A mortgage in Marin County, California is a real estate lien placed on somebody's property in exchange for a loan, usually taken out for the purpose of purchasing the property in the first place. Most American homebuyers finance their purchase with a mortgage, since it would be nearly impossible for most individuals to pay the full price up front.

Of course, purchasing anything on credit in Marin County, California costs more in the long run than the purchase price, since lenders make a profit by charging interest on their loans. However, for many individuals, this is a fair tradeoff for the ability to buy a house.

How Can I Get A Mortgage in Marin County, California?

Many Marin County mortgages are obtained from banks, and before providing such a large amount of credit, the bank will require you to present a credit report, an accounting of your debts and assets, your employment history, and proof of your current income, among other things. In Marin County, California, you will also have to make a downpayment on the house. You should have more than enough money to cover this payment saved up well before you consider buying a home, since you don't want the downpayment to put a huge burden on your finances.

It may take a few days, several months, or something in between for your mortgage to be approved, so you should plan ahead. There are a few various interest schemes that a Marin County, California lender may use on its mortgage. First, there are fixed-rade mortgages, that have the same interest rate throughout the entire life of the loan (though this might change if you refinance).

There are also adjustable rate mortgages, which allow the lender to change the interest rates. These usually start with a much lower interest rate than a fixed-rate mortgage, but which may eventually increase significantly later in the life of the mortgage. These different systems have their own advantages and disadvantages, and you should speak with a financial adviser to see which one is right for you.
