What is an Extended Rate Lock?
An extended rate lock is a mortgage loan option that allows home purchasers to “lock” in today’s interest rate and guard themselves from the added cost of rising rates before they settle on their new home. A lower interest rate translates into a lower monthly payment, making extended rate locks particularly valuable in a market where rates continue to rise.
First Home Mortgage’s latest Extended Rate lock program offers the upfront safety of a locked interest rate for up to 350 days while you wait to settle on your new home!
Who Can Benefit from an Extended Rate Lock?
An extended rate lock is a particularly valuable tool for homes that are under construction. Extended locks secure your interest rate and protect you from the potential of paying a higher rate at the time the home is completed.

Fixed Rate Loans: Lock in interest rates for 110-350 days!*
ARM Loans: Lock in interest rates for 110-170 days!*
*Non-refundable up-front lock fee applies. Fee percentage varies based on loan type and length of rate lock.
