?
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.

Timely and professional

Yes, I recommend this lender

The process with Consumer Direct was pleasant and timely. Everything was laid out well and they had the best rate available for a 20 year refi. We are very happy with the outcome and would recommend them highly.

A Pleasant Experience

Yes, I recommend this lender

Although I'd initially dreaded the refinancing process and all that goes along with it (mainly gathering and submitting paperwork), I quickly found that Patrick Moore and his team are on top of the process. All my questions were timely answered, and submitting requested documents was super-easy via their online portal. Turns out, it was a pain-free, pleasant experience! I'll refer friends and family to Patrick and his team -- for sure.

Great Experience!

Yes, I recommend this lender

This was by far the easiest mortgage I have ever done. I've refinanced about 3 times in the last 7 or so years and this was the best experience by far. Easy to deal with and they closed in my home. I would recommend them every time!

By: Michelle (Charleston, SC)

Bought a house

Yes, I recommend this lender

I have been working with Atlantic Bay for a bit now. They had my loan underwriten before I found a house to make sure there wasn't any problems once we found one. Their responsiveness has been wonderful and the rate was one of the lowest I found. I would recommend them to anyone.

By: Kim (Charlotte, NC)

Excellent Job

Yes, I recommend this lender

This is the second loan I have closed with these guys. Both have been really easy experiences. The online process was really straightforward and their rate was one of the lowest I've found both times.

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.

Mortgage Rate Trends

Monthly | Daily

Looking for a mortgage in the Wolverine State? You're on the right page! If you have questions about lending practices in Michigan, the Department of Insurance and Financial Services, Office of Consumer Finance regulates lenders within the state.

Michigan Mortgage Rates

When looking at Michigan mortgage rates, don’t try to compare them to those in other states. Factors such as the state economy, the degree of competition among lenders and the state’s lending laws all vary from one state to another and affect mortgage interest rates.

Buying a Home in Michigan

Housing prices appear to be on the rise again in Michigan after taking an almost 26% plunge that started at the end of 2005.

At $180,000—the median sale price of a home in Ann Arbor--housing prices there are among the highest in the state, according to the Housing Opportunity Index (HOI). The good news is that if you earn the median income of $84,200, more than 82% of homes in Ann Arbor are affordable.

The picture is similar in other parts of the state where the HOI reports that 85% or more homes are affordable to median income households.

Closing costs are also reasonable at $2,203, some of the lowest in the country ranking Michigan 48th out of 50 states and the District of Columbia.

For households who need financial assistance to buy a home, there are a number of programs offering help with down payments and closing costs:

Individual cities and towns also offer similar types of assistance.

FHA Mortgages

FHA mortgage rates are not regulated by the government, even though the loans are government-backed. The maximum amount you can borrow is determined by the property location. In most counties the limit is $271,050, but there are some notable exceptions: in Niles-Benton Harbor the cap is $298,750; Warren-Troy-Farmington Hills, $297,500; and in Kalamazoo-Portage, $286,250. Compare multiple loan offers from FHA approved lenders.

 VA Home Loans

If you qualify for a VA loan, the Department of Veterans Affairs does NOT put caps on loan amounts; however, most lenders limit loan amounts to four times the VA guarantee, and that amount varies by property location. Most lenders cap mortgages at $417,000 in all Michigan counties.
