For most people, applying for a mortgage loan can be one of the more demanding parts of buying a house, but it doesn't have to be.
Being connected to a lot of lending companies in the Albuquerque area has helped me understand a few things that will make the loan application process easy.
1 – Create a list of questions regarding your loan program
If you find that you don't perfectly comprehend the pros and cons of the different programs, make sure you have a list of questions.
I or one of my trusted lenders will assist you with understanding the advantages and disadvantages of both programs, because it's a challenge to know the distinctions between both fixed and adjustable rate mortgages.
2 – Determine when to lock
By locking in an interest rate, your mortgage lender is keeping to the interest rates for the loan – commonly at the time the loan application is received.
By floating the rate, you can lock the rate at any time between application and at the time of closing. Those who choose to float think that interest rates will drop in the near future. Click here to see the outlook for the next 90 days of interest rates.
