Are you financing your new home? KELLER WILLIAMS REALTY LANDMARK can help.Securing the loan is one of the most demanding parts of purchasing a home. But it doesn’t have to be. Having connections to some mortgage lenders in the vaious areas has helped me learn a lot of the things that can make the process of applying for a loan a snap.

1 – Make a list of questions about your loan programBe sure you bring a list of questions with you if you find that you don’t completely grasp the advantages and disadvantages of the different programs. I or one of my trusted lenders can assist you with understanding the advantages and disadvantages of each program, because it’s hard to understand the differences between both fixed and adjustable rate mortgages.
2 – Determine when you want to lockWhen you lock in the rate, it indicates that the mortgage lender commits to the interest rates for the loan – usually at the time the loan application is sent in. By floating the rate, you can lock the rate at any time between the day of your loan application and at the time of closing. Buyers who prefer to float think interest rates will fall in the near future. Click here to see the outlook for the next 90 days of interest rates.
