How To Get The Best Florida Home Mortgage Rate

Once you find your dream home for sale in the Florida MLS listings directory, it's time to shop for a Florida home loan. First, make sure you are comparing current Florida mortgage rates for the same type of mortgage. Florida home mortgage rates and closing costs can change quite a bit from day to day, therefore, if you're comparing offers from more than one mortgage lender, it should be done on the same day. For example, if you are comparing mortgage rates and receive a quote for a 30-year fixed rate at 5.75%, be sure you only compare it to other 30-year fixed rate quotes at 5.75%.

Next, make sure you compare the total of all points and lender fees for each home mortgage (from section 800 to 813 on the Good Faith Estimate), that will give you the price of the mortgage. The lender with the lowest total cost has the best home mortgage rates.

If you are planning to refinance your Florida home, you should also review the cost of title insurance, closing/attorney, and appraisal fees. Some large national mortgage companies have negotiated great rates for these services on your behalf. The company who has the lowest combination of total points, fees and third party costs for the same rate and product has the best mortgage rates.
