  • How long will the mortgage process take?

The mortgage process depends on various factors. The lender will disclose the date of closing directly to the borrower.

  • What is an APR?

APR (Annual Percentage Rate) is defined as the annual cost of the loan and is expressed as a yearly rate. The APR is slightly higher than the interest rate on the loan, because it takes into account interest, points, origination fees and mortgage interest. Shopping for a loan based on APR alone is not advisable, because the calculations vary from lender to lender.

  • What are points?

Paying points is one way of reducing the interest rate on a mortgage. One point is equivalent to one percent of the loan amount. If you plan to live in your home for a long period, it makes sense to pay points up front, because the savings over time will be a considerable amount.

  • What is Loan to Value (LTV)?

Loan to value is calculated as: existing loan amount / current value of your home. The LTV is one of the factors that will determine whether or not you qualify for a loan and whether or not you will have to pay private mortgage insurance.

  • What is private mortgage insurance?

PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) has to be paid when a buyer puts down less than 20% as a down payment. A lender’s risk increases when the down payment amount decreases. PMI protects the lender against default on the mortgage.

  • Which is better : a fixed rate mortgage or an adjustable rate mortgage?

Though adjustable rate mortgages offer lower interest rates than fixed rate mortgages, they may fluctuate every month, or every 6 months or every year. ARMs are suitable for those who do not plan to stay for long in their home, while a fixed rate mortgage is ideal for long-term homeowners.
