texas: What in the World is an APR? - 09/16/14 11:30 AM
 
During the mortgage process there can be many terms or items that come up that may cause questions.  One term that can cause questions is the APR.  The APR stand for Annual Percentage Rate.  And comes in the form of a percentage rate.  This percentage rate can be found on the TIL, Truth In Lending Form.   The main thing to keep in mind is that this is not your interest rate.  As many times seeing two %’s on your mortgage documents can be very confusing. The majority of the time your APR will always be higher than your Interest Rate.

texas: USDA Annual Fee is going up on loans approved after 10/1/14 - 08/25/14 10:15 AM
