Feeling lots of anxiety over applying for a mortgage? You don't have to be. I've got great connections to various mortgage lenders in Danbury, and they've helped me recognize some things that make the process of applying for a loan a breeze.

1 – Compile a list of questions about your loan program

If you do not thoroughly understand the pros and cons of all the various loan programs, make sure you bring a list of questions. It is often hard to know the distinctions between both fixed and adjustable rate mortgages. I or one of my lender contacts can assist you with understanding the advantages and disadvantages of both.

2 – Determine when you want to lock

When you lock in a rate, your lender is sure to commit to the interest rates for the loan – generally at the time the loan application is submitted. By floating the rate, you can lock the rate at any time between application and at the time of closing. Those who choose to float believe that interest rates will drop in the near future.

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

Usually you can opt to pay additional points to lower the rate of your loan. Each point is 1 percent of the mortgage loan and is payable in cash at closing. If you're uncertain if buying points is the best option for you, click here to use our points calculator.
