Frequently Asked Questions:

A fixed-rate mortgage is a type of mortgage that has a fixed interest rate that does not fluctuate with market rates. Typically, fixed-rate mortgages refer to a “30-year fixed” loan, where the interest rate and payment will remain the same for 30 years.

An adjustable-rate mortgage is a type of mortgage in which the interest rate applied on the outstanding balance varies throughout the life of the loan. Typically, the initial interest rate is fixed for a period of time, after which it resets periodically, often every year.

The interest rate is the amount you will pay every year on your mortgage loan expressed at a percentage rate. The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) includes the interest plus any other charges related to your mortgage loan. The APR includes the interest rate plus any fees or points associated with your loan. The interest rate does not include any additional fees associated with your loan. For this reason, the APR is usually higher than the interest rate.

Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) is generally required when you have a conventional mortgage loan, and your down payment is less than 20%. If you refinance and your home’s equity is less than 20%, PMI is generally required. This insurance policy protects the lender if you stop making your mortgage payments and adds additional costs to the monthly mortgage payment. PMI is not a permanent cost, and may be removed when you have at least 20% equity in your home or the property financed.

While requirements can vary based on an individual’s credit history and circumstances, there are certain minimum requirements for a conventional loan. Members must have a minimum credit score of 620 and a maximum debt-to-income ratio of 45% to qualify.

It depends on your mortgage loan type. Texell has mortgage loan options that will not be sold to another lender. Ask your mortgage loan officer for the loan that best meets your needs.
