What are the pros and cons of a fixed rate mortgage versus an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM)?
Fixed rate mortgages are for the risk adverse. Guarantees a fixed rate the entire term of the loan that borrowers know will never change. Adjustable rate may have advantages such as lower initial start rates, but do eventually change. the product is more for individuals who are looking for short term benefits or housing.

Always provide your loan officer all requested documents upfront. Your loan officer has the knowledge to request what is needed initially and will help to assist to avoid the need for future requests due to information not being provided that was request at time of application.
