Determine how much you can borrow...

A preapproval is a big first step towards getting a mortgage. It shows sellers that you’re a serious buyer and allows you to understand how much you can borrow and what kind of payment you can expect. The preapproval process starts with verifying your income, credit, assets, and liabilities to determine how much you can borrow. Our team of dedicated professionals will guide you through the entire process step by step so you can get preapproved and look for homes that are in your price range. Being preapproved also puts you in a better position when negotiating and allows you to close on your loan even quicker.

LTV and Debt-to-Income Ratios

LTV or loan-to-value is the maximum amount that a lender is willing to lend for the purchase of your home. (ex: $100,000 home value x (times) 80%LTV = (equals) $80,000 mortgage loan). Lenders will traditionally lend a higher percentage of the homes value, even up to 100% for creditworthy borrowers. Another consideration is the debt-to-income ratios, which is the ratio of your monthly debts payments (such as auto and personal loans) to your income. the rule of thumb states that your monthly mortgage payments should not exceed 1/3 of your gross monthly income. Whereas, borrowers that have a higher debt-to-income ratio will need to pay a higher down payment in order to to qualify for a lower LTV ratio.

Source of Downpayment...

When it comes to a mortgage, lenders expect borrowers to come up with a sufficient amount of cash for the down payment and closing costs at the time of funding the loan. These funds usually come from a borrower’s savings, however, if the borrower does not have the required funds, they may receive gift funds from an acceptable donor. The donor must provide a signed statement that the funds do not have to be paid back. Other sources of downpayment may include home equity loans, 401(k) plans, and other sources of liquid assets. Regardless of the source of funds, lenders must verify the source and the amount of the downpayment.

Fixed Rate Mortgage

Fixed-rate mortgages provide borrowers with a loan amount and a set interest rate that will remain the same over the life of the loan. This type of loan is ideal for those who want to keep their monthly payments the same and don't plan on moving or refinancing anytime soon.

 

Adjustable Rate Mortgage

Adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs) give borrowers the option to choose a lower interest rate with the risk of the rate increasing over time. ARMs are a good choice for those who plan to move or refinance in the future, and are willing to take on the risk of a variable rate.
