How To Save Hundreds A Month On Your Mortgage


When it comes to American spending habits, the sad truth is that most people don't put their financial assets to the best use. One of the greatest examples of this is the home mortgage. Surprisingly, most people fail to educate themselves about the dangers and the pitfalls of not shopping for the best mortgage. Worst still, many have not taken advantage of low interest rates that could save them hundreds of dollars a month.

In addition to saving large sums of money every month, the homeowner in question would save thousands overall on the standard 30 year mortgage. This is before other cost saving measures such cutting unnecessary services, refinancing a car loan, paying off credit cards (to end the high cost of monthly double digit interest) and changing spending habits. The power of such a rate reduction could be used by millions of American homeowners to reduce debt, invest in retirement, or to simply put money away for an emergency. It is amazing that so many still neglect to utilize these powerful and straightforward techniques.

This then begs the question of where to start in order to reap the rewards of refinancing your mortgage. When it comes to finding home mortgage information, the Internet has become a boon to the weary researcher. In fact, finding sites about mortgage refinancing is far from the hard part when it comes to searching the 'Net. Perhaps the hardest part about searching for financial information online is insuring that one will indeed get the best quote.

In order to help you in your online search for a better home mortgage rate, I have listed a few tips and questions below:

Will your credit rating be a hindrance to a new loan?

Will the lender work with you if you have bad credit?

Are you getting a new loan to refinance your rate? Or are you getting a loan for a secondary reason (paying off debt or home improvement needs for example).

Have you seen your credit report lately? Is it accurate?

Are there steps that you can take in the short term to improve your credit score before you get the mortgage quote (such as paying off small debt or challenging negative items on your credit report)?

Does the site giving the mortgage quote, give you a quote from more than one lender? Some sites give you quotes from up to four lenders at once.

Is the quote free? Also, you should be under no obligation should you decide not do business with the lender.

These are just a few of the points that one should remember when searching the vast resources of the Internet for answers to your financial questions. If used wisely, a new mortgage could be the step that changes your financial future for the better.
