Thinking about financing a home in Rock Hill? Petrovich Realty can help.
Applying for the loan is one of the most distressing elements of purchasing a house, but it doesn't have to be.
Being close to several lenders in the Rock Hill area has helped me understand some things that will make the process of applying for a loan easy.
1 – Put together a list of questions regarding your loan program
If you find that you don't completely understand the advantages and disadvantages of all the different loan programs, be sure you have a list of questions with you.
I or one of my trusted lenders can assist you in understanding the advantages and disadvantages of both programs, because it is hard to know the characteristics of fixed and adjustable rate mortgages.
2 – Determine when to lock
Locking in denotes that the lender keeps to the mortgage interest rates for the loan – commonly at the time the loan application is received.
By floating the rate, you can lock the rate anytime between the loan application day and closing. Buyers who choose to float conclude that interest rates will plunge in the near future. Click here to see the outlook for the next 90 days of interest rates.
3 – Decide if you want to pay additional points to lower your interest rate
Typically you can decide to pay additional points to lower the rate of your loan. Each point is 1 percent of the mortgage loan and is payable in cash at the time of closing.
