    I would like to commend Antonio Alvarez on his professionalism and his concern that my wife and I understood the process and making sure that all of our questions were answered.

    As a former Manager for Diversity at a major Fortune Five Hundred Company, I appreciate Antonio answering my request on what the diversity breakdown was for Chase's Mortgage Loan Department.

    He and Kenny Oshinnilu are both professionals that I would recommend everyone to work with.

    My experience was so smooth from start to finish thanks to Antonio Alvarez. He is amazing and literally answered any question I had and listened to every concern. My home buying experience was the best it could be because of him. He was always available regardless of the time or day and provided me with reassurance. As a first time home buyer, I really did not know what to expect but Antonio is passionate and such a professional at what he does and it really shows. I truly believe I was able to purchase this home in record time thanks to his support, hard work and great communication skills. I would recommend Antonio to any of my loved ones. It was a pleasure working with Antonio and the rest of the Chase team.

    First and foremost, Antonio X Alvarez was truly outstanding in our dealings. He understands that buying a home and the mortgage is not an event, but a process and is diligent, polite, informative, and respectful. He always had all the answers, and the few times he did not, he reached out with an answer within 24 hours. In fact, I have a personal friend that handle loans and I still decided to work with Antonio.

    My only feedback is the website. The Chase phone app works really well, however, the MyHome / mortgage / computer websites do not. At no point I felt my information was at risk or that there was security vulnerabilities, so that's obviously a plus. But it seems the log in process struggles between perhaps two or more banking systems?

    I would log in into a website and it would take me multiple log ins to the same websites and links to so I could finally access MyHome and sometimes it would access my bank accounts. I am computer savvy and I expected much more in this regard. The reason this needs to be corrected is due to functionality, mortgage clients on average are not computer savvy, and multiple website/log ion attempts might lead to unfounded suspicions of fraudulent behavior.

    Everything else went well and was either good and/or acceptable. I was pleasantly surprised with how streamlined the information requests were in my case, so in this regard, the right direction is being taken.

Frequently Asked Questions

When is it time to stop renting and buy a home?
When debating between renting vs. buying, you need to think about your lifestyle and finances. While renting can provide more flexibility, owning a home enables you to build equity in the property and may provide tax benefits.

Buying a home is a huge step, especially when you’re moving from renting to owning.
How can I get information on mortgage loan options?
At Chase, you can choose from several types of mortgage loans to finance your home purchase. A Home Lending Advisor can help you understand the differences between the various loan options so you find one that best suits your financial situation.
Once you understand what you want out of a home, determining your housing budget is essential. After determining a loose housing budget, you'll need to decide how much you'll be comfortable paying each month. Your real estate agent will help you find the right home based on all of these factors. Looking for more information? Read our guide on “How to Find the Perfect Home!”
What documents will I need to apply for a mortgage?
Traditional loans usually require documents that verify your employment, income and assets, and may include:
• Your Social Security number
• Pay stubs for the last two months
• W-2 forms for the past two years
• Bank statements for the past two or three months
• One to two years of federal tax returns
• A signed contract of sale (if you've already chosen your new home)
• Information on current debt, including car loans, student loans and credit cards
What is better: a fixed or an adjustable interest rate?
If you plan to be in your home for more than seven years, you may want to consider a fixed-rate mortgage, which offers predictable payments and long-term protection against rising mortgage interest rates. If you plan to be in your home for seven years or less, an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) could be attractive. Keep in mind that with an ARM, your monthly payments have the potential to go up each time your interest rate adjusts.
