The best way to ensure you get a good rate on your mortgage is to become an informed buyer. The more you know about mortgages, the more you'll be able to save, and that doesn't just mean knowing where to find the best interest rate. While interest rates play an important role in determining the price of your mortgage, there's always more to a mortgage than just the interest rate. Here are 3 things you need to know about mortgages to make sure you secure a favorable rate. Understand The Fees Involved - And How To Avoid Them: Aside from the interest rate, the biggest factor affecting the price of a mortgage is often the fees involved. These fees won't always be easy to find, so you might have to do some homework if you want to compare fees charged by different lenders. Sometimes, it's pos...

For most people, their home is their largest asset, so they want to maximize that asset by getting top dollar when they sell. Here are a few reasons you might not get top dollar when you sell - and how to avoid them! Selling At The Wrong Time: From early spring to late summer is home-buying season for most people, especially those with children. Putting your house on the market during this period is when you are likely to get top dollar for it. Early fall is also a good time to list your home. Winter - especially December - is the worst time to list. If you list your home outside of prime selling season, you are likely to get less for it than you could have otherwise. Not Staging Your Home Properly: Many people think of staging as simply rearranging the furniture or changing curtains, b...

As prices continue to rise across the board with everything from food to gas, it's no wonder that real estate prices are high in many cities across the USA. While this is the case for a large number of cities, there are also certain areas in which prices are decidedly low. Here's a small look at the most affordable and unaffordable cities within America. The Seven Most Unaffordable Cities: Oakland, CA - Though Los Angeles and San Francisco are 2 California cities that may first come to mind, Oakland is also highly expensive when it comes to real estate, with a median home value of nearly $450,000, which is over 100 percent more than the national average. Los Angeles, CA - Los Angeles is another city in California that is particularly unaffordable. With a median household income of just ...

Most people don't know whether or not a single missed mortgage payment can have serious consequences for their credit score. The good news is that there are things that can be done to mitigate the damage and help anyone who has missed a payment repair their credit. What are some options to help homeowners get back in the good graces of their creditors? Own Up To The Mistake: The best thing to do is to admit that the payment was missed and immediately make amends for it. For the most part, mortgage lenders are sympathetic to the fact that people miss payments for reasons that may be beyond their control. By calling the lender as soon as it appears that a payment may be late or not forthcoming at all, it is easier to make arrangements to roll that payment back into the mortgage or take ot...

Once you have found that perfect home with the right price and every little feature you were hoping for, it's important to keep in mind that the home has been presented in a way that accentuates its highlights and shadows any flaws. For this reason, it is crucial that you get a home inspection before completing a purchase. Many sellers also have inspectors investigate the home in order to determine its sale value. As such, they should be aware that a prospective buyer will want to request an independent inspection to verify the findings. Reasons For Home Inspections: If you are the one purchasing the home, getting an inspection is likely to be the most important investigation you need to perform to ensure you are getting the best value. It can also help to know what reasons each party h...

Is it always the best idea to pay off a mortgage over 30 years? While it may help a homeowner lower his or her monthly payment, it can mean paying more in interest and waiting several more years to build sufficient equity in the home. The question is...how can a homeowner reduce the amount of time it takes to pay off a mortgage by refinancing his or her loan? A few methods for reducing your mortgage term are explained below. Refinance From A 30-Year Mortgage To A 15-Year Mortgage: For those who don't want to wait any longer than necessary to pay off their home loan, it may be possible to refinance to a shorter-term mortgage. Instead of taking 30 years to pay off the loan, a homeowner can opt to pay off the loan in 10 years or 15 years. The shorter the term, the less interest will be pai...

If you're thinking about putting the house on the market, or are simply curious about its value in the current economic atmosphere, it's essential to get an honest assessment of its value.

Consider these three key tips to get a true assessment of a home's value. Identify Positive Features About The Home And Property: When seeking an appraisal for a home, it's important to look at the big picture. While the neighborhood and specific location are important, as well as the size and condition of the home, it's also essential to tally up any improvements or upgrad...

If you're thinking of buying a home, you've probably been thinking a lot about your credit score as well. Credit scores control so much of what we do in the world of finances, but what does your credit score really have to do with your mortgage? Here are three ways that your credit score could impact your mortgage application. Your Credit Score Affects Your Ability To Get A Mortgage: The first thing your credit score tells a lender is whether they should lend to you at all. In some cases, if you have a very low credit score, you may not be able to obtain a mortgage at all. Different lenders will have different criteria for determining safe and unsafe lending situations. Typically, if you have a score below the 600 mark, you'll have trouble obtaining a mortgage. If you're worried about a...
