Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What are my closing costs for my Elements Financial mortgage?
A: The specific amount of your closing costs will vary. A home loan often involves many fees, such as the appraisal fee, title charges, closing fees, and state or local taxes. These fees vary from state to state and also from lender to lender. To assist you in evaluating our fees, we've grouped them as follows: third party fees, taxes and other unavoidable costs, and lender fees.
Fees that we consider third party fees include the appraisal fee, the credit report fee, the settlement or closing fee, the survey fee, tax service fees, title insurance fees, flood certification fees, and courier/mailing fees. Third party fees are fees that we'll collect and pass on to the person who actually performed the service. For example, an appraiser is paid the appraisal fee, a credit bureau is paid the credit report fee, and a title company or an attorney is paid the title insurance fees.
Fees that we consider to be taxes and other unavoidable costs include state/local taxes and recording fees. These fees will most likely have to be paid regardless of the lender you choose. If some lenders don't quote you fees that include taxes and other unavoidable fees, don't assume that you won't have to pay it. It probably means that the lender who doesn't tell you about the fee hasn't done the research necessary to provide accurate closing costs.
Lender fees such as points, document-preparation fees, and loan-processing fees are retained by the lender and are used to provide you with the lowest rates possible. This is the category of fees that you should compare very closely from lender to lender before making a decision.
Q: How can I apply for a first mortgage loan?
A: Nearly 95% of our first mortgage applications are online applications. The online application will ask you questions about your home and finances. If you qualify for online approval, you will get a loan decision in 60 seconds and can then print off your pre-approval letter. After completing your application, a loan officer will contact you and will be your loan officer to help you and provide any support you need along the way. He or she will also be asking you for any information required to make a decision about your loan. We will also order an appraisal and title work. Your loan officer will be available to you at every stage of this process, and your loan status will be available online 24 hours a day. After we have received all of your required information, the appraisal and title work, we'll contact you to coordinate your closing date. Your closing will take place at the office of a title company or attorney.
Q: Does Elements Financial have any deals for first time homebuyers?
A: First-time buyers can purchase a house through our First Time Homebuyer Program without a significant down payment. Further, there's no PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance), a benefit that can translate to considerable savings over time.
Q: Why should I consider getting pre-approved before buying a home?
A: You should contact a Mortgage Loan Originator to see if you can be pre-approved for a loan so that you know what price range you can afford, to evaluate the monthly costs of a mortgage, and to see how much of a loan you can afford. The pre-approval will also give you some leverage when negotiating with the sellers.
Q: How much will it cost me to refinance my first mortgage with Elements Financial?
