FAQ

How does my credit score affect my home loan interest rate?

In general, a higher (better) credit score will qualify you for a lower interest rate, and visa versa. Depending on the type of mortgage loan a borrower is wanting, their credit score will be more, or less, important. For example, an FHA Loan will typically allow for a lower credit score than a Conventional Loan. Check out each of the mortgage loans we offer at Mabrey to get a better idea of what loan type fits your needs.

Which loan is right for me?

With several options for mortgage loans at Mabrey Bank, it’s likely that you’ll find one that works for you. If you are interested in a traditional home loan, a Conventional Loan might be best. For a first-time home buyer, an FHA Loan could be right for you. For a large home purchase, check out our Jumbo Loan option. If you are or were a member of the military, see if you qualify for a VA Loan. Moving outside the city? Check out our USDA Loans. Or if you are a Native American of a federally recognized Tribe, see our HUD 184 Loans. Explore all of our home loan options and educate yourself on the right choice for you.

Do I need a home appraisal to get a home loan?

Yes. When applying for any of our mortgage types, you will need a home appraisal to ensure the home is worth what you’re paying for it.

How long does the loan process take?

Depending on the type of mortgage loan needed and the applicant’s financial credentials (credit score, debt-to-income ratio, credit history, down payment amount and more) this process could take anywhere from a few days to a few months. Start your application now.

How much can I afford?

Every home purchase and borrower is different and unique. Typically, the largest factor in how big a loan you can be preapproved for is your debt-to-income (DTI) ratio. Most lenders require a DTI of 43% or less. That number could be lower depending on your financial history and credit score.

What is the minimum down payment for the different types of loans?

Some mortgage loans such as VA Loans or USDA Loans do not require a down payment. Others such as FHA Loans (3.5%) or HUD 184 Loans (as low as 1.25%) require a small down payment. Conventional Loans require 20% down to avoid paying mortgage insurance.

How do I figure out how much equity I have?

First, you will need to find out the appraised value of your home. While you can check online agencies that estimate the value of your home, offering a rough guess, these are not an actual appraised value. After finding out the current value of your home, total the amount of loans outstanding on the cost of the home. Then, subtract the total from the appraised value to determine how much equity is in your house.

What is PMI?

PMI (or Private Mortgage Insurance) is the mortgage insurance that is required to be paid by the borrower to protect the lender in case of a default on the loan. PMI is required on Conventional Loans where the homebuyer puts a down payment that is less than 20% of the purchase price of the home. Depending on your credit score, PMI typically ranges from 0.58% to 1.86% the cost of the loan annually. The cost of mortgage insurance will vary depending on the size of loan, the down payment amount, the borrower’s credit score and more.

Does pre-qualifying impact my credit score?

No. Prequalification or preapproval for a mortgage loan will not affect your credit score. Once you officially apply for a mortgage loan, then your score could be impacted.

What’s the difference between an APR and an interest rate?

An interest rate is the annual cost of borrowing the principal loan amount. Annual Percentage Rate, or APR, takes into account the total yearly cost of borrowing, not just the interest on the principal loan amount. This could include origination fees, broker fees, discount points, mortgage insurance, closing costs and more.

How much will my mortgage be with taxes and insurance?

The total cost of your mortgage, including taxes and insurance, will depend on a large variety of factors. Use our mortgage calculator to get a rough estimate of what your monthly payment might be.
