How to get best interest rates in Houston...

 

When purchasing a home searching for the best interest rates in Houston is in many occasions a complicated full-time work.

Buying a house involves many complex decisions and besides finding the right house, it would be fair to say the most important task is the best mortgage loan interest rate and of course your credit report will play an important role. Whether we seek for a Conventional Loan, VA Loan or FHA Loan, making sure we will not be paying more interest than we should otherwise with a better interest rate over a 15- or 30-year term is extremely important. Remember even with poor credit scores, home loans for bad credit do exist and thus this is a job we must go thru to find the right mortgage lender towards home ownership. It is wise for first time homebuyers to ask Loan Officer minimum credit score requirements for each loan program we may be interested in to buy a home.

Consider the following hypothetical scenario which in no way is an offer or extension for credit at 2 different possible interest rates assuming $0 closing costs and no mortgage insurance. We offered $325,000 for the perfect house and seller has accepted. Therefore, the following numbers:

Purchase price: $325,000
Down Payment: $16,250 (5%)
Loan Amount: $308,750
Option 1 at 4.875% - Monthly payment: $1,633.93
Option 2 at 4.625% - Monthly payment: $1,587.41

If we were going to close the purchase of such house at the higher interest rate of 4.875% and a payment of $1,633.93, the opportunity cost of not closing at the lower rate of 4.625% would be $34,299.30. Why? Because if we were to choose higher interest rate and thus higher monthly payment if applied to lower rate on a 30-year mortgage, we would accelerate the term of our loan by 21 payments at $1,633.93 would equals the $34,299.30. And any other effort to pay more would equally accelerate faster the repayment of the note.

But finding the best interest rates in Houston not only depends on finding the cheapest bank but also finding the best partnership to complete the home purchase. Clear Lending offers the best interest rates in Houston by setting up Realtor-Loan Officer partnerships where better rates can be obtained than most competitors without the need to waste time searching for dozens of banks and lenders.

Simply apply and we will start your home loan approval with all your options to compare.

    Thank you soooo much Joan, Patricia and Samantha for helping us purchase our first home ever. My wife and I are so thankful there are no words to express the joy we feel each time we open the door of our house. I say to my wife… wait is this our house? Then I remember that yes, we just closed few days ago…. LOL. Jokes aside everything you Joan have done for us ever since day one is beyond any words of appreciation. In our case, we truly feel you have been godsent. I still remember the day my wife and I went to Wells Fargo to be told our chances were very limited due to my taxes’ deductions and so we needed to wait 2 possibly 3 years???? My own bank Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Chase, Capital One and God knows how many places we tried. Each one gave us similar reasons but at the end the message was that we didn’t qualify and zero instructions. Well yes, the instructions were that our taxes didn’t reveal the true picture and health of my business operations. Great and now what? Nothing. And so, I stopped searching. Sometime later after talking to a client about my hopeless attempt to buy a house, he told me about a loan officer who showed up from time to time in the radio station offering home loan programs traditional banks would not offer. And so, I started googling until I found Clear Lending. I asked my colleague and bingo! This was the company. And so, I applied online, got a call back very fast, completed an application over the phone, sent income documents and then I was asked to go with my wife at their office. After one hour or so, I was given precise instructions to become a home owner with a government loan program. All I remember was… “If you follow my advice, we will make it happen”. And a year later, Joan got us the house of our dreams, negotiated best deal to cover most closing costs and closed our loan with a 4.25% interest rate when my own was offering me 4.875%???? I am so thankful I found this guy I still cannot believe the miracle he worked for us. Again, thank you Joan and your team for being a true servant and valuable tool to make possible what for me I was told bank after bank to stop searching as it was not possible. I will always refer you absolutely everyone desiring to buy a house. You are indeed the miracle man!!!!

    My experience with Joan and the clear lending team has been amazing! Joan helped us greatly, with poor credit and a job loss he was able to get us a loan! He looked out for us when choosing a home he didn’t try to push us to buy a house and always did his research. He explained every step, made sure we understood, and was there at every hour to answer any questions we had. Even after the purchase he has followed up to make sure we have no issues with our home.If you’re looking to buy a house I definitely recommend Joan and the team!
