Matt Whitcomb
Pacific Sotheby's International Realty
About Matt

Matt Whitcomb brings a wealth of experience, market knowledge, and a commitment to superior service that achieves results for his clients. He attributes much of his success to the belief that every client, at every price point, deserves a full-service luxury real estate experience. Matt is a true Southern Gentleman raised on the principles of authenticity, courtesy, and respect for others. After graduating from Virginia Tech in 1999 with a double major in Marketing and Business, Matt packed his car and pioneered West to pursue his dreams. Just two weeks later he was hired as part of Universal Studios Recreation Group's Interactive Marketing team. At Universal, Matt was responsible for coordinating with both internal and external creative agencies to ensure projects remained on brand and on schedule. He also served as the key cross-divisional liaison on multiple synergy teams, co-branded promotions (Jurassic Park 3), and global technology implementation task forces. In 2005, Matt returned to Virginia to help reinvent his family's regional DISH Network business. It was during this time that Matt and his wife purchased their first home. Unfortunately, the representation they received as first-time buyers left them feeling lost and overwhelmed. It was this experience and the ultimate sale of the house that sparked Matt to commit the rest of his professional career to real estate sales. In 2013 Matt returned to California and launched his real estate career to fuse his business, marketing, and construction background with his passion for real estate. Matt prides himself on helping his clients realize their dreams and navigate necessary life changes with integrity and an authentic commitment to their success. He believes every home has a story to tell and develops well-organized and creative marketing strategies that reach a targeted audience to achieve his clients' goals and exceed their expectations. His analytic knowledge of the dynamic Orange County real estate market combined with an understanding of home construction and desire to provide support and guidance through every step of the transaction ensures Matt finds his buyers their perfect home in a neighborhood that matches their lifestyle. By aligning with Pacific Sotheby's International Realty, Matt offers his clients the unrivaled reach and innovate marketing tools provided by the world's most trusted global real estate brand and guided by leadership that understands the local market. Matt lives in South Orange County with his wife and two children and enjoys the area's diverse population, vibrant culture, and the incredible variety of outdoor activities. He is a strong community advocate and volunteers his time with great organizations such as the Tony Hawk Foundation and Cub Scouts.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is my mortgage rate determined?
Mortgage rates are a pretty complex business with many different factors influencing the rate you’re offered on a given day. Some of these factors are outside your control, like economic data and market forces. Other factors that lenders look at are based on your financial history and the details of your home purchase, including:
  • Your income and credit profile
  • Down payment amount and cash reserves
  • Any other assets
  • Property location and type
  • Loan type
  • Type of interest
Read more
What’s the difference between fixed-rate and adjustable-rate?
A fixed-rate mortgage means your rate and mortgage payment will remain the same throughout the life of the loan (though your taxes and insurance can go up over time). With an adjustable rate mortgage, you start out with a lower introductory rate for a period of time and after that period ends, your rate adjusts with the market periodically.
Read more
How do I evaluate lenders and choose the right one?
If you’re looking to save money on your mortgage, it’s important (and easy!) to do some comparative rate shopping. Getting five quotes can knock an average of 0.166% off your rate, and it only takes a few minutes. Here’s how to do it: Reach out to five prospective lenders and make sure to have the following information on hand: the home’s purchase price, your down payment amount, and your estimated credit score. Pro tip: Make sure to request a closing cost breakdown so you can see what kind of lender fees each company charges. Lender fees are one of the biggest ways buyers are surprised by higher mortgage costs than they prepare for. Once you’ve got your lender quotes, it’s time to crunch some numbers and compare:
  • Rates
  • Lender-specific fees (examples: origination fee, application fee, credit report fee, broker fee, rate lock fee, points)
  • APR
These three pieces of information should give you good context for comparing lenders. Though keep in mind, rate isn’t the whole story. Your lender should meet your other needs too. Are they communicative and do they get back to you quickly? Do they have a strong presence in your local market? Perhaps they boast some of the fastest closing timelines in your area? Don’t be afraid to ask questions and feel out different communication styles before landing on a favorite.
Read more
How do I get the lowest rate? Is the lowest rate always best?
The lowest rates are typically reserved for the buyer with strong finances, a credit score of 740 or higher, and a down payment of at least 20%. Of course, most buyers don’t tick all those boxes. To get the lowest rate possible, improve your credit score, make a larger down payment, and keep your debt-to-income ratio low. And don’t skip shopping around for rates! But what if you’re nowhere near a 20% down payment, or your credit score isn’t quite where you’d like it to be? Talk to a lender. You might be more ready to buy a home than you think. Sometimes waiting to improve your situation so you can score a lower rate isn’t worth it, especially when home prices are escalating faster than what most buyers can save. Plus, low rates aren’t guaranteed — market forces could send them climbing at any time.
Read more
Should I look at APR or rate? What’s the difference?
APR is the total cost of financing your home. It’s your base mortgage rate plus any lender fees and finance charges on your loan. Because APR factors in lender fees, it’s typically a better, more all-inclusive indicator of your loan costs than looking at rate alone.
Read more
Why does a 15-year fixed mortgage have a lower rate than a 30-year?
APR stands for annual percentage rate. With a 15-year loan, you’re only paying interest for 15 years instead of 30, so you’ll enjoy a lower rate and pay significantly less interest over time. That said, your monthly payments will be much higher with a 15-year loan, because you’re paying off that balance in a much shorter time frame. Most buyers opt for a 30-year fixed loan so their monthly payments are more affordable.
Read more
What’s the deal with points and credits?
Points allow you to “buy down” your mortgage rate by prepaying some of your interest. Usually, one discount point costs 1% of the loan amount and lowers your interest rate by 0.25%. Some lenders also offer credits, where you can pay a higher rate in exchange for cash to cover some of your closing costs. Credits are considered negative points, and a 0.25% increase in rate will usually give you 1% of your loan amount in cash to offset closing costs.
Read more
What mortgage terms do I need to know?
  • Mortgage rate: Your mortgage rate is the interest you pay on your home loan.
  • APR: Your APR is the interest you pay on your home loan plus lender and financing fees, all rolled into one all-inclusive rate.
  • Fixed-rate mortgage: A fixed-rate mortgage has the same mortgage rate over the entire loan term and the payment amount never changes (except taxes and insurance can go up over time).
  • Adjustable-rate mortgage: An adjustable-rate mortgage features a lower introductory rate for a period of time, followed by periodic market rate adjustments.
  • Monthly payment: Your monthly mortgage payment is the amount you pay each month for your home loan, typically including principal, interest, taxes, and insurance.
  • Principal: Principal is the initial loan amount.
  • Interest: Interest is what the lender charges you to borrow money.
  • Points: Points allow you to lower your mortgage rate by paying the lender some interest upfront.
  • Closing costs: Closing costs are the fees you pay to close on your new home. They include lender fees and other third-party fees like property taxes, title insurance, and escrow.
  • Rate lock: Most lenders offer the opportunity to lock in your rate for period of time — typically between 30 and 90 days — while you close on your new home.
