60 Day Lock and Shop Program

60-Day Lock and Shop Program

First Entertainment offers a 60-day rate lock on a first mortgage pre-approval without a property being selected so you can start shopping for your dream home. This program is ideal for homebuyers in a competitive market. Locking in a rate can protect you from the time the lock is confirmed to the day that the lock period expires. With our Lock and Shop program, if mortgage rates go up, yours will not change. And if rates go down, you may be eligible for a one-time rate float down option.
