1 – Organize a list of questions regarding your loan program

I or one of my trusted lenders will be able to assist you in understanding the advantages and disadvantages of each.

2 – Determine when you want to lock

When you lock in the interest rate, the mortgage lender is sure to keep to the mortgage interest rates for the loan – often at the time the loan application is sent in.
