How can I get preapproved for a mortgage?
After you submit your loan application, you may be instantly preapproved if we have all the documentation we need. If that's the case, you'll be able to access your preapproval letter in the Documents section of HomeSquad. Keep in mind that we often need additional information after you submit your application. In that case, a home loan advisor will contact you in 1 to 2 business days to discuss next steps.

How long does it take to close on a mortgage?
It typically takes 30 days to close on your mortgage once you’ve submitted all required paperwork and documents. However, closing times vary based on many factors, so check with your home loan advisor early in the process to better understand when you can expect to close.
If you're planning to refinance your home, closing times are estimated to take 30-45 days.

Yes, membership must be obtained by at least 1 borrower for initial loan approval. Any additional non-member borrower(s) must become a member as a condition of loan approval.
(a) To be eligible to exercise the no-refi rate drop (Rate Reduction) option and receive a reduction to the interest rate on your loan, you must meet all of the following criteria:
(1) Your loan is one of the following fixed-rate mortgage loan products: Homebuyers Choice, Military Choice, or 15- and 30-year Jumbo Fixed loans (collectively, “Covered Loan Products”) with Navy Federal Credit Union. Cash-out refinance transactions, however, are not eligible for the no-refi rate drop option.
(2) (A) You must contact us and request to exercise the no-refi rate drop option; (B) the reduced interest rate for your loan must be at least 0.25% lower than your existing rate when you request to exercise the no-refi rate drop option; (C) your loan must be current with no more than one monthly payment, which includes principal, interest, taxes, and insurance, that has been 30 days late or more within the last 6 months of your request; (D) you have made at least 6 consecutive monthly payments, which includes principal, interest, taxes, and insurance, on your loan since closing or the last time you exercised your no-refi rate drop option; (E) you do not have an active bankruptcy case pending or you have not filed for bankruptcy protection within 6 months prior to your request; (F) your loan is not in an active loss mitigation option, process, or consideration; and (G) you continue to own the property, notwithstanding successor-in-interest exceptions.
(b) You must pay a $250.00 fee each time that the no-refi rate drop option is exercised. There is no limit on the number of times the no-refi rate drop option can be exercised if all applicable criteria are met each time.
(c) Exercising the no-refi rate drop option will permanently reduce your interest rate, as well as the remaining principal and interest payments on your loan but will not modify any other terms contained in your loan documents, including the principal balance, maturity date, and additional amounts due for escrows as part of your monthly Periodic Payment under your Security Instrument.
(d) RATES AND TERMS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AT ANY TIME WITHOUT NOTICE. To exercise the no-refi rate drop option, you must contact Navy Federal. You are solely responsible for monitoring Navy Federal’s available rates and determining when to exercise the no-refi rate drop option, subject to the eligibility criteria identified above. Contact Navy Federal at 1-703-255-8665, Option 1, to check your eligibility and current rates. Navy Federal will only reduce the interest rate of a Covered Loan Product under the no-refi rate drop option if all applicable criteria are satisfied at time of your request to exercise the option. These terms and conditions do not constitute a commitment to lend, nor a guarantee that you will be approved for a mortgage loan from Navy Federal Credit Union.
(e) Choice loan products require a 1.00% origination fee, which may be waived for a 0.25% increase in the interest rate; are subject to a funding fee of 1.75% of the loan amount; and the funding fee can be financed into the loan up to a maximum of 101.75% LTV, or the fee can be waived for a 0.375% increase in the interest rate.

You must lock your rate with Navy Federal prior to submitting rate match request to qualify. A Loan Estimate and the rate lock disclosure from the competing lender must be received within 3 calendar days of locking with Navy Federal. The rate must be locked with the competing lender.

If the loan does not close within the commitment period, the rate match may be voided. NOTE: The initial Loan Estimate from a wholesale lender/broker is not an acceptable document for a rate match submission unless the Lender Information section on the Loan Estimate is completed.

Not valid if original loan terms or conditions change prior to closing.

Recipient is solely responsible for any personal tax liability arising out of this incentive.↵

The program is only available for individual home purchases/sales in the contiguous US, Alaska, and Hawaii, excluding Iowa and all employer-sponsored relocations. You are not required to receive financing through Navy Federal Credit Union in order to receive the benefits of this program. The cash back is only available with the purchase or sale of your home through the use of a program-referred and approved real estate agent, and is offered in most states, with the exception of Iowa, Alaska, and Oklahoma, and is not available in certain transactions with restricted agent commissions (including many new constructions, For Sale by Owner, or For Sale by iBuyer transactions). Your assigned agent can help you identify any transactions where the cash back would not be available. The amount of your cash back depends on the value of the property you are buying or selling. Obtaining the full $9,000 cash back requires transacting in a property valued at $3 million or greater. To calculate your potential cash back amount, please visit the RealtyPlus website: https://navyfederalrealtyplus.com/. The cash back offer is limited to one cash back per property with no limit on the number of times you may use the program. In some states, a gift card or commission credit at closing may be provided in lieu of the cash back. In Kansas and Tennessee, a MasterCard MAX gift card will be issued with preloaded points that are ready for spending at specified retail establishments after closing. State regulations in Kansas limit the dollar amounts and the type of incentive. In Mississippi, New Jersey, and Oregon, a commission reduction may be available at closing in lieu of cash back.
