Make sure your dream home comes with a home price you can afford.
There are all different kinds of home loans. From government subsidized FHA loans, to fixed-rate mortgages or adjustable-rate mortgages, there are many different mortgage loan options to consider. But, which loan type is right for you? When reviewing loan options, it is important to consider things like loan term, PMI, and interest rate. It is also important to note that factors such as your credit score may impact the terms of the mortgage loan that you may be offered. Other factors that will impact the total loan amount for your home as well as your monthly mortgage payment are factors such as closing costs, down payment amount, whether or not you are paying property taxes out of your escrow account, and more. Getting a clear picture of the total costs involved helps home buyers choose the right home and the right mortgage for them.
