Do i have lowest interest rate mortgage?
Today’s historically low interest rates make now the perfect time to purchase a new home or refinance.
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.
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.
To be approved at the lowest mortgage rates, borrowers do not need to have the highest credit score. In addition, the consumers need a reasonable debt-to-income ratio. Most lenders will qualify borrowers at a maximum of 50 percent of overall debt to household gross monthly income. Some borrowers with significant assets or income will be able to qualify even with slightly lower credit scores or higher debt.
Low mortgage rates result in lower monthly payments which can save you thousands of dollars off the life of the loan.
