St. Louis Mortgage Rate Update; The Do’s and Dont’s when financing your home


As the mortgage industry continues to adjust to new financial regulations, it is more important than ever to ensure that the financing (or refinancing) of your home goes smoothly. Your loan approval is subject to the financial information you provide at the time of your loan approval. Any subsequent changes in your financial situation before the actual date of closing could jeopardize your loan approval and delay your closing.
By following the simple guidelines below, you are assured a smooth and error-free closing.

The Do’s

  • Do provide any documentation to your mortgage banker when requested in a timely manner.
  • Do keep making all financial obligations on-time (credit cards, car loans, etc.)
  • Do provide proof that your earnest money deposit has cleared your bank (cancelled check, bank statement).
  • Do set up your homeowner’s insurance and provide your mortgage banker with your insurance agent’s contact information.
  • Do notify your mortgage banker if there are any changes to your sales price and please notify him or her when you receive a closing date from the builder/seller.
  • Do ask questions and be informed.
  • Do be up front with your mortgage banker.

The Don’ts

  • Don’t apply, open or co-sign for any new credit lines or have your credit pulled unless you consult with your mortgage banker first.
  • Don’t make any large non-payroll deposits into your bank accounts unless you consult with your mortgage banker first.
  • Don’t quit or change jobs unless you consult with your mortgage banker first.
  • Don’t make any large cash advances/charges on your credit cards unless you consult with your mortgage banker first.
  • Don’t take it personally if you’re requested to provide additional information about your income or deposits. All information will be kept completely confidential.
  • Don’t bounce any checks or allow your checking/savings balance to have a negative balance.
