For many people, securing a mortgage can be an intimidating process. I know this because I have spent a great deal of my career working with and giving mortgage advice to individuals interested in purchasing property. In order to educate others from my experience, I would like to take this opportunity to provide a few tips and suggestions to those of you planning to embark on the mortgage process.
Tips and Mortgage Advice:
The first thing I recommend to anyone planning to apply for mortgage is to investigate both local and national lenders’ rates. The more educated you are on interest rates; the less likely you are to be taken advantage of. Another thing I recommend is to shop for the best variable rate. Since many mortgages usually revert to a standard rate after the discounted one has expired, it is best to find the lowest one possible.
Another thing to remember when applying for a mortgage is that it isn’t permanent. Let’s say, for instance, that you have a bad credit history and can only qualify for a mortgage with a high interest rate. If, after a year or so, you have made regular and timely payments on this loan, chances are your rating will improve and you will be able to refinance at a lower rate.
Although applying for a home loan can be a nerve-wracking process, if you follow the mortgage advice suggested above you should be fine.
