Applying for a new home loan

When buying a home, the loan application is very troublesome for a lot of people, but it doesn't have to be. Having connections with some lenders in Beverly Hills has helped me recognize some things that will make the loan application process effortless.

1 – Assemble a list of questions regarding your loan program

Be sure you bring a list of questions with you if you find that you do not completely grasp the pros and cons of the various loan programs. One of my trusted lenders or I can help you understand the advantages and disadvantages of both programs, because it is hard to know the characteristics of both fixed and adjustable rate mortgages.

2 – Determine when to lock

When you lock in the rate, your lender is guaranteed to keep to the interest rates for the loan – generally at the time the loan application is sent in. By floating the rate, you can lock the rate at any time between the day you apply for your loan and closing. Those who opt to float believe the interest rates will plunge in the near future.

3 – Decide if you want to pay additional points to reduce your interest rate

Oftentimes you can elect to pay additional points to lower the rate of your loan. Every point is 1 percent of the loan and is payable in cash at closing. If you're unsure if buying points is the best option for you, click here to use my points calculator.

4 – Bring your paperwork

Getting a mortgage loan requires lots of paperwork, so you should take some time to get all your documentation together. Click here to preview normal questions you'll have to answer on a loan app.
