Mortgage Loan Types
It's difficult to compare rates on the different types of Virginia mortgages without understanding how each loan type works. FRMs have an unchanging interest rate and fixed monthly payment. Most often, FRMs mature in 30 years; but lower rate, 15-year programs are also common. ARMs offer a low rate and low payment in the early months of the loan, but are subject to rate increases over time. Second mortgages can carry a fixed or adjustable interest rate.
Refinancing an existing mortgage can help you consolidate higher cost debt, provide you with a lump sum of cash, or lower your payment. Consolidating or cashing out requires that you borrow more than you owe on your current mortgage. This can be done if you have built up equity since purchasing the home. Lowering your payment is a possibility if Virginia's market rates are below the rate that you're currently paying. If market rates are the same or higher than your existing mortgage, look into lengthening the loan's maturity to reduce your payment.
You'll find the best rate on your Virginia mortgage loan if you comparison shop. Here are the steps to follow:
- Review/compare market rates
- Browse Virginia lenders and brokers
- Calculate payments and amortization tables for different loan types
- Contact lenders and brokers to request quotes
Lastly, while you're researching your options, keep these points in mind:
- Use advertised interest rates as a guideline only. These are reserved for borrowers with strong credit histories. To get a feel for how your credit history can affect your rate, browse Virginia rates by credit quality here.
- You won't receive a written statement of terms until after you submit a loan application.
- Some loan quotes may not be directly comparable to others. Using your written statement of terms, check the loan structures carefully. Look for differences in upfront payments and amortization schedules
