Are you going to finance your home?

Feeling lots of anxiety over applying for a mortgage? You don't have to be. Being connected with some lending companies in Edmond has helped us realize a lot of the things that will make the process of applying for a loan very manageable.

1 – Organize a list of questions about your loan program

If you find that you do not thoroughly comprehend the ins and outs of all the various programs, be sure you bring a list of questions with you. One of our lenders or staff can assist you with understanding the advantages and disadvantages of each one, because it's a challenge to understand the differences between both fixed and adjustable rate mortgages.

2 – Decide when you want to lock

Locking in the rate denotes that your mortgage lender guarantees the interest rates for the loan – normally at the time the loan application is sent in. By floating the rate, you can lock the rate at any time between the day you apply for your loan and at the time of closing. Those who opt to float conclude the interest rates will dip in the near future. Click here to see the outlook for the next 90 days of interest rates.
