Tips to Getting a Great Residential Mortgage

Truthfully, part of your interest rate depends on the market. Different economic times mean different things for home loan interest rates, but you can control many aspects that determine your rate.

Maintain Good Credit

Your credit score can make or break your residential mortgage. The number one reason why we have to turn people down? Their credit scores just don’t cut it. Paying your debts on time will help improve your score.

Work History & Savings

Though not as important as your credit score, Your work history and savings are also important factors considered during the loan process.
