Are you financing your new home in Davie?
For a lot of people, securing the loan can be one of the more demanding aspects of buying a home. But it doesn't have to be. Being familiar with some lending companies in the Davie area has helped us learn a lot of the things that make the process of applying for a loan a breeze.
1 – Put together a list of questions regarding your loan program
Be sure you bring a list of questions with you if you don't thoroughly grasp the ins and outs of the various loan programs. One of our lender contacts or staff will help you understand the advantages and disadvantages of each program, because it is hard to know the characteristics of both fixed and adjustable rate mortgages.
2 – Determine when you want to lock
Locking in a rate designates that the mortgage lender commits to the mortgage interest rates for the loan – often at the time the loan application is received. By floating the rate, you can lock the rate anytime between the day of your loan application and issuance of closing documents. Those who opt to float presume interest rates will fall in the near future. Click here to see the outlook for the next 90 days of interest rates.
