Let Re/Max Real Estate Ten help you with financing a new home in Morristown.

When purchasing a home, the loan application is very exasperating for many people, but it doesn't have to be. We have close professional relationships with many mortgage lenders in Morristown, and they've helped us recognize some things that can make the process of applying for a loan easy.

1 – Create a list of questions about your loan program

Be sure to have a list of questions if you find that you do not perfectly grasp the ins and outs of all the various programs. One of our trusted lenders or staff will be able to assist you with understanding the advantages and disadvantages of each one, because it's hard to understand the differences between both fixed and adjustable rate mortgages.

2 – Determine when to lock

Locking in indicates that the lender holds to the interest rates for the loan – commonly at the time the loan application is received. By floating the rate, you can lock the rate anytime between application and closing. Those who decide to float conclude that the interest rates will drop in the near future.

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

When you choose to pay additional points to lower the interest rate of your loan, you'll do so by paying for them in cash at the time of closing. Every point is 1 percent of the mortgage loan. If you're uncertain if purchasing points is the best option for you, click here to use our points calculator.
