APR stands for “Annual Percentage Rate” and represents the price you pay to borrow money. APR is a broader measure than interest rate because it includes the interest rate plus other costs such as lender fees, closing costs and insurance. You can use APR to compare loans offered by different lenders when shopping for a mortgage loan.
For example, based on a purchase price of $500,000; loan amount of $400,000 (20% down payment; 80% loan-to-value); interest rate of 4.00% and 1.00% points, the monthly principal and interest payment on a 30-year fixed rate mortgage would be $1,909.66 and an APR of 4.119%. Keep in mind your mortgage loan monthly payment will be higher as lenders typically include proerpty tax and insurance costs.
Getting pre-qualified is highly recommended since many sellers require a pre-qualification letter from a reputable lender. Plus, during the pre-qualification process your ASB Loan Officer will help you determine the appropriate price range before you go house hunting.
There are a few items you must consider before applying for a mortgage loan. We recommend that you have a good understanding of how much you want to borrow, what your credit score is, and that your financial information is readily available.
We typically ask for two years of W-2s and tax returns as well as other documents to verify the information that you provide to us. Every applicant is different, so please contact a loan officer to discuss your situation.
Jumbo Loans are any loans over the conforming loan limit set annually for each county by the Federal Housing Finance Agency.
