A rate “lock” or “commitment” is a lender’s promise to set a certain interest rate and a particular number of points for you for a specified period during your application process. This saves you from working through your entire application process and learning at the end that the interest rate has risen higher.
Rate lock periods can vary in length, between 15 to 60 days, with the longer ones generally costing more. A lender may agree to hold an interest rate and points for a longer span of time, like sixty days, but in exchange, the rate (and sometimes points) will be more than with a rate lock of fewer days.
In addition to choosing a shorter rate lock period, there are more ways you are able to attain the best rate. A larger down payment will result in a lower interest rate, because you’ll be starting out with a good deal of equity. You may opt to pay points to lower your rate for the term of the loan, meaning you pay more up front. To many people, this is a good option..
