Understanding the Lingo of Loans

10 year, 15 year, 30 year fixed mortgages. Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARMS). Balloon Mortgages. Principal. Interest. Amortization. Closing Costs. The mortgage process is filled with language and terminology you will need to navigate. Our lending specialists help you understand each loan option, and every word within the fine print.
We make sure that you fully understand your loan options, the repayment terms, and your obligations for the duration of the mortgage. We will go over these with you as often as it takes so that you are fully educated and prepared when the time comes to sign on the dotted line.

Do you have questions about loan terms and options? Contact Cambridge Mortgage, Inc. at (615) 230-1988. We will answer your questions and help you understand the loan options that are ideally suited for your budget an long-term financial goals.

Preparing for the Loan Process

Every loan is as different as the clients who apply for them. However, the basics of qualifying for the loan are about the same. This is where our lending specialists start when you come to our team seeking a loan. We help make sure that your documentation is squared away before the mortgage application is submitted.
Our team reviews the following to help you secure the right loan for your needs:

Credit Scores

Credit scores are a major factor in any loan approval. It is possible to secure a loan with a score as low as 580. However, it is best to have a credit score in the 700’s or higher to secure the best interest rates. Improving a credit score takes time and patience. You should start this process long before you seek a mortgage by checking your scores and removing errors and paying down your debts. Further, if you have bankruptcies, delinquencies, defaults, and other negative information on your report, you should speak with your lender to determine the best ways to address these during the application process.

Employment/Income Verification

Lenders require pay stubs, tax returns, and W2’s that show you have the ability to repay the loan. You will need to establish that you have a steady and stable employment history with a corresponding stream of income to establish this. If you are self-employed, our team can help you prepare the documentation and navigate the process so that your decision to hang your own shingle above the door doesn’t interfere with your ability to pursue your home ownership goals.

Down Payments

Most loans require you to put forth a down payment of between 3-20% to secure the loan. However, some loans such as USDA or VA loans do not have this requirement. Our team can help you calculate how much you should put down for the loan you desire and whether you qualify for specialized loan programs that don’t require a hefty down payment.

Do you have questions about what it takes to secure a mortgage at the best interest rate?
Contact Cambridge Mortgage, Inc. at (615) 230-1988 to speak with our team about credit, income, and other requirements.

Getting Pre-Approved

Pre-approval for a mortgage gives you significant leverage when you start looking at real estate. It is something you should secure before you and your real estate agent start looking at property. Pre-approval helps you narrow your search to properties that fit within your budget. More importantly, it shows sellers that you have the ability to seal the deal when you make an offer. The process can take anywhere between 1-3 days to complete, and it is well worth the short amount of time it takes to go through it. Once pre-approved, you will have between 60-90 days to purchase a home which is more than sufficient time for you to find the perfect property for you and your family.

For fastest service, you will need to have the following documentation ready to go when you submit your application:

  • W2’s for the past two years. If you are self-employed, you will need 2 years of tax returns as well as a year to date profit & loss statement.
  • Pay stubs for the past 30 days.
  • Two months of bank statements for each open account you maintain.
  • Divorce decree (if applicable)
  • Bankruptcy discharge papers (if applicable)
  • Written explanation of past delinquencies, accounts in collections, judgments, or other negative information on your credit report

Our lending team is ready to take your application over the phone. When you are ready to apply, contact Cambridge Mortgage, Inc. at (615) 230-1988. We will go over your documents and complete the process as quickly as possible.

Lynn and Bobby are nothing short of spectacular! They worked extremely hard to get me the best possible rate in order to refinance my house.
Dr. J. F. Lovett II
Lynn and Bobby are as knowledgeable as anyone else in the business. What separates them from the other companies is their compassion and willingness to go above and beyond to ensure a successful transaction that truly benefits the customer. If anything, they worked too hard for me. I am so appreciative of how I was treated and how well-informed I was throughout the process of refinancing. If you or someone you know is considering purchasing or refinancing, I highly recommend Lynn and Bobby as your mortgage specialist. Jay

I have worked with Lynn on more than one occasion for a new mortgage and for refinancing on more than one occasion. I have recommended her to many friends and family who have been looking for a mortgage and I will continue to do so. She goes above and beyond for her clients and that is why she will always be our first call if we need another mortgage.

  • positive review  Lynn at Cambridge Mortgage cared for us as first time home buyers through this entire process. She answered all our questions (and we had many) and even fought for us to have a below average interest rate. We are SO very thankful for all she did to help our first time home buying process go so smoothly.
