?
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.

Excellent loan service

Yes, I recommend this lender

Sebonic Financial has done a great job for my new home loan recently. From the loan application/origination, processing, and closing, the lender, especially loan officer, Amanda Bruce, and loan processor, Michelle Cooper, worked so hard on my loan. The rate was lower that other lenders, and the closing cost was very low. The Amanda worked in the evening and the night to have my loan application, my loan pre-approval, and get my loan rate locked with so communications with me over phone and email. Michelle worked so hard with getting required documents for my loan processing. She was so patient and waited for my documents, and she answered so many questions of mine over phone and email. Also, the customer service was great and they helped me about my questions and directed my calls to right persons. And their portal was a great tool for document reviews, uploading, faxing, and other communications.

I was looking for a VA specific refinance. There is a stipulation with VA loans I was unaware of that disqualified me for the program I was looking for. I presented all of my information and Woody and he told me to fill out a loan application. They ran my credit before looking to see if I qualified for the program I was applying for and he waited two days to respond to me after I asked him directly if my credit was run. When he did respond to one of my emails he was unapologetic and rude. UPDATE: This issue was escalated to Sebonic's parent company and they were very accommodating in finding a work around the issue that had us hung up.

Low rates, low closing costs

Yes, I recommend this lender

I chose to do our refinance with Sebonic because of the positive reviews on lendingtree, low interest rates and a lender credit that would reduce our closing costs. We began the process in mid-January and everything went smoothly in the beginning. I completed their online application, submitted our financial documentation (pay stubs, bank statements...) and we paid for and completed our appraisal. After Sebonic received our documentation and the appraisal, the process bogged down. I was told the underwriters were behind schedule about 3 or 5 days. I had to follow up several times with various people in different departments to find out the status of our refinance. It was difficult to know who to talk to about our loan status. Everyone I spoke to was friendly and professional. Our 30 day rate lock expired and was extended by 7 days for free. I contacted Sebonic and found out that the underwriter had completed a conditional approval. I spoke to our final processor who said that she was just waiting for some IRS tax transcripts. A few days later our extended rate lock was about to expire and to extend it for 7 more days we would have to pay $466. I had to reach out to the mortgage broker to confirm that we didn't have to pay this fee. This fee should have been waived automatically. Then we got an updated good faith estimate but lender credit ($480) was less than what was initially promised ($950). I again had to contact the mortgage broker to make sure we were getting the promised lender credit. We were finally able to close and we signed the closing papers 39 days after we started this process. We are happy with the interest rate, closing costs and lender credit. When I spoke to Sebonic everyone was professional and polite. I just wish that someone at Sebonic was staying on top of things and coordinating our loan rather than me following up several times to find out what was going on. I also wish they were more upfront about the delays.

The Importance of North Carolina Mortgage Rates When Purchasing a Home
The nine million residents of North Carolina, the Tar Heel State, enjoy some of the best scenery and weather in the country. Being able to get great NC mortgage rates is part of the allure of owning a home in this state.

From the bustling capital of Raleigh to the secluded beaches and tourist destinations of places like the Outer Banks and Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina has relatively mild winters and long, hot summers. 

Finding NC mortgage rates that you're comfortable with is an important part of financing a home in the state. North Carolina offers several programs to help people buy homes in the state, secure low NC mortgage interest rates, and finance their purchases. Taking advantage of these programs is a great way to obtain that new home you've been dreaming of. 

Special Programs for Securing Current NC Mortgage Rates
North Carolina's Making Home Affordable Program is one way the state is helping its residents afford home ownership by helping them to secure low interest rates.

Refinancing through the program can stop foreclosures and help people get caught up financially, all while giving qualified applicants a mortgage payment that they can handle. If you're buying your first home, the state of North Carolina has programs to help you, as well. The same is true if you are in a qualifying low-income bracket.

North Carolina Mortgage Rates for First-Time Buyers
North Carolina's state government offers a variety of attractive incentives to first-time homebuyers. These incentives include limited down payment assistance and competitive interest rates for qualified first-time buyers. Another incentive is a mortgage credit certificate, which can help lower homeowners' income tax liability and help them save money to pay their mortgages.

To secure these low NC mortgage rates, first-time homebuyers must:

• be able to prove US residency
• earn within a given income bracket
• occupy the purchased home for at least 60 days

If these criteria are met, homebuyers can enjoy low NC mortgage interest rates and help with closing costs.

Researching North Carolina Mortgage Rates and Forming a Budget
The North Carolina Housing Finance Agency offers a variety of tools for homebuyers to help form a realistic budget and calculate NC mortgage interest rates. The agency's website offers tools to help determine "how much house" homebuyers can afford along with an NC mortgage rate calculator to help homeowners determine how much they'll be paying over time.
