Lock in Your Rates

Landsea Mortgage powered by NFM Lending understands the worries associated with the market, so the team has introduced an Extended Lock Program! This program gives you the option to lock your rate for up to 12 months – starting with a four-month lock term with no upfront fees. Select from a four-, six-, nine- or twelve-month lock. All of these options come with a free float down within 60 days of closing if the market improves! Additionally, because delays can happen, an extension of the lock term is available. Check out all the details of the Extended Lock Program here.
