Choose the Right Mortgage

Fixed Rate Mortgage

A Fixed Rate (Conventional) Mortgage has monthly principal and interest payments that remain the same throughout the life of the loan (unless property taxes, insurance premiums or homeowners/condo association fees change). It is recommended for those that do not want their loan to fluctuate with market rates.

Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM)

An ARM has an interest rate that can change at designated intervals throughout the life of the loan. These rate changes are based on a financial index, and when these changes occur your monthly payment may increase or decrease. An ARM is recommended for those who want to take advantage of lower initial payments, those that expect to move before any rate increases, or for those who expect their income to rise.

State of New York Mortgage Agency (SONYMA)

SONYMA provides low interest mortgages to low- and moderate-income home buyers throughout New York State. This Mortgage offers several benefits including low interest rates, low down payment requirements, flexible underwriting guidelines, and down payment assistance. This Mortgage is recommended for first time home buyers.

Renovation Financing: Buy The Fixer-Upper

Sometimes the house you want – or the only one your budget allows – needs a little love. With Renovation Financing, you may be able to roll a renovation loan into your mortgage. This unique solution means you get to buy the home and pay for the work it needs…while still only paying one mortgage payment a month.

Talk to a Mortgage Expert today to find out if your purchase could qualify for renovation financing.

Save for a Down Payment

A down payment is the difference between the purchase price of the property and the mortgage loan amount. It is deducted from the total amount of your Mortgage and represents the equity or your ownership in the house. Down payment requirements vary depending on the type of Mortgage. For many shoppers, saving up a 20% down payment is not easy, but it can have many financial benefits and save you thousands of dollars in the long run. MHV offers financing options up to 97%.

Get Prepared: Set up an automated savings plan to make it easier to build toward your down payment goal. Automate savings by taking a portion of your paycheck and having it directly deposited into your savings account.

Man reviewing finances

Credit Score

Your credit score is a mathematical assessment of the likelihood you will repay what you borrow. It is based on the information in your credit report, which tracks how well you pay and manage bills. Creditors typically check your score when deciding whether or not to approve your loan application. Scores range from 300 to 850, with a higher score being indicative of less risk.

Get Prepared: We recommend you check your credit report before applying for your Mortgage by visiting www.annualcreditreport.com.

Bonus: Your membership includes complimentary access to Financial Counselors that can review your credit report as well as answer questions about credit scoring, building a strong credit history and correcting any inaccuracies that appear. To speak with a counselor, call toll-free 888.456.2227.

Final Walkthrough & Closing

Before closing, it is recommended that you do a final walkthrough of the home to ensure its condition has not changed and that any features that were supposed to be included in the sale are still in place. On the closing day, the Mortgage is finalized, and the title of the house is transferred to you.

Here are some tips:

  • Question mark

    Ask Questions

    Ask questions until you feel comfortable with everything.
  • Calendar icon

    Finalize Details

    Determine who will conduct your closing, the location, time and date.
  • Person icon

    Set Expectations

    Find out from the person who will conduct your closing what to expect at closing.
  • Document icon

    Secure Documents

    Ensure you’ve received your Closing Disclosure three business days before closing.
  • Money icon

    Arrange Payment

    Arrange your payment for the amount due at closing via wire transfer or bank check.
  • Money bag in hand icon

    Confirm Payment

Take all the time you need. You have a right to read and understand your closing documents, no matter how long it takes.
