When purchasing a home, applying for financing is a exasperating event for a lot of people, but it doesn't have to be.

It's a challenge to understand the differences between fixed and adjustable rate mortgages. I or one of my trusted lenders will be able to assist you with understanding the advantages and disadvantages of both programs.
2 – Determine when to lock
Locking in the interest rate denotes that the mortgage lender holds to the mortgage interest rates for the loan – most often at the time the loan application is submitted.
By floating the rate, you can lock the rate at any time between the day of your loan application and issuance of closing documents. Buyers who elect to float conclude that interest rates will fall in the near future. Click here to see the outlook for the next 90 days of interest rates.
