100 Percent Refinance – No Down Payment Refi Loans

100 Percent Refinance – No Down Payment Refi Loans

Refinancing 100 percent of your loan allows you to cash out all of the value of your home. With no down payment required, you can use your money to pay off debt, invest in other property, or remodel your current home. When refinancing, make sure that you find the best lender so you don’t get stung on high rate and fees.

Understanding 100% Refinance

100% refinancing means that you take out the total value of your property. You will still need to pay for application fees and points, if you decide to purchase a lower rate. Those closing costs can add up to 3% or more of your loan’s principal amount. But with 100% financing, you can deduct the amount from your principal.

With no equity left, conventional lenders with their prime loans will require you to carry private mortgage insurance. However, subprime lenders don’t ask for such insurance, saving you hundreds a year.

Refinancing also has its tax advantages. For instance, closing costs can be deducted along with paid interest under certain conditions.

Cheap Home Loans: What is an APR?

“APR” is one of the most misunderstood terms in the world of home mortgages. While you might know that it means “Annual Percentage Rate”, you may not know that it includes more than the interest rate. APR is a figure used to determine the yearly cost of a new home loan including all other fees like points, origination fees, and lending fees. A lot see this as something hidden yet it is a clear amount being paid on mortgage.

Years ago, it was hard to determine the total cost of a home mortgage without reading all of the fine print or using a sophisticated mortgage calculator. While one lender might offer you a 7.50% interest rate and another offers you 6.00%, the better deal isn’t so obvious. Overall, the 6.00% loan could be much more expensive with all of additional fees.

The federal government requires lenders to quote APR because loans frequently are offered on different terms. To extend the inevitable fruit analogy, differing loan terms from different lenders can make it hard to figure out which offer is a sour persimmon and which is a real peach. APR helps you identify the peaches.


Basics Of Private Mortgage Insurance

Basics of Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI)

General conventional loans require 20% of the selling price as a down payment. This is often the largest hurdle for many potential home buyers. In order to make buying a home more affordable, lenders devised a solution to allow for smaller down payments and still minimize their own risk – private mortgage insurance.

Borrowers with less than 20% for a down payment may be required to apply for private mortgage insurance. The PMI company then insures the lender, generally for the top 20% of the mortgage, in case of borrower default. The amount that the borrower is required to pay for PMI depends on the type of loan, the loan-to-value ratio, and the insurer. However, it is the lender, not the borrower, that shops for the PMI company and program, so there are some important questions to ask lenders about PMI.

· How many company’s PMI programs will be considered?
· How does the selected policy compare to others in the marketplace in its:

– Rates
– Insured loan-to-value ratio
– Procedure for requesting removal of PMI

The PMI company will consider your application with many of the same guidelines as the lender, namely

Hot Mortgage Terms You Need To Know

Hot Mortgage Terms You Need To Know

Are you considering purchasing a new home? If you are, you should know that this may very well be a very good time to buy a house. The housing market is sluggish, which means that prices tend to be lower and so do interest rates. Also, there are more houses from which to choose. This surplus of houses on the market is good for the buyer; basic laws of supply and demand dictate that the more there is of something (in this case houses), the less it tends to cost.

If you are going to purchase soon, however, it is important that you understand the terminology used regularly in the real estate world. Common mortgage terms include interest rates, length or term of loan, closing costs, variable rate loans, origination fees, document taxes, home equity, acceleration, amortization, conventional financing, down payment, FHA loans, fixed rate loans, points, and private mortgage insurance (PMI).

The interest rate is the amount of money the lender is charging you in order to borrow the loan. This is expressed in terms of percent. Of course, the lower the interest rate, the less the cost of the loan.

Jumbo Loans are now commonplace in America

Jumbo Loans are now commonplace in America

When most people want to buy their dream house, they usually need what is known as a jumbo mortgage. A mortgage is deemed jumbo when it exceeds a certain dollar limit as set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. These two secondary market lenders will only cover loan values under 9,750, which is the new conforming loan limit set by President Bush in February of this past year. Most jumbo loans will carry a higher interest rate as the risk of default is generally greater on a loan of such value. With a good credit score the difference in rates is usually not that high, maybe a difference of half a percentage point or three quarters of a point. However, when markets are skittish, rates can vary by as much as 100 basis points.

In today’s market, jumbo loans with no down payments are not commonplace. Nor are loans with a very small percentage down. More risk for the borrower requires more down payment. More specifically, a lender will be looking for about 5% down to mitigate their risk. With a jumbo loan, your PMI is going to be inherently higher as you

Curtailing The Risk Factor Of A UK Secured Loan

Curtailing The Risk Factor Of A UK Secured Loan

In a secured loan, the house of the borrower needs to be pledged as collateral. This is to reduce the risk faced by the lender in case the borrower is unable to repay the loan. Due to a lower risk factor, UK secured loans carry a lower rate of interest. For borrowers with adverse credit this is an easy way to get a loan because otherwise they are denied credit due to low credit scores. Secured loans are also known as home equity loans or homeowner loans.

A secured loan offers no security to the borrower. The term ‘secured’ refers to security provided to the lending institution or bank. For the borrower there is enhanced risk as he/she stands to lose his/her home if there is default in the scheduled repayment. The lender can repossess the house and sell it for satisfaction of his debts.

This is one of the reasons why many people are apprehensive of obtaining a UK secured loan. A borrower, especially one saddled with an adverse credit history, should carefully assess his credit needs and ability to repay while pursuing a UK secured loan. It would be wise for

Secured Home Equity Loans – Things You Should Know About Home Equity Loans

Secured Home Equity Loans – Things You Should Know About Home Equity Loans

Your Equity Is Your Security

Your home’s equity is the basis for your home equity. You can choose to access it with a variety of loan terms. Refinancing with a cash out will lock in long term rates. A second mortgage pulls out part or all of your equity while keeping your original mortgage intact. This is nice if you have a low interest home loan. Finally, you can create a line of credit based on your equity. It acts much like a low interest credit card.

While loan terms affect your rates, so will your property’s value. Using all of your equity will bump up your rates. Don’t forget to factor in your home’s appreciation when considering your property’s value.

The PMI Factor

Private mortgage insurance may be required with some lenders, especially if you have a prime loan. If you have less than 20% equity in the home, then expect to pay premiums. But sub prime lenders don’t require insurance. And in some cases, if you use a separate lender for your second mortgage, you won’t have to get insurance either.

Finding That Elusive Cheap Loan Protection Insurance
