FHA fixed rate loans are some of the most popular programs for refinancing.
This is where you have stable predicable payments each month and as a result offers the most security for yourself and your family.
If you are currently in an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) and would like the security of a fixed rate, a fixed rate FHA is the right program for you.
The process generally involves the following steps:
- Speak with your assigned Loan Officer about an FHA loan
- Complete a full mortgage application with the assigned lender
- Upon approval, supply the required documentation
- Coordinate with appraiser that lender chooses
- Send in loan package and clear conditions from the Bank
- Schedule closing
If you are looking to refinance and want the best rate and terms, and want an easy process with more favorable guidelines, an FHA loan is probably the best choice for you.
