What are some basic details about mortgage loans?
Mortgage loans can be complicated, but no matter which product you choose, each has some basic things in common:
- Interest rate: The interest rate is the percentage of the loan amount that is charged to you to borrow money to buy your home. Interest rates are based on current market conditions, your credit score, your down payment, and the type of mortgage you choose. Look at our current rates and compare to see what may be best for you.
- Loan term: Your loan term is the amount of time you have to pay off your mortgage balance. Shorter loan terms typically mean higher monthly mortgage payments, but they often have lower interest rates--so if you pay off your mortgage balance within that shorter term, you may pay less in total interest than with a longer-term loan.
- Mortgage Origination Fees: These fees can include: tax service fee, flood certification fee, processing fee, underwriting fee, verification of employment fee, closing fee, recording fees, and loan application fee.
- At MCCU, our mortgage fee structure is very competitive. Call one of our Mortgage Originators to find out more.
The total cost of a mortgage is reflected by the interest rate, origination charges, closing costs and prepaids, and is shown by the annual percentage rate, or APR, of the loan. The APR is typically higher than the interest rate of the loan, which allows you to compare mortgages of the same dollar amount and consider their total annual costs.
What types of Mortgages do you offer?
We offer the following types of mortgages: Conventional, FHA, VA, HomeReady, Rural Development, and Hometown Advantage (an MCCU specialty!) in the State of Michigan.
How can I determine what I will be able to borrow?
Before you start looking for a home, getting pre-approved is a good idea. It will provide guidance on how much you can afford to spend on your new home and conveys to the seller that you are a serious, and qualified, buyer. A pre-approval can also give you an edge over competing buyers who are not pre-approved. You can also utilize our Mortgage Payoff Calculator to see what your monthly payment would be depending on the amount of your mortgage.
