What are my obligations if I fill out a loan application?
There are no obligations when you apply for a loan with TexasLending.com. Many companies charge between $300 and $500 just to apply. At TexasLending.com we feel this is unnecessary.
What kind of costs can I expect before my loan closing?
Although we have no application fee, if your loan application meets your needs and has been determined to meet our minimum loan qualification guidelines we will require you to pay a loan commitment fee and for your appraisal prior to closing.
What will my rate be if I have bad credit?
A: Rates depend on many factors. Credit is one of those factors. Some other factors include the amount of equity in the property, the level of income documentation provided and the debt level you have as compared to income. Until we understand the structure of your specific loan and the loan is approved, the interest rate can only be estimated. Our goal is to provide you with the lowest interest rate possible so we can earn the business of you and your friends in the future.
What down payment is required if I cannot document my income?
At Texaslending.com if two of your three credit scores are as low as 680 you may qualify for 95% financing. If you are self employed you should expect to document 2 years of self employment and income for the lowest rates and the lowest down payment. Credit scoring requirements can change often for these types of loans and may depend on other factors. To fully qualify please apply for your loan with Texaslending.com.
How can I avoid paying Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) on my mortgage?
If your home loan is over 80% of your home value your loan may require PMI. On FHA loans you may qualify for no monthly PMI if you get a 15 FHA loan at less than 90% of the home value. Texaslending.com has many loan programs to help with an 80% first lien along with a second lien to avoid PMI. For some loan programs PMI is unavoidable. Please consult with one of our loan consultants for greater detail.
