Real Estate Home Mortgages/Buying with Cash then Loan later


Hi, If I buy with cash first then after 3 month get loan. Would the rate be the same? Would the rate be higher than the current rate? Could it be quicker than 3 month?

The interest rate is determined by the mortgage backed security market, and available on the day that you lock in a loan.  It's impossible to know where the interest rates will be in 3 months.  No one has a magic ball that can guarantee what the future will hold, or where the interest rates will be.  The standard time it takes to complete a home loan transaction is from 30 - 45 days, depending on the issues that arise during the loan process.
