Select A Mortgage Loan To Fit Your Financial Situation. Before you apply for your mortgage loan, you’ll need to decide which type of loan may be right for you.
- Conventional Loans have a fixed principal and interest rate for the entire life of the loan. It’s easy to budget for this type of loan because your monthly payment will usually be the same.
- Adjustable-Rate Loans usually start with a lower interest rate than a conventional loan. We’ll let you know how much the rate can adjust over the life of the loan, so you’ll know from the beginning the absolute maximum amount you would ever have to pay. If you will be moving in a few years, or if you think interest rates will be going down, you’ll want to consider an adjustable-rate since monthly payments may be lower.
- FHA/VA Loans offer lower interest rates, require a relatively small down payment, and are insured through the Federal Housing Administration.
Once you know approximately how much a home is in your price range, then use a Mortgage Loan Calculator to estimate your monthly payments based on the principal and interest. Closing costs are normally paid in a lump sum at the time you take out the loan. Other annual expenses such as taxes, insurance, and mortgage life insurance are also not included on the calculator but may be added to your monthly payments.

Is Refinancing Right For You? Generally, it’s a good idea for you to consider refinancing whenever the interest rate for mortgages is more than two percentage points below your present mortgage. Call us today at (352) 521-3526 to learn more.
