To help determine the best Orange County home loan option for you, consider the following questions:How important is it knowing your exact monthly payment with no surprises?
If you want to know exactly what your monthly payment is then you should consider a fixed-rate mortgage.Is it important to build up equity as fast as possible?
If rapid equity buildup is important to you, then consider a shorter amortization period and loan term, such as a 15-year, fixed-rate mortgage.Will your income increase and/or stabilize in the near future?
If your income will increase very soon, then you could take advantage of a lower start rate on an adjustable rate mortgage or a temporary buy down. While this can be risky, if it fits your financial goals and current situation, it can work to your advantage.Other factors you should consider are:
Your credit score and ability to qualify at market rates for the loan amount you need.
How long do you plan to live at your new home?
The possibility of significant rate changes.Typical Questions When Applying For A Purchase Loan
What is the loan amount you need to purchase your home?
How much do you have for a down payment?
What is your credit score?
