  • Should I take the risk of buying my first (or second) home during this economic crisis?

    Yes. When buying a home, even in our current tough economy, a few important rules are constant. First, buying a home is an investment. Being easily the most important purchase in a person's life, buying a home can be an awesome and overwhelming task. Nor should it ever not be viewed as a typical purchase. Even in our current economy, a home does not have to be a depreciating asset. Like with any other investment there is risk, but with the right investment plan, you can and should expect it to be an appreciating valuable, and any risk can be managed. Lastly, really knowing how much you can afford may be as simple as tracking your monthly budget. The most fundamental rule is to spend less than you earn and invest in quality.
  • How do I find a good lender?

    It is always a good idea to compare rates from several different companies before you sign anything. There are several key factors to keep in mind when choosing your mortgage lender.
    Points are simply additional finance charges tacked on to the beginning of a loan. They can be paid upfront or spread out over the life of the loan. Although adding them into the loan makes upfront costs lower, it greatly increases your total cost since this process is simply paying interest on interest.

    Closing Costs are additional fees and expenses necessary in order to transfer ownership of a property. Some examples of typical closing costs are title insurance, title searches, court filing fees, and survey charges. Sometimes closing costs are called settlement costs. These fees are not the same with every lender so be sure to include them in your comparison.

    Another factor in the rate that you will be offered is your credit rating. Someone with a good credit rating provides a much lower risk to the lender so a lender will be able to offer you a lower rate. Nevertheless, keep in mind that no matter what your credit rating is, the lowest rate isn't always the best deal. Looks at all factors and figure out the long-term numbers that you can live with.
  • How much house can I afford?

    Don't rely solely on your lender for an answer. Use the classic 28/36, which limits post-purchase housing expenses to 28 percent of gross income and caps total debt obligations to 36 percent of gross income.
    Online calculators like CNN/Money's payment calculator can help you do the math.
