“From the beginning to the end of our escrow, everyone on the Gaylord-Hansen Mortgage Team was absolutely amazing! In our previous home purchase, we had a horrible experience with our lender and were very apprehensive going forward. But everyone we worked with (especially Amanda & Asia) was professional, helpful, and always available! We felt supported every step of the way and everyone was just so kind and easy to work with! I would HIGHLY recommend this team to anyone going forward!!! We couldn't be more happy with the Gaylord-Hansen Mortgage Team!”

A home appraisal is a monetary valuation of the property. The reason for an appraisal is to ensure that the collateral value (the home) justifies the loan amount the bank is lending to you. The appraiser’s job is to be unbiased and completely independent of the transaction, while at the same time being realistic and practical. The appraiser’s valuation is his or her professional opinion of what the property is worth.
The notion that an excess of credit inquiries from mortgage lenders will lower your score is a common misconception. FICO, a scoring model required by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, has logic in place that protects consumers’ credit scores from any negative impact caused by multiple inquiries as a result of rate shopping. Inquiries for mortgage loans that are less than 30 days old are ignored and have no impact. Inquiries older than 30 days are looked at, but multiple inquiries from mortgage lenders made within 45 days of one another are treated as one inquiry.
After the mortgage meltdown, the mortgage industry tightened restrictions in order to minimize the amount of home loan defaults. Being prepared and producing quick documentation up front is the best way to avoid unnecessary stress or financing delays.
The interest rate is the cost you will pay each year to borrow money, expressed as a percentage rate. The APR (Annual Percentage Rate) is a calculation based on standardized federal regulations. It provides a more complete picture by taking the interest rate as a starting point and accounting for the fees required to finance the mortgage loan. It expresses the actual yearly cost over the term of the loan.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development states that the lender has 30 calendar days to return these unused funds to you.
The best time of year to get a mortgage is in December.
