Types of Mortgage Loans Available in Iowa

Depending upon your situation, we recommend you read about the following basic home mortgage loans:

How Your Credit Score Affects Your Mortgage Rate

To start you need to know what your current credit score is. You should compare that with the average Iowa credit score which is 698. The average national credit score is 677. Your credit score can impact what your home mortgage rate could be. Historically, home mortgage rates have ranged from 5% to over 13%. Iowa and national mortgage lenders create their home mortgage rates by using the Federal Discount Interest Rate (FDIR) and then raising it by using a secret formula to create their own home mortgage rate. When you apply for a home mortgage, your home mortgage rate will be determined by a whole host of factors, including your credit score.

Satisfaction of Mortgage

After completion of mortgage payments, the mortgagee provides the mortgagor with a written document stating such.  The mortgagor then has thirty days to complete the proper proceedings on the matter.  If he/she fails to do so within the time limit, he/she will be responsible for damages and attorney fees.


Lenders are not frequently allowed to foreclose.  Courts usually declare a moratium.

For non-agricultural property, the foreclosure may be judicial or non-judicial.

Judicial proceedings take four to six weeks.

In non-judicial cases, the borrower gives the property to the lender.
