Are you thinking about financing a home? We can help.

Feeling lots of anxiety over getting financing for a home purchase? You don't have to be. I have close professional relationships with some reputable mortgage lenders in Orlando, and they've helped me learn some things that will make the loan application process a snap.

1 – Assemble a list of questions about your loan program

Make sure to have a list of questions if you find that you don't completely grasp the pros and cons of the various programs. It is often a challenge understanding the distinctions between both fixed and adjustable rate mortgages. I or one of my lender contacts can assist you in understanding the advantages and disadvantages of each program.

2 – Determine when you want to lock

Locking in the interest rate designates that the lender keeps to the interest rates for the loan – typically at the time the loan application is presented. By floating the rate, you can lock the rate at any time between application and at the time of closing. Buyers who opt to float presume that interest rates will plunge in the near future.
