you do not thoroughly comprehend the ins and outs of the various loan programs.
I or one of my lender contacts will be able to help you understand the advantages and disadvantages of each program, because it is a challenge to understand the characteristics of fixed and adjustable rate mortgages.
2 – Decide when to lock
When you lock in the interest rate, a 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 anytime between the day of your loan application and issuance of closing documents. Those who decide to float presume interest rates will plunge in the near future. Click here to see the outlook for the next 90 days of interest rates.
3 – Determine if you want to pay additional points to lower your interest rate
When you elect to pay additional points to lower the interest rate of your mortgage loan, you'll pay for them in cash at closing. Every point is 1 percent of the loan.
