eClosing saves time (and trees!)

Many of our mortgages now qualify for eClosings, which means you could potentially close on your new home from anywhere you choose. In addition to eClosings, here are some of the many conveniences of using UBT for your home loan:

  • Working with a loan officer who understands your financial big picture and recommends the right mortgage for you 
  • A brand your seller can trust; you’re presenting a pre-qualification letter backed by a personal review of your buying power
  • A quick and easy online mortgage application
  • Software that makes it easy for you to upload required forms and get them to your loan team right away
  • If your mortgage qualifies for eClosing, you can streamline the process and close from virtually anywhere you choose

Should I refinance my home?

Although each situation is different, there are several reasons to refinance including:

  • To lower your monthly principal and interest payments.
  • To move to a secure, fixed rate loan.
  • To take cash out of the equity in your home.

For more information on refinancing your home, call 402-323-1128 in Lincoln, or toll-free 1-800-297-2837.

What are closing costs?

Closing costs cover all the fees and expenses associated with a loan transaction. Closing costs may include fees for an appraisal, credit report, title insurance, survey, and points. Closing costs vary depending upon the loan product.

What is an appraisal?

An appraisal is a report made by a qualified person, who sets forth an opinion or estimate of property value. Among other considerations of value, the appraisal uses recent local real estate sales activity as a major basis for valuation. 

What is title insurance and why do I need it?

Title insurance protects against problems with the title to your property, such as someone with a legal claim against the home.  Learn more about Lenders and Owners title policies. 

What is Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI)?

PMI is protection for the lender against loss if a borrower defaults. Typically for Conventional loans, PMI is required if your down payment is less than 20% of the purchase price. For example, on a purchase price of $100,000, PMI would be required if you put less than $20,000 (20% of $100,000) as a down payment.  Other types of loans such as FHA, VA, and USDA have similar versions of PMI.
