When purchasing a home, applying for a mortgage loan is troublesome for a lot of people, but it doesn't have to be. I've got great connections to a lot of mortgage lenders in Plymouth, and they've helped me understand some things that will make the loan application process uncomplicated.

1 – Make a list of questions regarding your loan program

Be sure to bring a list of questions if you find that you do not totally grasp the pros and cons of all the various programs. It's hard to know the differences between both fixed and adjustable rate mortgages. I or one of my trusted lenders can assist you with understanding the advantages and disadvantages of both.

2 – Determine when to lock

By locking in the rate, the lender is guaranteeing the mortgage interest rates for the loan – usually at the time the loan application is submitted. By floating the rate, you can lock the rate at any time between application and closing. Those who opt to float think that interest rates will decline in the near future.

3 – Decide if you want to pay additional points to reduce your interest rate

If you decide to pay additional points to lower the interest rate of your loan, you'll pay for them in cash at closing. Every point is 1 percent of the loan. Click here to use our points calculator. This tool will assist you in deciding if purchasing points is the best option for you.
