Mortgages 101

Everyone talks about mortgages and what a pain it is to pay them off. But there is a great deal of misunderstanding about what they are and what is available. Unless you are one of the lucky few who has a few extra million in your bank account, you are going to need to finance your home. That is when mortgage enters the picture. Before going in for one, you need to know what you are getting yourself into. Here is a guide to the basics of mortgages. Financing a home is a very complex and technical issue. Using these basics as a platform, consult an expert for detailed advice. If you have a master broker agent working for you, she will be able to give you a great deal of guidance on the subject.

Mortgage basics

What is a mortgage? 

If you are like most Americans, you do not have the financial resources available to buy your own home. If you need a home now and do not have the money to buy it, you will have to get a loan to enable you to buy the property you want. It is probably the biggest loan you will ever take and no matter how financially stable you are and how well you have planned for the future, the fact that you have such a large financial liability looming over you can be disconcerting. Be realistic about the home you expect to buy and get a mortgage you are comfortable with.

When should you apply for one? 

The right time to start looking for mortgages is before you start looking at Milpitas homes for sale.Comparing the options and offers available to you will need time and a great deal of effort. Rushing it could lead to expensive mistakes. Once you are pre-approved for the financing, you will be in a position to pay for the house, when you find it. Even more importantly, you will know how much you can afford to spend and can tailor your search for Milpitas homes for sale accordingly.

Where can you get one? 

The first place most people go to for financing a home is their bank. They know the organization and the organization knows them. That makes the process easier. However, the financing your bank offers you may not be the best deal available.Check out other banks before deciding where you want to apply. For those who have difficulty getting bank financing, there are nonbank lenders who are ready to offer loans to those, whom the banks think are too big a risk. Many prospective home buyers consult a mortgage broker who will guide them through a variety of options.

What are the types of mortgages? 

Basically, there are two types. The fixed rate mortgage is one where the interest rate remains fixed for the duration of the loan. The interest may be a little high, but the borrower is protected against any future interest rate increases. The opposite is true of adjustable-rate mortgage where the initial interest rate is low but will rise after a predetermined time, based on market indexes. The borrower here is subject to increased risk if interest rates rise a great deal.
