  • If you meet the qualifications (i.e. credit history, income, etc.) for the loan on your own you would not need a co-applicant.

  • The higher your credit score the better your interest rate will be.

  • Your interest rate will depend on a number of factors including but not limited to: type of loan, credit score, type of collateral, and down payment. Please ask your mortgage lender for additional information.

  • How long the process takes depends on the type of loan you have applied for and how quickly we can obtain the necessary supporting documentation.
