What do I need to do to lock my rate?


Once you have decided to work with us and you like the interest rate and terms of the loan provided by your mortgage loan originator, advise them you would like to lock the interest rate in and we will secure your rate on a 30, 60, or 90 day lock depending on when you will close.

How quickly can I close my loan?


Loan Cabin usually closes loans within 21-30 days. We encourage customers to provide us with all the proper documentation up front so we can make the process efficient and simple for you.

Do I need to have an escrow account?


An escrow account is part of your total monthly mortgage payments, but go towards things like your property tax and home owners insurance. We do recommend to do this as it makes sense for your lender to make these payments for you so you do not have to worry about them. However, escrow accounts are not required on all mortgage loans. Conventional loans do not mandate you to have an escrow account unless you put less than 20 down payment on your home loan.

Can I transfer my current escrow account?


Unfortunately No. Any escrow balance with your mortgage servicer will be refunded to you by them in 2-3 weeks time.
