You can apply for a home loan at Ent Credit Union. Ent will need to run a credit check when reviewing your application. They will ask to see a copy of your tax returns, pay stubs, and existing debts to make sure you can afford your monthly payments until the loan is paid off completely. The application process usually takes about 30 days. It may take longer if you have a lot of accounts, assets, or debts that need to be analyzed and verified.  

It's recommended to get pre-approved for a home loan before applying on the property of their choice. To get pre-approved for a home loan, you will need to apply for a mortgage up to a certain amount. The lender will then run a credit check to ensure that you can afford the loan. Once you have been pre-approved, you can use this letter to make an offer on the house of your choice. During the closing, the lender will pay the seller for the house minus your initial down payment. You can then move in right away and begin making monthly payments on your mortgage.  

You may need to act fast when shopping for a home. Pre-approval can give you the edge in a tight housing market.  

A mortgage works just like other types of loans. The lender issues a lump sum, and the borrower agrees to pay back the principal amount plus interest over the life of the loan. However, mortgages tend to last longer than other types of loans. Most home loans last up to 30 years.  

Like other types of loans, you will face a penalty if you fall behind on your monthly payments. The home loan acts as a lien or claim on your property, which means that you won’t own your home outright until you have paid off the loan entirely. The lender reserves the right to repossess your home if you default on your loan. That’s why it’s so important to keep up with your regular monthly payments. If you can’t afford to make your monthly mortgage payment, you may need to extend the duration of your loan agreement, but this means you will have to pay more in interest over time. Like all loans, the sooner you pay off your mortgage, the more you will save in interest.  

You will also need to pay for closing costs when you close on the home loan. The lender may also charge mortgage insurance premiums on top of the monthly payment. Read through the full terms and conditions of the agreement to make sure you understand the full cost of the loan. 

All mortgage loans come with interest. The interest rate is expressed as a percentage, or what’s commonly referred to as the APR, annual percentage rate.  

Mortgage loans can be fixed-rate or adjustable-rate. Fixed-rate mortgages tend to be the most common, especially among first-time home buyers. This means the interest rate will not change over time. Your monthly statement should stay the same, so you can budget your expenses accordingly.  

Adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs) come with adjustable interest rates. The loan will typically start off with a low interest rate. This is what’s known as the introductory period.   

The interest rate will then go up after the introductory rate expires. The rate will change every month, quarter, year or more depending on the terms of the contract. ARMs typically cap the interest rate so that it can’t exceed a certain rate.  

If you go with an adjustable-rate mortgage, try to pay off as much of the loan as possible during the introductory period. Most people choose fixed-rate mortgages, so they don’t have to worry about paying more interest down the line.
