Refinance

  

How Low Can You Go?

The interest rate you pay on your mortgage depends on a number of factors including:

next icon
Current market conditions
next icon
Your credit score
next icon
Your down payment amount
next icon
Your type of mortgage

The bottom line is that the better your financial shape, the better chance you will have of securing the lowest rate in a refinance. To understand your “fiscal fitness,” start by looking at yourself as a lender would and consider your:

next icon
Credit score: Don’t just look at your score, but the history that goes into calculating it – things like late payments, the length of your credit history and credit inquiries. Where possible, address and correct any issues to help improve your score.
next icon
Loan-to-Value Ratio (LTV): : The LTV is the difference between your requested loan amount and your home’s appraised value. A higher LTV often means a higher interest rate.
next icon
Debt-to-Income Ratio: This ratio is a measurement of your overall debt – credit cards, auto loans, etc. – against how much you earn. As with LTV, you want this number to be as low as possible, as a lender will consider it when determining if you can get the best interest rate and, most importantly, a mortgage.
