Fixed rate mortgages have a locked interest rate that will remain the same for the life of the loan. The interest rate on an Adjustable Rate Mortgage will change on an annual basis after the predetermined initial interest rate period expires.
With a Fixed Rate Mortgage, the rate and payment will remain the same throughout the life of the loan. If you want to change the terms of your loan, you will have to refinance.
There are few factors that determine how much you will be qualified to borrow: credit history, Debt-to-Income Ratio and Loan-to-Value/ down payment.
Specific credit requirements vary based on a range of criteria including loan-to-value, debt-to-income ratios, previous credit history, and assets used to qualify for the loan, but in general successful applicants will have average or better credit history.
Specific debt-to-income requirements vary based on a range of criteria including loan-to-value ratio, assets used to qualify for the loan and credit history but typically a successful applicant will have a total debt-to-income ratio (including the proposed loan payment) up to 36-45% of gross monthly income.*

Conventional fixed rate mortgages can be used to buy a home with as little as 3% down payment when private mortgage insurance (PMI) is purchased.
Your rate is calculated based on a variety of factors, including credit qualifications, loan-to-value, loan amount and other criteria.
When you buy or refinance, your credit score is one of the first things a lender looks at. It helps them determine if you qualify for a loan, and what interest rate they can offer you.
Factors that affect your Credit Score:
Your credit score reflects how reliable you are as a buyer, and is determined by your track record of borrowing and repaying banks, credit card companies and other lenders.
Lenders start with the par rate, then look at your risk profile to determine what rate they will offer you.
Rates are usually based on a combination of the following factors:
Escrow Payment – That portion of a mortgagor's monthly payments held by a lender or servicer in an account to pay taxes, hazard insurance, mortgage insurance, lease payments, and other items as they become due. Also called impounds or reserves in some states.
An Escrow Account on your loan allows PNC Mortgage to make payments for certain bills related to your property, such as real estate property taxes, homeowners insurance, flood and other property related insurance, and mortgage insurance. Home buyers are generally required to have an escrow account until a certain loan to value ratio is met.
Escrow Analysis – The periodic examination of escrow accounts to determine if current monthly deposits will provide sufficient funds to pay taxes, insurance, and other bills when due.
Your annual Escrow Analysis Statement contains all the information you need to understand your previous and projected mortgage payments.
