How are interest rates determined?
Interest rates are influenced by the financial markets and can change daily – or multiple times within the same day. The changes are based on many different economic indicators in the financial markets.
How much do I need for a down payment?
There are many different programs available to you. Our conventional mortgage loan programs require a minimum of 5% down with closing costs and pre-paid items. We also offer programs for eligible applications to pay only 3% down. Schedule an appointment with us for more information.
What are closing costs, and how much will they be?
Closing costs will vary by state, property type, and credit. Included in the cost are taxes and government fees, legal services, fees to the lender for processing, and other fees. The borrower must also pay for certain pre-paid items such as daily interest and homeowner’s insurance.
What is the difference between pre-qualification and pre-approval?
Mortgage loan borrowers apply for pre-qualification while they are searching for a home. Pre-qualification allows you and sellers to estimate how much you can afford.
