Purchasing a New House? Four Key Questions to Ask Your Essex Mortgage Advisor



Are you looking to purchase a new house? If you plan on borrowing either some or most of the house’s purchase price, you must get prepped for the entire mortgage process. We have outlined four key questions that you must ask your Essex mortgage professional to begin working on your home loan.


What’s The Best Mortgage Option For Me?

It is common knowledge that there are an array of mortgage loan options and programs available today. You may be eligible for several mortgage loans as well as a few government programs or speciality mortgages. For each kind of mortgage loan, your mortgage advisor can assist you in discussing the pros and cons to help you opt for the right option.


What Interest Rate Fits My Budget?

The next step involves determining the loan term and interest rate combination that result in an affordable monthly payment for you. For instance, in a few cases, a lower interest rate may be preferred over a more extended period such as 15 or 20 years, which essentially decreases your monthly payments. Alternatively, you may wish to pay back the loan faster and opt for a shorter term with a slightly higher interest rate.


What Fees And Completion Cost Will I Incur?

When borrowing a mortgage to purchase a house, a few additional costs and fees will be incurred. A few of them are associated with the home itself, including the home inspection or valuation fees. The rest of the fees are associated with the mortgage. They are related to loan origination fees or discount points that you decide to purchase to lower your interest rate. Consult your mortgage advisor to learn more regarding the fees you must pay and those you can avoid.


What Documents And Paperwork Do I Need To Prepare?

Lastly, you will need to supply documents and paperwork. Such as income and credit history and those meant for risk assessment purposes, including past income tax forms, bank statements, or other materials in case you’re self-employed.

When you meet your mortgage advisor, these are a few points you must cover.
