Georgia Mortgage Rates

Refinance rates now in ATLANTA, GA [Change this]

?
Home Price (Purchase)
When you get a mortgage to purchase a home, the lender uses the lower of the agreed-upon purchase price or the property's appraised value to determine your maximum loan amount. The loan amount divided by the property home price equals your loan-to-value ratio, or LTV. That ratio is one of the major factors that lenders use to set your mortgage rate. If your LTV exceeds 80 percent, you'll probably be required to pay mortgage insurance, which increases your monthly payment. If the property appraises for less than the agreed-on purchase price, you are not usually required to complete the purchase.
?
Home Value (Refinance)
This is your estimate of the current value of your property. When you refinance, your home is almost always evaluated by a licensed appraiser. The refinance loan amount divided by the property's appraised value equals your loan-to-value ratio (LTV), and that number is one of the major factors that determine your mortgage rate. To get an accurate refinance rate quote, your home value estimate must be reasonably accurate.
?
Down Payment
The down payment is the amount you pay upfront when you finance property. Your purchase price minus your down payment equals your mortgage amount. The higher your down payment, the more likely you are to be approved for a home loan. If your down payment is less than 20 percent of the purchase price, you'll probably be required to pay for mortgage insurance, which increases your monthly payment.
?
Credit Score
Your credit score is a number designed to measure your credit-worthiness. It's based on a formula that combines many factors, including your payment history, amount of credit used and number of accounts. This number is used by lenders to calculate the probability that you'll default on your mortgage. Most lenders won't approve mortgages to applicants with credit scores lower than 620. Your credit score is one of the most important factors that determines your mortgage rate - applicants with higher scores are offered better mortgage rates.

Great for the uncomplicated borrower.

Yes, I recommend this lender

Although I was unable to consummate the loan process, for reasons I'll explain, they tried to get it approved. Even though I earn a significant 6 figure salary, I am paid buy my corporation who is paid by my law firm. The earnings being completely distributed each year yielded 0 income. Their underwriters could not wrap their head around that. Bottom Line, If you are not in that situation it should be a short and easy process. If you are, then let them know ahead of time so they can be upfront. Otherwise they are very well organized and do their best to find you the best rates.

Most Stressful ReFi We have Ever Done

I will open by saying that when all was said and done our refi closed with the terms agreed to. However... we have done several refi's through the years and this was hands down the most stressful one we went through. I had to stay on top of the process the WHOLE time - something I have never had to do. I can't imagine what would have happened if I wasn't so diligent in ensuring - and at times facilitating - that things were moving along. Our loan processor was very kind when I was able to get a hold of her, but getting a hold of her was no easy task. I'm a patient person and totally understand that "stuff happens", but I have no tolerance for someone not at least taking 30 seconds to reply with, at minimum, "I got your message, I'm swamped, and will get back with you just as soon as I can." I ultimately had to reach out to someone else to get the service that I needed. The process took much longer than expected, in part due to documents not being submitted in full by Sebonic/Cardinal. (We subordinated our HELOC in the refi.) When it came time to close, I was told I would have to PAY $2,000 in costs; I was shocked! I was told the loan would cost less than half that and that the amount would be rolled into the new loan (except for the appraisal). Again, after making multiple phone calls expressing my frustration (in a firm but kind manner), numbers were eventually adjusted so we would not have to pay out of pocket. As I said at the beginning, all worked out ok in the end, but because of the frustration and stress we experienced, and the "babysitting" I had to do throughout the process, I cannot in good conscience recommend them. They clearly have some very positive reviews and happy customers; we, unfortunately, did not have the experience they did.

Georgia Mortgage Rates and Home Loan Options
The Peach State hosted the Olympic Games in 1996 and has since gained worldwide acclaim as the home of southern hospitality. Georgia is a prime destination for those looking for a great combination of affordable housing, public services, and quick access to metropolitan areas like Atlanta, Augusta, and Savannah. In particular, Atlanta has grown to be the largest city in the state, while still offering residents a good mix of both urban and suburban locales.

Jumbo Loans and Mortgage Interest Rates in GA
Most Georgia lenders consider any loan above the FHA conforming loan limit of $417,000 a jumbo loan. Jumbo loans are typically harder to obtain than conventional conforming loans, because the higher loan amount requires a correspondingly higher loan payment. Jumbo loans require lenders to sustain a higher level of risk, so they put stringent qualification requirement in place. Nevertheless, many lenders in the state of Georgia offer jumbo loans at or slightly above market interest rates. Research current GA mortgage interest rates for jumbo loans before applying.

Predatory Lending and Georgia Mortgage Rates
Predatory lending practices have been a problem throughout the country in the past few years. Short term adjustable rate mortgages offered to borrowers who could barely afford the payments have forced many homeowners into default and foreclosure. As a result, Georgia has led the charge in combating predatory lending, providing potential homeowners with counseling and educational opportunities to help them recognize predatory lending companies and potentially disastrous mortgage rates. 

Down Payment Assistance for GA Mortgage Loans
Georgia's Dream Homeownership Program allows participants to obtain second mortgages that cover the first lender's required down payment and closing costs, up to certain limits for which the borrower may qualify.  Participants can include:

• home buyers
• home builders
• homeowners facing foreclosure

The American Dream Down Payment Initiative (ADDI) is another program offered at the county level that assists first time home buyers and families with incomes below 80 percent of the median income for their area. The funds can be used to pay part of the upfront costs and down payment requirements of the mortgage lender.  Funds can also be used for limited property rehabilitation.

Georgia Home Loan Options and Interest Rates for Seniors
The Georgia Department of Human Services and its Division of Aging Services assists senior citizens who own and occupy single-family homes or want to buy such property. Loans through its lending partners can provide funds to incorporate more accessible features for the elderly and handicapped, as well as help them find the best current GA mortgage interest rates.
