Mortgage Loans FAQ

AmeriSave offers conventional and government-backed mortgage loans with various terms (e.g., 15 or 30 years) and interest rates.

Fixed-rate loans feature an interest rate that stays the same for the full term of the loan (for example, 15 or 30 years). An adjustable-rate mortgage or ARM, is a loan with an initial rate that is fixed for a specific term (for example, five to seven years), and then adjusts annually based on current interest rates. ARM loans typically have an initial interest rate that is lower than a 30-year fixed-rate loan, making it more desirable when rates are high.

Why would you want a loan that takes 30 years to pay off when you could get a 15-year loan and own your house 15 years sooner?

A 30-year loan spreads out your home mortgage over a longer period (typically with lower fixed interest rates), so you pay less each month, and potentially allows you to afford a more expensive home.

A 15-year loan will typically result in a higher monthly payment for the same loan amount but will cost you less in total mortgage interest because you pay the loan off sooner.

A conventional loan is any loan that is not guaranteed or insured by the federal government and is under a certain total loan amount. Conventional loans larger than $647,200 (2022 limits) are considered jumbo loans. Conventional loans also come with minimum requirements on credit scores and down payments.

FHA loans are backed and insured by the Federal Housing Authority (FHA) and designed to help borrowers with lower credit scores or those wanting to make a lower down payment. Our dedicated experts can help you understand if you qualify for an FHA loan.

The US Department of Veterans Affairs guarantees VA loans, which are available to military veterans and service members. Because VA loans are backed by the government, they offer more affordable terms with less stringent requirements, including lower credit scores and little to no down payment.

Some FAQs about interest rates

Mortgage Rates FAQ

It’s important that you find a loan that fits your goals and budget. We start by asking questions, such as whether you want to refinance or purchase a home.

For buyers, we ask about the home price, your location, your income, whether you already own a home, and other details that inform how big a loan you need, whether you qualify for any federal programs, and what you can afford.

For those who wish to refinance, we ask about how much equity is in the home, how much is owed, what your goals are (cash out, home improvement funding, lower monthly payment, etc.) and then determine the best loan for you.

Once you’ve answered those questions, we look for a loan (and a rate) that is the best fit for you—not someone else.

Borrowers with good credit scores typically have more options and are offered lower mortgage interest rates because lenders see them as a lower risk to not paying back the loan. Borrowers with poor credit scores are seen as a higher risk to the lender, which may offer higher rates as a result.

But an imperfect credit score (typically one under 620) is not a deal-breaker, particularly if you qualify for one of the government backed loans (FHA, VA, USDA, etc.), which have more lenient income and credit requirements. Lenders may also counter the risk of a borrower with a low credit score by offering a higher interest rate.

APR is the annual percentage rate, which includes the interest rate plus loan fees and expenses. The interest rate is the percentage you pay to borrow money from a lender for the term of the loan.

Once you have been preapproved by a lender, you may be able to lock in your rate—particularly important at times when mortgage interest rates are on the rise. AmeriSave’s Lock & Shop program lets you lock in your rate for up to 90 days, giving you time to shop for a home without worrying about rising rates. It also comes with a Certified Approval Letter, which gives both the buyer and seller the confidence of knowing financing is already available.

Searching online for a low mortgage rate can return plenty of useful information about mortgage loans, the lending process, time to close, and which lenders consistently offer the lowest rates. Other criteria to consider include user reviews, recommendations from friends and family, and your own interaction with a lender.

If you chat online or call a lender, are they listening and responding with helpful information? Are they friendly or do they sound rushed? Customer service is important as you move through the application process. Homebuying and refinancing a loan can be tedious and take several weeks; you want a partner you can count on from now until closing day. At AmeriSave, we combine technology and a human touch to give our customers the best of both worlds: low rates and excellent service.
