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.

Terrible closing experience

The underwriting team definitely does not have their act together. We are going through the 4th extension because they can't review the documents fast enough (apparently the condo review team takes their time). They also has asked us to provide proof of income on certain funds at least 5 times (meaning that they got it 5 times too). When you ask them for status, the answer is usually: "I don't know, that is department x who is handling that". It is a total waste.

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.

WI Mortgage Rates for First Time Homebuyers
Wisconsin first time homebuyers have options when it comes to getting financing with current WI mortgage rates. In addition to programs through the VA, FHA and Rural Housing Development departments, Wisconsin buyers can also take part in the Wisconsin Neighborhood Advantage Program. These programs are all available with assistance from the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority.

WHEDA FHA Programs using Current Wisconsin Mortgage Rates
The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) offers home loan assistance to those who live in "America’s Dairyland." The FHA program is run through Housing and Urban Development (HUD), but the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA) can provide WI residents with details about the program, as well as information on necessary homeowner education programs.

When applying for an FHA insured loan, certain requirements must be fulfilled:

• the amount of money you can borrow is limited on a county by county basis.
• you must meet income requirements.

Wisconsin Mortgage Interest Rates and VA Loans
For Wisconsinites who meet certain armed forces eligibility requirements, the VA loan using WI mortgage interest rates is a good bet. This program allows up to 100 percent financing.

When you get a VA loan, a minimal funding fee will be added to the loan amount. This funding fee is paid off over time, as part of your normal monthly payments. The fee is used to help avoid monthly mortgage insurance payments, which can add to the overall cost of your home loan.

USDA Rural Housing Loan Programs Using WI Mortgage Interest Rates
If you want to live in a rural part of Wisconsin, a loan program is available especially for you. WHEDA can connect you with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Housing Program. This program is restricted to assistance in securing homes and land in designated rural areas of WI.

The USDA Rural Housing program has rates lower than current WI mortgage interest rates. With this program, it is sometimes possible to finance the entire purchase price of the house. Some income restrictions apply, however, based on the number of people in your family.

Wisconsin Mortgage Rates and Wisconsin Neighborhood Advantage
This homeowner assistance program, designed help restore old properties and purchased vacant homes, is available exclusively through WHEDA. Financing for a foreclosed or vacant home is available in the following counties:

• Brown
• Kenosha
• Milwaukee
• Racine
• Rock
