- Of course, Your Credit Score
Credit scores play a big role in your mortgage rate, it’s important to maintain a good credit score.
- Your Loan Type
There are many types of loans, each offering different terms for qualified buyers.
- Your Loan Term
Another factor to consider is the term of your loan. Depending on your situation, the length of your loan can also change your mortgage rate.
- Your Down Payment
If you’re a current homeowner looking to sell and make a move, you can use the home equity you’ve built over time toward the down payment on your next home. That will decrease your loan amount drastically and can help you qualify for a lower rate.
