Looking for the Lowest Mortgage Rate in Cleveland, Ohio?
Looking for the Lowest Closing Costs in Cleveland, Ohio?
Shopping for the Lowest Rate or the Lowest Closing costs, will not get you the
best mortgage for your Cleveland, Ohio Purchase or
Refinance. Rates and Closing Costs are important when considered
together along with the loan program being offered to you.
With the growth of the Internet and Cleveland
borrowers like you searching for a mortgage online, you need to consider who to
call or contact with your mortgage questions. During your online
searching you have likely found many websites that claim to offer you the Lowest
Rates or Lowest Closings costs. Few claim to offer you the Best
Mortgage based upon your individual needs. Tim Bradford and the other
Mortgage professionals at American Midwest Mortgage are Direct Lenders.
Our motto is "Doing Good Things for Good People" and that includes homebuyers
and homeowners like you in Cleveland, Ohio.
Beware, many of the mortgage websites you find on the internet make their
money from the advertising they sell on their websites as well as the money they
make selling your request for Mortgage Information to multiple lenders. I
receive many phone calls, emails and letters from the sales people on these
sites asking me if I want to buy your information. I prefer to avoid these
websites because the fees to them have to be paid by someone. I
prefer to avoid passing this added cost to the borrowers that I work with.
This generally allows me to offer you a better loan than available from them.

rental income each month. The Realtor and/or Their Broker
could have an ownership interest in the Mortgage Company where they receive
payments based upon the profitability of the Jointly owned Mortgage Company.
Ohio adjustable-rate mortgages
Adjustable-rate mortgage (ARMs) in Ohio are the loan of
choice for borrowers who want a low payment in the early
months of the loan. ARMs offer this low initial payment, but
the trade-off is the risk of payment increases later on. You
might accept this risk if you know that your income will
increase, or that you'll sell the home before the initial
rate expires. Most commonly, the initial rates remain in
force for one, three, or five years. Choosing an ARM for the proper
reasons is the key.
