Bay Harbor Islands Mortgage Rates
FHA World Florida - Bay Harbor Islands Mortgage
One of the most popular types of mortgages is the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage. This loan is usually the easiest to qualify for and provides the maximum interest deduction at tax time. The
interest rate stays the same over the life of the loan which provides unchanging low monthly payments.
Over time, borrowers gain equity in the home as they pay down the principal or actual loan amount. For borrowers who intend on staying in the house for a long time this mortgage is particularly
helpful and practical. A disadvantage of the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is paying more interest over time than shorter period.
Current Mortgage Rates

No matter what the economy looks like, mortgage rates change on a daily, even hourly, basis. Rate fluctuations can cost or save you thousands of dollars. With that in mind, the question when
shopping for a loan is whether it's best to lock in a rate or float the loan. Either way, there's risk.
It's your choice the rate-lock option means a borrower fixes the price at the current mortgage rates, provided he or she finalizes the loan within a specified period. The upside is that you are
protected against a potential mortgage rate increase. But if the rate goes down, you could end up paying more than necessary. The "float" option, by contrast, allows the borrower to adopt a
wait-and-see approach. The risk remains, though: If rates do rise, you wind up losing money.
Locking current mortgage rates is a good idea if rates are on an upward trend, so take time to understand the market when you're shopping for a home loan. If prices aren't fluctuating by much, or
if they're moving downward, it would be better not to lock. Locks typically last for 30, 45, 60 days or more. The longer you lock, though, the more likely it is that you'll have to pay a fee for

Not everyone can take advantage of the opportunity to refinance or qualify for a new home loan due to today’s tightened credit guidelines.
To be approved at the lowest mortgage rates, borrowers do not need to have the highest credit scores. In addition, the consumers need a reasonable debt-to-income ratio. Most lenders will qualify

Generally, a borrower who has made timely payments for the last 12 months serves as a guide and demonstrates their willingness to repay future credit obligations. New FHA Policy changes require
minimum FICO score to be 600 for 85% loan-to-value. These FICO requirements will go into effect in the spring 2010. However, most individual lenders will still require credit scores higher than
