- Current mortgage balance
- Your current balance is the total amount you owe on your mortgage. It is the difference between the original amount borrowed and the money you have paid toward the principal so far. If in addition to your 1st mortgage, you have a 2nd mortgage (or a home equity line of credit) include the combined outstanding balance from your 1st and 2nd mortgage. Contact your lender to find out your exact outstanding balance.
- Who owns/backs your loan?
This field helps us determine whether you are eligible for special programs such as HARP or FHA streamline refinances.
To see if your loan is owned or guaranteed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, use the following lookup tools:
To find out if you have an FHA-insured loan:
- Check your monthly statement to see if you have a mortgage insurance premium (MIP). This is what FHA calls its mortgage insurance — so if you see it on your statement, you have an FHA-insured loan; or
- Check your closing docs and find your closing statement (called a HUD1). Look in the top-right corner on the first page and see if you find a HUD 13-digit case number in this format: 000-0000000-000. If you do have a HUD case number, you have an FHA-insured loan.
- If you're still uncertain, call your lender or servicer.

- Annual base salary (before taxes and expenses are deducted)
- Any recurring commissions, bonuses, overtime, and tips that you expect to continue

Note: If you are applying with a co-borrower, include both your and your co-borrower's annual income

- Minimum credit card payments
- Car payments
- Student loans
- Alimony/child support payments
- Any house payments (rent or mortgage) other than the new mortgage you are seeking
- Rental property maintenance
- Other personal loans with periodic payments
Note: If you are applying with a co-borrower, include both your and your co-borrower's monthly debts.Do NOT include:
- Credit card balances that you pay off in full each month
- Existing house payments (rent or mortgage) that will become obsolete as a result of the new mortgage you are seeking
- The new mortgage you are seeking
- Home Use
- Lenders offer different rates for mortgages depending on how the property will be used. For example, a loan for a rental property is more expensive than a loan for a primary residence because lenders believe investors are more likely to stop paying their mortgage and walk away from a rental property than they are from their own home.
- Cash out
Enter the amount of additional cash you would like to take out.
Cash-out refinancing means you refinance your mortgage for more than is currently owed, then you use the difference to pay for things such as home improvements, buying a car, paying for school, and vacations, just to name a few.
- Have you or your co-borrower been foreclosed on in the last 7 years?
Foreclosure is a legal process by which a bank or lender sells or repossesses a mortgaged property because the borrower could not pay the loan.
Foreclosure does not mean you cannot get a loan, but the terms of your loan may not be as favorable.
While you don't need to tally up every asset you own, include your largest assets. Lenders typically look at both your liquid assets and non-liquid assets. Liquid assets are things you could access quickly such as checking, savings or stock accounts. Non-liquid assets are things you own but which you probably cannot sell immediately like real estate assets.
To calculate the value of your real estate assets,use the fair market value minus your remaining mortgage balance to get the equity total. (e.g., $250,000 fair market value minus a mortgage balance of $100,000 = $150,000 in equity)
Note: If you are applying with a co-borrower, include both your and your co-borrower's assets.
- Loan programs
- There are two main types of mortgage programs: fixed rate and adjustable rate mortgages (ARMs.) Fixed rate programs: Fixed rate loans have the same rate and monthly payments for the life of the loan. The number of years describes how long it will take to pay off the loan. Fixed rate loans are good for people who do not plan to move or refinance for many years. They are also good for people who have a lower tolerance for risk and want predictable expenses. The downside is that fixed rate mortgages typically have higher interest rates than adjustable rate mortgages. ARM programs: ARMs have an introductory period when the payments are the same each month like a fixed loan. After the introductory period, the payments can change to be higher or lower. For example, a 5/1 ARM has a fixed rate for 5 years and then adjusts once per year for the remaining 25 years of the loan. ARM payments are usually cheaper than fixed-rate payments during the introductory period. If you believe you will sell or refinance your home before the introductory period ends, an ARM loan might make sense for you.

Your loan-to-value (LTV) ratio is high
Your loan-to-value (LTV) ratio is high
You may not see many loan options because the loan amount requested is close to the full value of the property. This is called a high loan-to-value ratio.Visit Zillow's Negative Equity Resource Center to learn about additional refinancing options.
Your requested loan amount is low
Requests for home loans less than $50,000 typically receive fewer quotes.
Your requested loan amount is too high
Your requested loan amount may be higher than the conforming loan limit in your area. Consider a larger down payment to decrease the loan amount needed.Learn more about conforming loan limits.
Your debt-to-income (DTI) ratio is high
It is more difficult to obtain a loan with a high debt-to-income (DTI) ratio. Lenders calculate DTI ratios to ensure you are able to comfortably pay your mortgage along with your other debts.Learn more about debt-to-income (DTI) ratios and work to pay down your other debts such as credit cards, student loans and more.

- Total Lender Fees
Includes lender, government and other fees associated with the loan quote submitted by the lender. Other 3rd party fees may apply.
Note: A lender may offer a credit to reduce your out of pocket cost. You may be able to use this credit to pay fees associated with your mortgage transaction.
Closing costs, also known as settlement costs, are the costs incurred when obtaining your loan. For new purchases, these costs also include ownership transfer of any collateral property from the seller to you. Costs may include and are not limited to: attorney's fees, preparation and title search fees, discount points, appraisal fees, title insurance, and credit report charges. They are typically about 3% of your loan amount, and they are often paid at or just before your loan closes.
Funds often needed to close a loan, such as homeowners insurance, property taxes, and escrow impound account funds, aren't included in closing costs and are considered separate. You should be prepared to pay these costs before your loan closes.
- Total Loan Amount
The amount of money being borrowed, calculated by subtracting the down payment from the purchase price (e.g. Purchase price = $300,000; Down payment = $100,000; Loan amount = $200,000), and adding the upfront FHA mortgage insurance premium that is included in the total loan amount.

- Third Party Fees

- Title insurance
- Recording charges
- Transfer taxes
- Homeowners insurance
These fees are estimates and can vary depending on the company. Typically lenders will recommend providers for you but you can shop around to save money. Follow up with the lender to get a full list of closing costs.

The interest rate is the yearly rate charged by a lender to a borrower in order for the borrower to obtain a loan. This is usually expressed as a percentage of the total amount loaned. Note that rates may increase for adjustable rate mortgages.
Annual percentage rate (APR) is the cost of credit expressed as a yearly rate. The APR includes the interest rate, points, lender fees, and certain other financing charges the borrower is required to pay. Using APR to compare quotes is helpful because it takes into account both the interest rate and financing fees. The APR is calculated by Zillow.
