FAQs About Mortgage
What rates will I get for my mortgage?
The interest rate and annual percentage rate (APR) you get will be determined by your credit score. The higher your score, the lower your mortgage rates!
Generally speaking, the APR is slightly higher than the interest rate because it includes some fees. Rolling fees into your APR means you don’t have to pay those fees upfront.
How do I choose the right mortgage term for me?
The term is how long you have to borrow the money and the length of time you choose will impact both your monthly payment and your rates. You want to choose a term that fits your budget.
A 30-year fixed-rate home loan is the most common type of mortgage in the U.S. so if you choose that term, you’ll be in good company with many other Americans. A 30-year term gives you the lowest possible monthly payment, though it comes with higher rates because your lender is taking on more risk over a long period.
A 15-year or 20-year home loan might be ideal if you have a higher income and want to pay your mortgage off faster.
A 10-year term is an ideal tool for refinancing your mortgage later if you find you can afford a higher monthly payment, and you want to save on interest by paying off your home loan sooner than planned.
Do I need to supply any specific information or documents to Argent when I apply?
When applying for your home loan, you’ll need to provide an Argent loan officer with the following documents and information:
- Your driver’s license or DMV-issued ID
- Your Social Security number
- Proof of your physical address (not your mailing address, if it’s different)
- Tax returns
- Pay stubs, W-2s, and any other proof of income
- Bank statements and evidence of any other assets
- Gift letters if someone is helping you with your down payment
- Information about your homeownership or renting history
Note: We will access your credit history by requesting a credit report.
