Oil Region Realty, LLC can help you apply for your home loan in Oil City.

A lot of buyers think that applying for the loan is one of the most demanding aspects of buying a home, but it doesn't have to be. I have a close business relationship with several lenders in Oil City, and they've helped me recognize some things that will make the process of applying for a loan easy.

1 – Compile a list of questions about your loan program

Make sure you bring a list of questions with you if you do not entirely realize the ins and outs of the different programs. I or one of my trusted lenders will assist you with understanding the advantages and disadvantages of each one, because it can be a challenge to know the distinctions between both fixed and adjustable rate mortgages.

2 – Determine when to lock

Locking in an interest rate designates that the lender guarantees the mortgage interest rates for the loan – typically 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. Buyers who elect to float believe that the interest rates will decline in the near future.

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

Oftentimes you can choose to pay additional points to lower the interest rate of your mortgage loan. Each point is 1 percent of the mortgage loan and is payable in cash at closing. Click here to use our points calculator. This tool will assist you with deciding if buying points is right for you.
