Regions Bank Loan Application
How is Regions Mortgage different from other lenders?
Apart from the usual fixed-rate and adjustable-rate mortgages, Regions Bank has to offer some special loan programs for qualifying borrowers. These products can be helpful for buyers who need additional resources to afford a home. Among the varying financing options also include Construction and Renovation Loans. Besides, Regions Bank also participates in many government loan programs, including FHA, VA and USDA Rural Development mortgages.
When can I lock-in an interest rate with Regions Bank?
You will only be able to lock-in a favorable interest rate when you find a property and submit the sales contract. To lock-in your rate, you should contact the mortgage loan originator of the bank. The bank closes your loan usually within the interest rate lock period, but you may need to re-lock if your closing is delayed under certain circumstances.
How can Regions Bank help borrowers pay off faster and build equity fairly quickly?
Regular mortgage payments are due every month. However, a borrower can ask for an equity accelerator program known as Regions Biweekly Express Mortgage Program. Under this arrangement, you can make payments every two weeks that will result into 26 biweekly payments or 13 monthly payments in a year. With an extra monthly payment every year, you will be able to pay off faster and build equity quickly.
Do I need an escrow account to pay my taxes and insurance?
An escrow account is usually needed with Regions Bank, so your payment will include all its usual components, including taxes and homeowner’s insurance, and perhaps flood insurance and private mortgage insurance (PMI). Sometimes, the bank requires you to take care of your taxes and insurance all by yourself. In that case, an escrow account is not needed.
