It is hard to describe how scary we were when decided to buy a house. We had no knowledge of the processing, prices, policies, calculations… When our agent referred us to Alex Shekhtam, from the first phone consultation we felt to be just in right hands. We are so blessed to have LBC Mortgage team! Our first house was purchased just because of these hardworking, reliable, efficient, responsive professionals! Recently we were able to refinance our house on good conditions, again, just because of them! Easy processing paperwork, knowledgeable advisors, pleasant communication make you feel special. We are so grateful to all and everyone from LBC Mortgage for making our dreams true!!!!

We were able to close on our first home even with a strict budget, and I credit it all to Alex and the staff at LBC Mortgage. We couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you so much!

Alex and his team were very attentive to our needs. We had some very specific criteria when looking for a home, and most mortgage companies, especially banks, were not even willing to listen to us -- but the team at LBC Mortgage was. They kept everything moving and were happy to answer our questions. We never felt like a burden to them, and that’s how customer service should be.

This was one of the last steps I needed to do in order to close on a home, and I had been putting it off because I had assumed it was a complicated and cumbersome process. I could not have been more wrong. Alex and everyone at LBC Mortgage made the process really simple and straightforward. Excellent company with people that really care about you.

People often ask me who I use for my own mortgages and refinances. Every time I recommend LBC Mortgage. They’re always working hard to stay one step ahead of the competition. To me, they’re more like family than my mortgage company. I’ve just closed my third deal with them and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

How not to mess up your chances of mortgage approval

Believe it or not, but getting a mortgage approval is not as hard for the majority as keeping it. There are a few bumps in the road, so to speak, that you should avoid.

The entire process of a mortgage approval takes about 45 days, give or take and during this time any and all events may affect your loan. For instance, losing you job or becoming ill will greatly affect your mortgage loan approval. During this time the lender has a right to revoke your mortgage approval.

Of course, such life changing events are not easy, if not, at times, impossible, to control. However, there are a few things you can keep in check. With that in mind, here is a list of things you should avoid doing between the date of the application and date of funding. Each one of these items could instigate a revocation of your approval.


Step by step

  • You should refrain from career changes, such as leaving your current job to change industries or start your own company. This also includes switching from salary to commission paid job.

  • Buying or leasing a new more expensive car might not be a great idea either. Of course, if you lease is about to expire you would have to renew it. However, you should definitely consult with your loan officer first.

  • Transferring large sums of money between accounts should be avoided.

  • Pay your bills on time, this one goes without saying.

  • Avoid opening new credit cards, even if they offer great condition. Remember, any new inquiry on your credit report will have to be explained to the lender.

  • Refrain from random undocumented deposits to your accounts. This includes cash gifts without proper paperwork. Undocumented cash deposits will provoke the lender to disallow the gift and revoke you loan.

Of course, these are just a few things we came up with. Surely, there is more. It is our mission to help you through this complicated process and successfully fund your loan.

Everything you need to know about Conventional Loans

Conventional loans, also called conforming mortgages, are ideal for first time buyer and follow simple conservative guidelines: borrower’s credit score, minimum down payments and debt-to-income ratios (a percentage of monthly income that has to be spent on pay off all borrower’s loans, credit cards and child support).

What defers conventional loan from other types of mortgages is the fact that it is not made nor insured by government entity. This make conventional loans a little more flexible to borrower’s needs. Since conventional loans are held by mortgage lenders, lenders can set their own rules and, for instance, allow the borrower to use investments, such as bonds and stacks, as a security for mortgage. This flexibility helps conventional loans to provide some features that are not available with other types of mortgages.

There are two types of conventional loans an Amortized Conventional Loan and an Adjustable Conventional Loan. An amortized conventional loan is a mortgage in which a borrower pays the same amount of principle and interest every month, from the beginning to the end of the agreed term. An adjustable-rate conventional loan is a mortgage that can fluctuate.

Who can qualify for FHA Loans

FHA loans are mortgages insured by Federal Housing Administration. FHA loans are known for lower lending standards and are highly popular among first time buyers with low credit scores. One of the most beneficial advantages of FHA loans is the allowance to get a loan with a down payment of as low as 3.5%.

FHA loans were designed as a type of federal assistance, which allows borrowers with lower income to still be able to purchase a home. For instance, FHA allows borrowers to spend up to 57% of their gross monthly income on debt obligations, in comparison with 45% debt-to-income ratio of conventional loans.

The only disadvantage of the FHA loan is the requirement of mortgage insurance. Because FHA loans do not have strict lending standards, it requires two types of mortgage insurance premiums – upfront mortgage insurance premium and annual mortgage insurance premium. Upfront mortgage insurance premium is a premium of 1.75% of the loan that the borrower has to either pay at closing or can it can be financed into mortgage. Annual mortgage insurance premium is a monthly premium which will be integrated into your mortgage payment for the life of the loan. Annual mortgage insurance premium is based on loan-to-value ratio, loan size and length and generally fluctuates between 0.45% and 0.85%.
