Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) - Throughout the life of your loan, the interest rate that is applied to the outstanding balance will vary. Adjustable-rate mortgage caps apply a limit to how much the interest rates or payments can rise per year or over the loan’s lifetime. Typically, an ARM is expressed as two numbers. Most of the time, the first number shows how long the fixed rate is applied to the loan. The second number shows how often it will change.

Annual Percentage Rate (APR) – The APR includes the origination fee, or fee you pay your lender to process your loan application, and other charges from interest on the mortgage at the annual interest rate. The APR will be higher than the ‘Locked-In’ interest rate because of the origination fee that is included in this calculation. It is a good guide for comparing the annual cost per loan with the different mortgage program types.

Appraisal – A licensed professional appraiser compiles information from properties that are comparable and details about the subject property.

Closing – To finalize the sale, the Buyer, Seller, Title Company’s Escrow Agent, and Real Estate Agents meet to finalize the sale.

Credit Report – This report reflects the payment history of a person. It is generated by full name, address, and social security number. This also reflects Public Records for any bankruptcy, liens, or judgments.

Discount Points – A fee paid by the buyer to decrease the interest rate of the mortgage. A ‘point’ is 1% of the loan amount.

Escrow – An account for the Buyer’s money that is set up through the mortgage lending process. It is for the payment of future property taxes and one year of homeowner’s insurance.

Loan Origination – The fee for mortgage financing services.

Loan Origination Points – a fee that’s paid by the Buyer to the Lender above loan origination. A ‘point’ is 1% of the loan amount.

Prepaids – These are the property taxes, homeowner’s insurance, and the interest paid outside of the closing or included in the fees of the mortgage loan.

Principal – This is the true balance amount of the mortgage, not including the interest.
