What Our Clients Say About Us
My husband and I bought a house through LBC Mortgage company. Alex made it so easy on us! To be honest, I was terrified of all the paperwork buying a house and getting a loan assumes. I was pleasantly surprised! Alex and his team helped us with getting loan approved and close fast. I would highly recommend this company.
I must say that this office is one of the few businesses I can always count on, both professionally and personally. So when it comes to California real estate funding in general and residential in particular, I’ve been entrusting my dear clients ranging from locals to foreigners to these good folks that I trust with my own loans!
Excellent experience all around From the initial mortgage application, to the closing. I want to thank everyone involved in getting this file closed and funded . It was a tricky file and Alex and his team went above and beyond to get it resolved. Highly Recommended !!! A+ Service.
Great company and easy to deal with them. Very understandable and prompt. I was dealing with Alex and he helped closing loan on time. LBC mortgage kept their words and provided 5 star service.
I am getting into the business of investing in real estate , in this business you need to act fast , and you need to be able to get financing for the property super fast ( or pay cash ). Alex approved me for the loan fast , escrow was closed on the 27th day!!! And got me a rate almost a full percent lower than i was expecting. I will contacting Alex for sure for my next investment purchase.
LBC Mortgage team did a wonderful job with my new home loan. They were efficient, friendly, and did a great job from the beginning to the end. They even got me a lower rate on my loan than I was expecting. If we ever need a new mortgage. I’ll definitely be calling LBC Morgage again.

LBC Mortgage is here to help you every step of the way. We strive to make this process as easy and smooth as possible through educating our clients about their options and making all the necessary preparations before diving into the house market.
In an effort to save our client’s time and keep the frustration away, we first help to determine the mortgage amount our client is qualified for. Generally, we recommend spending no more than 29% of client’s gross monthly income. Also, it is important to consider current interest rate, which will influence the loan amount as well. The rule is simple: the lower the interest rate, the higher the mortgage amount the client will qualify for.
Above we have mentioned a few programs we make available to our clients. Let us elaborate:
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.
- 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%.
