How do I get the lowest mortgage rates in Michigan?

Getting the lowest interest rates on your mortgage in Michigan is important to save money over the life of your loan. A difference of even a half percentage point can cost you thousands of dollars over the years.

To ensure you get the lowest mortgage rates in Michigan be sure to check with a local mortgage company or mortgage broker. A mortgage broker can often times offer lower interest rates than the big banks because they have lower overhead and less costs in doing business. Additionally they may be able to structure your mortgage loan in a way that you get rock bottom rates.

After you find the right company for your home loan, you should consider other factors that determine your rate. Bank and lenders set their rates based on risk. The more risky the investment for the bank, the higher the interest rate they need to charge.

To get the best rates you will need a 25%+ down payment, 780 credit scores (or higher), conventional financing and a short mortgage term. For example, a 10 year mortgage will offer lower rates than a 30 year fixed mortgage. This is because there is less risk for the lender because they will get their investment back quickly.

5 tips to get a low mortgage Rate

  1. Improve your credit score by paying bills on time, reducing outstanding debt, and limiting new credit applications.
  2. Make a larger down payment, as it reduces the amount of money you need to borrow.
  3. Shop around for rates and compare rates from multiple lenders.
  4. Consider a shorter loan term, such as a 15-year mortgage, can result in a lower interest rate than a longer term, such as a 30-year mortgage.
  5. Look into government-insured loan programs, such as those backed by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) or the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), which can have lower mortgage rates than conventional loans.
