Since everyone’s financial situation is different, how do you know you’re getting the right mortgage strategy? Most people that have some form of investment or retirement account understand the need to manage their account differently throughout their lives. You need to look at your mortgage the same way. Your mortgage is the financial tool that is tied to one, if not your largest asset. Having the same mortgage strategy your entire life is not always the best financial decision.

When mortgage rates are 1.5% lower than the current rate on your loan. It may be a benefit even if the interest rate difference is only 1% or less. A rate reduction can reduce your monthly mortgage payments. Your savings depends on your income, budget, loan amount, and interest rate changes.

A rate lock gives you protection from financial market fluctuations that could affect your interest rate range. You can choose to lock or not lock your interest rate range. On the date and time you lock, that interest rate range remains available to you for a set period of time. If there are no subsequent changes to your loan and your interest rate range is locked, the interest rate range on your application generally remains the same. If there are changes to your loan, your final interest rate at closing may be different.
When your down payment is less than 20% of the purchase price of the home, the lenders usually require you get Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) to protect them in case you default on your mortgage payments. Sometimes you may need to pay up to 12 month’s worth of PMI premiums at closing which can be costly. The best way to avoid this expense is to make a 20% down payment, or ask about other loan program options that may be fit for you.
A credit score is one of the pieces of information that Fidelity Funding Bancorp uses to evaluate your application. Credit scores are based on information collected by credit bureaus and information reported each month by your creditors about the balances you owe and the timing of your payments. A credit score is a compilation of all this information converted into a number that helps a lender determine the likelihood that you will repay the loan on schedule. The credit score is calculated by the credit bureau, not by the lender. Credit scores are calculated by comparing your credit history with millions of other consumers. They have proven to be a very effective way of determining credit worthiness. Some of the things that affect your credit score include your payment history, your outstanding obligations, the length of time you have had outstanding credit, the types of credit you use and the number of inquiries that have been made about your credit history in the recent past. Credit scores used for mortgage loan decisions range from approximately 300 to 900. Generally, the higher your credit score, the lower the risk that your payments will not be paid as agreed. Using credit scores to evaluate your credit history allows Fidelity Funding Bancorp to quickly and objectively evaluate your credit history when reviewing your loan application. However, there are many other factors when making a loan decision and we never evaluate an application without looking at the total financial picture of a customer.
Your interest rate is the monthly cost you pay on the unpaid balance of your home loan. An Annual Percentage Rate (APR) includes both your interest rate and any additional cost or prepaid finance charges such as the origination fee, points, private mortgage insurance, underwriting and processing fees. (Your actual fees may not include all of the items above.) While your interest rate is the rate at which you will make your monthly mortgage payments, the APR is a universal measurement that can assist you in comparing the cost of mortgage loans offered by different mortgage lenders.
A pre-payment penalty is a fee charged to the borrower for paying off their mortgage early. A pre-payment penalty is usually attached to a loan in exchange for a slightly lower rate. Pre-payment penalties benefit lenders by discouraging refinancing if rates fall. In theory, this guarantees a higher rate of return on the money lent. Pre-payment penalties are typically a percentage of the outstanding balance at the time of the pre-payment, or sometimes a specified number of months of interest. However, loans differ on how they structure the pre-payment penalties. We recommend you think twice before agreeing to a pre-payment penalty. No matter how enticing that lower rate, in the long run, you’ll probably be better off paying the higher rate. Why? Because statistics show it’s likely you’ll be refinancing or moving long before you’ve paid off your mortgage.
