Transcript of Mortgages

Prepare a budget (housing is between 25% -30% of net income)
review your goals, why do you want to buy? Will you stay in one place for at least 5 years?
how much house can you afford? compare to current payment
Improve your credit rating (FICO of 740 + will get you best interest rate)
pay off debt, do NOT close accounts, you need the history of your credit
save lots - you need 20-25% down to be comfortable
decide on the type of house/mortgage, buy what you can afford and maintain
get paperwork in order - employment, taxes, etc.,
Check with your Bank first
pre-qualification and pre-approval

Fixed or Variable?
A fixed-rate mortgage is a loan that charges a set rate of interest that does not change throughout the life of the loan. It is the traditional loan used to finance the purchase of a home and is what most people have in mind when they think about a mortgage.

A variable-rate mortgage, also commonly referred to as an adjustable-rate mortgage or a floating-rate mortgage, is a loan in which the rate of interest is subject to change. When such a change occurs, the monthly payment is "adjusted" to reflect the new interest rate. Over long periods of time, interest rates generally increase. An increase in interest rates will cause the monthly payment on a variable-rate mortgage to move higher.

The Pennsylvania State University

A debt instrument that is secured by the collateral of specified real estate property and that the borrower is obliged to pay back with a predetermined set of payments.

Mortgages are used by individuals and businesses to make large purchases of real estate without paying the entire value of the purchase up front.
Mortgages are also known as "liens against property" or "claims on property."
in the French language, mortgage means Death Pledge
The word means the deal dies when the debt is paid or the payment fails.

Now it is your turn to do the same... Negotiation can be rough and time sensitive, so stay calm, remain flexible within your budget, always do the math...
Consider what you are willing to accept and what a deal breaker is to you
Make a list of terms (pros & cons)
keep your list handy and re-evaluate throughout the process
Once an offer is accepted, an agreement is reached, the contract is signed.

Tip: Make a list of what you are looking for including location, type of a home, features, age, school district, neighborhood, real estate tax, insurance requirements, etc., and adjust as needed...

Tip: Some lenders allow you to pay your own property taxes and home insurance premiums, but they could also raise your interest rate to compensate! need to understand escrow arrangement!

Budgeting Tips
Increase your emergency fund saving by at least 5% to allow for unexpected house maintenance cost (15% instead of recommended 10%)
Trim your spending budget to allow for the increase
Wait at least 6 month to a year before you start making any major changes to your house
Do not acquire credit card debt to accommodate additional spending on the new house
Instead of making a monthly mortgage payment, send 1/2 of your mortgage payment every 2 weeks, you end up making 13 payments in the year instead of 12 payments. you reduce the life of your loan by 5 years
prepare different scenarios of payment to accommodate your long term goal, use online mortgage calculators to help you decide the best payment option for you and your family
