What does a mortgage company consider when reviewing a loan application?
There are several factors that are considered including:
- Employment history and income
- Credit history
- Value of the home that you wish to purchase
Which mortgage is right for me?
NVR Mortgage offers several types of loan programs to meet your specific needs including:
- Fixed Rate Mortgage – The interest rate and monthly payment will remain the same throughout the life of the loan.
- Adjustable Rate Mortgage – The interest rate and monthly payment will fluctuate over the life of the loan.
- FHA Mortgage – The loan is insured by the Federal Housing Authority (FHA) and allows you to purchase a home with a down payment as low as 3.5% of the purchase price.
- For more details check out the Rates & Loans Page
What is the next step after I complete the online applications fields?
You will be contacted by a loan officer who will schedule a consultation, most often in person. During this consultation, your loan officer will work to understand your payment and down payment preferences and help match your needs with the best program. You will also start the underwriting process during this conversation and learn about the next steps you will take to gain an initial approval.
How can I check the status of my loan?
You can check the status of your loan any time after creating an account by logging into the Loan Status
page or by contacting your loan officer or loan specialist.
When can I lock in the interest rate on my loan?
You can lock at no additional charge 45-60 days from your settlement. We recommend that you contact your loan officer when you have your pre-drywall walk-through. Locking takes place 11am – 4pm, Monday – Friday. Extended locks are available on some programs (for additional fees). Please ask your loan officer for details.
When is the pre-drywall walk-through? When is my closing?
Your Project Manager will have the best estimates for these dates. Your closing (or settlement) will be scheduled by your homebuilder. You will go to closing when your home is 100% complete.
Who should I contact if I want to change my closing date?
Contact your Sales and Marketing Representative or Project Manager.
Why do I need to give you updated documents before closing?
Before your home is started the builder wants to know that you are qualified for the purchase. NVR Mortgage will fully approve your loan prior to construction. This initial approval will most likely expire and we will need to update your financial documentation closer to your settlement date. If your initial approval expires we will need to request updated income and assets verification such as pay stubs and bank statements. About 60 days before closing we will collect all up-to-date documentation that is required for your loan to be re-approved.
Who should I make settlement checks out to, and when will I get the amount due?
You will need to bring a certified or cashier's check made out to your settlement services provider. A Closing Disclosure will be prepared for you later than three days prior to your settlement which will provide the details of your final costs required on settlement day
What should I do if I want to purchase/finance a new car or new furniture before I go to settlement?
Talk to your loan officer before making any large purchases (even if it’s 0% financing for a period of time). The monthly payments on any new debt may affect your debt ratios for your new home loan.
What should I do if I want to change jobs before I go to settlement?
Talk to your loan officer if you are thinking about changing jobs prior to settlement. This could adversely affect your loan approval.
Who should my insurance company contact regarding hazard insurance?
Have your insurance provider contact your loan specialist at least 2 weeks prior to settlement.
