Short Application

When you complete the short application above, your application is sent to a network of national and regional lenders. You'll be contacted by lenders offering quotes and competing for your business. When receiving mortgage quotes, it's important to understand how to compare the different offers from lenders. You'll see such things as Annual Percentage Rate (APR) and the Note rate as well as estimated closing costs. Those costs should include all title, escrow or attorneys fees and any other non-recurring fees associated with your loan, with exception of your current loan payoff, which is unknown during the application.

Ask you loan officer for loan details and a good faith estimate

You'll want to know such things as whether or not there is a prepayment penalty or not. Make sure that you receive a Good Faith estimate of closing costs. This estimate should closely resemble the costs of the actual loan at closing, assuming nothing has changed during the process, such as changing the loan program or the rate lock.

Getting Mortgage Quotes from more than one lender is important when searching for a mortgage. Three or four lenders is usually adequate when searching for a mortgage quote. More than that, and you may be overwhelmed or confused.

The competitive mortgage environment makes the process of finding the best mortgage quote fairly simple if you know the right questions to ask your lender


Remember, the basic questions you should ask are:

  1. How much are the closing costs?
  2. What is the Note Rate?
  3. What is the APR?
  4. What type of loan is it (i.e. 5/1 ARM or 30 year fixed)?
  5. Is there a prepayment penalty and what are those terms if so?
  6. Is the rate Locked?

These are the basic questions but there are several more that may be required to nail down the right choice.

If you are searching for a mortgage in the USA, complete the application above and you'll get rate quotes from up to 4 top lenders. It is simple and efficient.
