Mortgage Loan Pricing Information

SchoolsFirst FCU uses pricing evaluation to determine your mortgage loan interest rate and point combination. This evaluation assesses a group of pricing factors (listed below) specifically related to your mortgage loan. Following the initial evaluation of these pricing factors, you will be given an estimate of what your price will be.

Main Factors That Impact Your Mortgage Loan Price
Credit Score: Your credit score is a number based on information from your credit report including payment history, length of credit history, outstanding balances, and types of credit. Higher scores indicate a more sound credit profile based on maintaining timely payments, low balances, and only opening new credit accounts as needed. FICO is the most commonly used scoring system with a range from 300-850.

Property: The value of the property, determined by an appraisal, compared to the amount you wish to borrow represents your loan-to-value or "LTV." Typically, you will improve your loan pricing by making a larger down payment which lowers your LTV. The type of property you are considering is also important. For example, a multiple-unit property or condominium will have a different price point compared to a single family detached property.

Loan Type/Term: This refers to the type of loan product you select and its corresponding term. For example, a conforming fixed-rate purchase product will have different pricing than a cash-out refinance product based on the credit and property considerations described above.

Rate Lock/Price Confirmation
While you have the option to lock-in your loan interest rate before final approval, doing so does not guarantee your loan price. Any changes specific to your loan, based on the above pricing factors, will be evaluated and may affect your loan price. Your actual loan price will be redetermined at final loan document approval.
