Mortgage Rates Quotes Depend on Multiple Factors

Sammamish Mortgage makes use of an innovative software platform that provides you with an instant rate quote. The system does this by comparing multiple lenders and investors from across the US, providing real-time results. All you need to do to get your rate quote is to input a few pieces of information, and within seconds, you’ll receive an accurate breakdown of the interest rates and costs available for you. You won’t have to supply any personal information to obtain this data, either. The mortgage experts at Sammamish Mortgage always work to ensure that the best interests of our clients are always met.

Loan Purpose

The term “loan purpose” is used in the mortgage industry in the US to describe the reason why an applicant is looking to apply for a loan. The lender will use the purpose of the loan to make decisions on the risk level of the borrower. The loan purpose could also affect the interest rate offered by the lender. The most common examples include purchase, rate/term refinance (no cash-out refinance) and cash-out refinance.

Down Payment

The down payment refers to the equity amount that the buyer puts towards the purchase price of a home. For instance, a home being purchased for $500,000 with a $100,000 down payment means the buyer will have 20% equity in the new home. In general a larger down payment results in better rates and closing costs for your loan. Down payments below 20% usually require some form of mortgage insurance which would be an added cost to you. The exception is for VA financing.

Loan Amount

This term refers to the amount that the borrower must pay back to the lender as stipulated in the loan contract. The loan amount is one of the main factors in determining what rate and loan program you’ll be eligible for. For the most common loan programs such as conforming or FHA financing there are loan limits. Anything above those limits results in a borrower being ineligible for that program and subject to different rates and fees. In general VA loans have the best terms followed by conforming loans and select jumbo loans for really qualified borrowers or high net worth clients.

Credit Score

A credit score is a numerical figure that expresses the creditworthiness of a consumer. A higher credit score is better when it comes to taking out a loan, as it reduces the lender’s risk when loaning out funds. A credit score is affected by repayment history, number and age of open accounts, total debt levels, and credit utilization. Credit is a key deciding factor in determining what rates and costs you’re eligible for. High credit scores over 740 will get you the best rates available. Adjustments to the terms available for most loan programs occur in 20 point increments. For example the second best credit score range would be 720-739, then 700-719 and so on.  Once your scores drop below 640 the programs you will qualify for will be severely limited.

Purchase Price

The purchase price refers to the price that a buyer pays for a property.

Property type

Property type refers to the characteristics and configuration of a dwelling. For instance, detached homes, townhomes, and condos are all examples of different property types. Single Family Home will have the best terms when compared to other property types. Provided you put down more than 25% condos will be second best followed by multi-family 1-4 units. Properties like co-ops and manufactured homes will usually have higher rates and it will be more difficult to find lenders that will accept those property types.

Occupancy

Occupancy refers to the status of the people living in a home. For example, a home may be occupied by the owners, or by tenants who pay the owner rent in exchange for the right to live in the home. Owner Occupied homes will have the best rates followed by second homes (vacation homes that are not rented) and investment properties which include any property that does not fit the classification of a primary residence or second home. This includes rental properties, homes a family member occupies for free or a speculative property that is vacant.

Loan Program

A loan program or loan type refers to the type of loan being taken out to finance the purchase of a property. In the US, common mortgage loan programs include fixed-rate mortgages, variable-rate mortgages, conforming loans, FHA loans, and VA loans. Fixed-rate loans can come with different terms such as a 30 year fixed, 20 year or 15 year fixed. ARM’s or adjustable rate mortgages are usually fixed for a specified period of time and then adjust annually after the initial fixed rate period.

We recently bought our first home with a 30-year loan from Sammamish Mortgage. We had shopped around and their rates were quite competitive. Sandra and Suzanne were very helpful and patient. They made sure the whole process from application to financing went smoothly. Most importantly they promised and delivered on our very agressive 21-day loan closing window!

FAQ

How can Sammamish Mortgage offer such low rates and fees?

Since 1992 Sammamish Mortgage has offered excellent service at very competitive rates and fees. Over this time, our proven track record and quality loans have helped us build exceptional relationships with the lenders that provide you with home loans. These relationships have been built on trust, integrity, and most of all, exceptional business practices. Our long standing business partnerships allow us the ability to offer unrivaled pricing on home mortgages. This pricing, in addition to utilizing top of the line technology and low overhead, enables us to pass the savings on to you, our clients.

We do not have a large team of loan officers that require us to pay out large commissions. Instead we have a small team of highly experienced and trained professionals to handle your home loans.

When you show no points, does that also mean no origination fees and/or mortgage broker fees?

Yes. At Sammamish Mortgage you will find that anytime we offer or advertise no points, it assumes no origination fees. Many banks, credit unions and mortgage companies will advertise and offer no point loans on their website only to disclose later in the loan process or in fine print that there is a minimum 1% origination fee added to the loan. We feel that this is a deceptive practice and although it is legal, we feel strongly that it should not be allowed.

Do you guarantee your closing costs?

Yes. At the time of your pre-approval, we can guarantee all lender and 3rd party costs associated with your loan. Your costs may change if there is a valid change in circumstance such as a lower than expected appraised value, or if you decide to change your loan amount as your loan to value is a key factor in pricing your loan. Your loan specialist can go over all the different scenarios with you if you are unsure of your value on a refinance. We rarely have issues with the value on a purchase.

Who would benefit from choosing a loan with no points vs. paying points and/or origination fees?

Choosing a loan with 0 points/origination fees generally benefits the borrower for the first 4 to 7 years of the loan. This is because you exchange lower up front closing costs for a slightly higher interest rate and monthly payment. This is a great option for people that do not have excess liquid cash or emergency funds and people that are not sure how long they are planning on keeping the loan. Since most people either refinance or sell their home every 3 to 5 years, this plan can be of great value. When determining whether a no point, no origination fee and/or no mortgage broker fee loan would work for you, you have to carefully consider the following:

• How long you plan on staying in the property?

• Do you think that you might refinance in the near future?

• Do you have enough emergency funds saved to warrant paying higher up front costs?

If you are uncertain as to which is best for you, one of our loan specialists can assist you in making the decision that best suits your needs.

What are the main factors that can affect my interest rate?

There are several key points that can affect your rate. Below is a detailed breakdown of some attributing factors that may apply:

• Credit Score: Your credit score is one of the most important factors that will determine your rate.
• Loan to Value: Your down payment in a purchase transaction or your equity in a refinance transaction also plays a key role in determining your rate. The lower your loan to value (LTV), the better your rate may be.
• Rate/term refinance vs. Cash out refinance: A rate/term refinance has a loan amount that is just enough to repay the balance of your existing mortgage. You may include all third party fees, taxes, insurance and interest into the loan amount. A cash-out refinance, on the other hand, has a loan amount that exceeds your current mortgage balance.
• Purchase vs. Refinance: There are times when lenders offer purchase specials, which allow us to offer even lower rates than we already do.
• Property type: Often times there can be pricing adjustments for condos and multi-family properties.
• Escrow Reserve: Paying your property taxes and homeowners insurance on your own rather than having them included in your house payment may cost you an additional fee. Most lenders charge a onetime fee for the impound waiver.

• Loan amount: Your loan amount can affect your pricing. If you have a large loan amount (over $417,000) there will be pricing adjustments. If your loan amount is low, there can also be pricing adjustments generally starting at $165,000 and lower.

• Subordinate financing: Having a second mortgage or Home Equity Line of Credit tied to the property can impact the terms of the first mortgage even if no money is owed on the equity line. The line is still considered a lien against your property and impacts your Combined Loan to Value.

What can cause my loan to be considered a cash-out refinance?

The obvious trigger for a cash-out refinance is borrowing more than your existing loan balance; however, consolidating debt that was not obtained as part of the original purchase is also considered a cash-out refinance. This includes second mortgages or Home Equity Line of Credits opened after you purchased the property.
