Mortgage Lenders

1. Most people need mortgage lenders in order to purchase a home.

Mortgage loans are very common since most people do not have the thousands of dollars on hand to purchase a home. A mortgage is a temporary loan until repayment is accomplished or until the house is sold. Because buying a home is one of the biggest financial decisions people make, it is important to find a good financial advisor and lender.

2. Qualifying for mortgage loans depends heavily on a personal income and credit history.

Mortgage lenders will verify whether or not an individual will be able to make mortgage payments based on his or her credit history. They will also look at income. For this reason, it is important to ensure that personal credit history and financial status is in good standing before applying for a loan. In most cases, an individual can have a spouse, parent, other family member, or friend cosign in the event that the individual's financial standing is not good enough.

3. Conventional fixed-rate mortgage loans have consistent interest rates and equal payments.

Conventional fixed-rates are very common and popular to apply for through mortgage lenders. The constant interest rates and levels and equal payments for a set time appeal to most consumers. People are attracted to this option because of its predictability. Adjustable rates are just as the name suggest. They have varying interest rates throughout the term. Adjustable rate mortgages (ARMs) tend to be popular when rates are high and appear to be dropping.

4. It is best to choose a mortgage loan with the shortest term that the individual will qualify for.

A shorter loan term will mean that less interest will have to be repaid throughout the years. The interest savings for choosing a shorter term can be enormous. Even if someone does not qualify for a shorter term they can pay more per year to lessen the amount of years and amount of interest paid. Interest is usually subtracted from taxable income.

5. Homes and all they entail, including financial decisions, should be first committed to God.

Psalm 127:1 - Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
