First Mortgages – most people will need a first mortgage or to refinance their existing mortgage at some time in their lives. First mortgages usually have a maximum loan to value ratio (LTV) of 75%. Some lenders do go as high as 80% for a first mortgage. To get the lowest interest rate possible you will need a good credit score and an acceptable loan to value ratio. If you do not meet all these requirements, mortgage brokers in Richmond can still get a mortgage, but it may cost you more money.
Second Mortgages – the are many different reasons for getting a second mortgage which could include home renovation costs or educational costs. Second mortgages have a higher LTV of up to 85%, but most Richmond mortgage lenders will not exceed an LTV of 80%. The interest rate for a second mortgage will depend on the LTV and your credit rating.
Debt Consolidation – one of the best reasons for getting a second mortgage is a debt consolidation loan. If you have outstanding credit card balances the rate interest could be as high as 29%. In contrast a second mortgage will have an interest rate that is less than half of the credit card rate. The usual minimum loan amount for this type of mortgage is about $20,000.00. Mortgage brokers in Richmond can also place you in a credit repair program which could lower your interest payments.
