?
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.

HORRIBLE to work with

Loan pre approval was easy. The loan originator was knowledgable, then I was transfered to a loan specialist and loan hub. The Specialist was, very unconcerned and did not seam to listen to my needs. Her response time was very slow to my emails and called messages and she never had a answer to my questions when we did correspond. LOAN HUB was horrible. It would freeze up and give me a response of "Oops, something went wrong". Try again later. This happened many times. Documents that were uploaded and received were then lost or deleted by the Loan Specialist and we're requested again by Loan Hub, but you would only know if YOU looked at your loan status in Loan Hub. No one would email, text or call. When I brought this to the Loan Specialist attention she said that she did not look at Loan Hub and did not know how it worked. Imagine That. In the end the loan was never closed, because the Appraiser, hired by Capital One, did not turn in the Appraisal in time for closing. They then wanted to start the Loan Process all over with another "LOAN SPECIALIST.

Worst customer service

My experience with capital one has been absolutely horrible. I have tried to give them the benefit of the doubt. The only positive experience was the loan pre-approval process. It was all automated and very fast, but I think this might be what led to the worst experience I've had in getting a loan. Once you accept their terms, they give you access to loanhub for uploading all your documents and communicating with your loan team. I have excellent credit that is between 760-800 depending on which bureau report you pull. I am putting 20% down and have proof of income for a very secure position. The problems start when you have no one to talk to. They list a bunch of documents you need, you provide them, and you don't hear back on whether they are acceptable to underwriting. They continue to ask for the same documents over and over again until you are finally able to explain it to someone if you are lucky enough to get someone on the phone. I have called numerous times and have been on hold for 20 minutes each time or left a voicemail that is not returned. I've emailed questions and I don't get a response. If I do get a response it is usually another form or question they need answered with zero answers to my questions. I've asked repeatedly if we will still close on time and if there are any other issues I need to close out. Nothing. It is the worst. I thought I was saving money because of points and interest rate and now I wish I never used them. Unfortunately, I am too far along in the process and can't switch, although I still doubt the loan will ever close anyway. Please, unless you are saving a significant amount of money, do not use them. It's very surprising because I have always loved their credit card products and have been a customer for years. I just can't believe this is how they treat customers. I really have no idea how lending tree has them rated at 4.4 of 5.

Professional and Customer Friendly Experience.

Yes, I recommend this lender

I had to write this email to let you know what a great group of people you have. It is mainly because of Max Kotterman that I selected your company which was about $1,000.00 more expensive than my second choice. In addition, the second choice company had more negative reviews about their underwriting department which sent up a red signal to me. I have learned having been in business for over 30 years that the lesser cost alternative is not always the most desirable. Max Kotterman was great as was Katie Buckley. They both went out of their way to answer my questions quickly and efficiently. If I were still in my own business, I'd hire both in a second! Tracy Uhrig and Rebecca Rayment, both of who I did not communicate much with, were also very professional and cooperative. The "Closer Notary", Danielle L. Kingsley, could not have been more professional, friendly, and organized. Start to finish was exactly 30 days. Amazing! I could not see how the experience could have been any better. Thank you for the wonderful job your "hiring" staff does. All these people should be commended for realizing how far good customer service can go. Once again ..... Great Job!

Shelly Archer and her team were on top of the whole process. If I had a question, she answered it timely, usually the same day. The whole process was a pleasant experience and I would go through this bank again without question. Thank you, Shelly Archer and team for making this a seamless and pleasant experience.

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.
