For a lot of people, applying for mortgage financing can be one of the most distressing elements of buying a house, but it doesn't have to be. Having connections with several lending companies in the Lawton area has helped me understand some things that can make the process of applying for a loan pretty simple.

1 – Create a list of questions about your loan program

If you find that you do not completely comprehend the pros and cons of the different programs, be sure to bring a list of questions with you. It's hard to understand the characteristics of fixed and adjustable rate mortgages. I or one of my lenders will assist you with understanding the advantages and disadvantages of both.

2 – Decide when you want to lock

Locking in the interest rate designates that the lender commits to the interest rates for the loan – ordinarily at the time the loan application is sent in. By floating the rate, you can lock the rate anytime between the day of your loan application and closing. Buyers who opt to float believe interest rates will fall in the near future.
