Before You Apply

To generate a pre-qualified rate we create a soft inquiry, which does not affect your credit score. You may see this soft inquiry on your credit report, but it’s only visible to you and not to other creditors or users of your credit report. However, submitting your application will result in a hard inquiry and may affect your credit score.

Application

Figure uses an Automated Valuation Model (AVM) to assess the value of your property in order to generate a pre-qualified offer. This model takes into account metrics such as recent sales of similar properties, public data records, and historical price trends in the housing market to reach an assessment of your property's worth. If you decide to proceed with an application, we will order a full appraisal to determine your property's value.

Sure, as long as you meet the minimum requirements for each loan.

1. Accrued interest 2. Principal balance 3. Escrow 4. Fees 5. Remaining unpaid principal balance

Figure utilizes independent third parties to conduct the appraisal, inspections (if applicable) and title search. They'll reach out directly to schedule appointments. Figure may contact you for additional information or to faciliate the process. Please call us anytime at 1-888-819-6388.

Mortgage rates can change daily. Start your application today to find out what rate you qualify for.

The interest rate is the cost you will pay each year to borrow the money, expressed as a percentage rate. It does not reflect fees or any other charges you may have to pay for the loan. An annual percentage rate (APR) is a broader measure of the cost to you of borrowing money, also expressed as a percentage rate. In general, the APR reflects not only the interest rate but also any points, mortgage broker fees, and certain other charges that you pay to get the loan. For that reason, your APR is usually higher than your interest rate.

Troubleshooting

You are not obligated until signing your final loan documents. However, you will be charged for any fees incurred during the processing of your loan, which could include (but is not limited to) appraisal fees, credit report fees, title and settlement fees.

If we identify a variance in your stated income compared to verified income, we'll let you know. You'll have the option to connect to additional accounts, provide additional information (e.g. pay stubs and tax returns), or select a lower loan amount based on your verified income. In some cases we'll decline your application if your verified income does not qualify for a loan.
