?
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.

Yes, I recommend this lender

Requesting a loan with Sebonic was a very satisfying experience. I was contacted promptly and professionally, and the loan originator, Scott Galbraith, was very professional and friendly. Although I decided to not complete the loan, Sebonic did offer the best rates I saw out there, and provided a very professional service. I would recommend Sebonic for anyone seeking a mortgage.

Frustrating Loan Hub Experience

I tried using this lender in late 2015. It was a terrible experience. We struggled through this from August to October. I was told that the paperwork process would be easy as Capital One Home Loans uses online technology (Loan Hub) to communicate with the customer. I was told I could upload all of our required documents via a secure site. We tried on three different occasions to upload our documents, but only some of them appeared on the website. We were told that some documents were missing, even after we received confirmation that the documents were received. The online process was not being updated by the company, so we did not know at times where we were in the refi process. The initial customer rep took my preliminary info and then I was sent to another rep who rarely answered my emails or answered with no suggestions to help us. When I told him that the site would not let us upload documents or failed to show that our documents were uploaded, he told me to contact customer service. When I called the number he provided, the customer rep did not know what I was talking about and said he was not familiar with the new Capital One Home Loans website. I truly never had a more frustrating experience and I do not like to write negative reviews, but I must state my frustration with this company. We were made to feel as though once they had our business (we were submitting all required documents) that we were nothing to them. Because this company seemed to lack customer service and someone who could take the time to explain why the electronic document process was so tedious, I had to withdrawal my request for a refi.

Illinois mortgage lenders are regulated by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, Division of Banking.

Illinois Mortgage Rates

If you’re looking for a home loan in Illinois, you might be wondering why each state’s mortgage rates differ from the rest. State laws governing mortgage rates, competition among lenders and the state’s economic health are all factors affecting mortgage rates.

Buying a Home in Illinois

The Home Price Index for Illinois shows that home prices peaked in early 2007 but declined almost 18.5% until the third quarter of 2012. Although prices have begun to rise, they are forecast to decline another nearly 1.5% over the next year while prices continue to slowly increase in other parts of the country.

Closing costs compared to other states are relatively affordable, as well--$2,238 for a $200,000 mortgage, ranking Illinois’s closing costs 46th out of 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Illinois offers a number of state, regional and local programs such as the ones in this partial list:

Programs such as these may even be able to help home buyers with down payments and other forms of financial assistance.

FHA Mortgages

In most parts of Illinois, FHA home loan amounts are limited to $271,050, but can be as high as $410,000 in counties in the Chicago metro area. Check with FHA-approved lenders to compare rates as you would for conventional Illinois mortgages.

 VA Home Loans

Most Illinois mortgage lenders cap VA mortgages throughout Illinois at $417,000, although the VA itself allows them to make larger loans.
