Let Westbank Realty assist you in applying for a home loan.

When purchasing a home, the mortgage loan application is very exasperating for most people, but it doesn't have to be. Being familiar with many lenders in Austin has helped me learn some things that can make the loan application process very easy.

1 – Assemble a list of questions regarding your loan program

If you find that you don't totally realize the ins and outs of all the different loan programs, be sure you have a list of questions with you. At times, it can be hard to know the differences between fixed and adjustable rate mortgages. One of my lender contacts or I will be able to assist you in understanding the advantages and disadvantages of each program.

2 – Determine when you want to lock

When you lock in an interest rate, the lender is guaranteed to commit to the mortgage interest rates for the loan – commonly at the time the loan application is presented. By floating the rate, you can lock the rate anytime between the day you apply for your loan and the issuing of closing documents. Those who choose to float think that interest rates will drop in the near future. Click here to see the outlook for the next 90 days of interest rates.
