Pay Off Mortgage or Invest?

Some homeowners just do not like having a mortgage and will try to pay it off as quickly as possible. Doing this could be very beneficial for some homeowners, but for some, it could be a mistake. For one thing, pouring money into your mortgage can present you with a liquidity problem. If you lose your job, or become temporarily disabled and unable to work, you may not have the ability to access your home equity. You may try to take out a home equity loan, but if you are out of work you could be denied. If it is approved, you will be adding debt while unemployed or on a fixed income. Instead of making extra mortgage payments, consider investing the extra money in more liquid options that offer growth potential or current income.

Some shorter term and lower risk options to maintain liquidity in your cash would be; a Roth IRA, money market accounts, high yield online savings accounts, certificates of deposit, short-term bonds, or paying off higher interest debt. Combining multiple investment options while still putting extra money toward your mortgage will also be a good strategy, that way you can pay your mortgage off faster and still grow your investments, allowing you liquidity, and a shorter road to debt free living!

When balancing your debts and investments, it is important to consider multiple angles so you can find what works for you, and which options will make your money go further.

Low Rates, Can You Take Advantage?

The interest rate you agree on for a mortgage heavily influences the affordability of your home. Half of a percentage point higher could make a difference in monthly payments and whether you will have enough money left over for your other financial goals, such as paying off debt. Since interest rates have been hovering around historic lows, applicants can lock down a low rate before they begin to rise.

However, if your credit score is low, it may make sense to raise your credit standing before applying for a mortgage. Borrowers who have high credit scores are more likely to get the lowest mortgage rates, which could save them thousands in interest payments over the life of the loan.

CreditServices.com can get your credit in a position to receive great interest rates and save you thousands on your home!

Seeking Mortgage Pre-Approval?

What Do Mortgage Lenders Want When Considering Your Application For a Loan?

Doing something for the first time can be daunting. You may be signing a loan to purchase a vehicle or interviewing for a new job, or it could be applying for a mortgage loan to buy your first home! Knowing exactly what mortgage lenders look at will make the process much less stressful.

There are four pillars lenders are going to consider for all home mortgage loans: property, income, assets, and credit. You will be required to supply documents showing proof of your status in these areas. You will be required to provide paycheck stubs, two years’ worth of W-2’s, and three months of statements for your bank accounts. Other required documents, if they apply to you, include divorce papers, bankruptcy information, and self-employment documentation.

The following information can also help you avoid some of the reasons why mortgage applications are turned down:

  1. Never protest when the lender requests you provide more documentation. Cheerfully provide everything they ask for.
  2. Do not apply for any more credit cards, even if it is just for a balance transfer.
  3. Do not go out while the loan is still being considered, and run up more debt, this may cause your loan to be denied.
  4. It’s not the time to change jobs while your mortgage application is in process. Before the lender will close on your loan, they will make sure you still hold the same job you had when you applied.
  5. Make sure you do not request to borrow more money than you can afford to make payments on. If your current rent is $900 per month, and you apply for a mortgage with a payment of $2,500 a month, you will need to prove you have the money to be able to make the increased payments.
