Knowledge and Resources
Mortgages can seem complex and confusing, but with a little knowledge and some useful resources, you can increase your awareness of home loans and become a confident, informed homebuyer.
When searching for a home and trying to get approved for a mortgage, it’s important that you understand certain details and terms, such as debt-to-income and loan-to-value ratios. You need to understand the difference between fixed- and adjustable-rate mortgages, as well as how credit scores are calculated. You don’t have to be a mortgage expert, but a foundation of basic knowledge will give you more confidence and increase your chances of financial success.
Using the right resources is also crucial. Resources like mortgage calculators and appreciation calculators help you plan for the future. While they can only provide a general estimate, they allow you to get an idea of your potential budget and help you compare various loan options, such as 15- vs 30-year mortgages.
