The concept of a mortgage is quite simple. It’s basically a loan for a home wherein the property itself is used as collateral. Securing a mortgage however, can be complex. The process may take more than a month, as several parties – from the escrow officer to the loan underwriter – work behind the scenes to put it all together.
Often times a mortgage is a necessary part of purchasing a home. There are many mortgage options out there to choose from...mortgage brokers, lenders, financial institutions, mortgage options/programs (Conventional, FHA, VA, etc.). I always suggest approaching your bank first, as you have a history of doing business together. However, it is always in your best interest to look around and explore other options to find the best rate and best mortgage option for your individual situation.
