Mortgage calculators are free and helpful tools made available by First Empire. See where you stand!
Because a mortgage loan is not a responsibility you should take lightly, or a decision you should rush into. Because meeting and collaborating with mortgage lenders should only be done after you gain an understanding of the process yourself. And because with mortgage calculators, you can enter a variety of factors and see how they work together in formulating your projected monthly payment. Consider the following points:
In today's mortgage market, however, math takes on added meaning for everyone. The phrase "mortgage market math" is alliterative to the point of being annoying, but still includes more than a little truth. A home mortgage is the biggest investment you will ever make. Why treat it with anything less than the utmost importance?
The factors involved in determining the amount of your first mortgage are manifold, and should be deliberated carefully. With our easy and free mortgage calculators, you can experiment with all the variables involved and give yourself an idea of what you can and cannot afford. It's a great - and cheap (and easy) - way to get started!
Keep in mind that mortgage calculators do not tell the whole story. Their accuracy is guaranteed, but more factors influence your mortgage loans than they take into account. Closing costs, for example. Your realtor may require 1-2% of the home's value as commission for his or her services. It doesn't sound like a lot, but when you consider the median home price these days, it is liable to be at least a few thousand.
Another factor is property tax. Most towns want $10-20 for every thousand dollars of your home's assessed value. Again, a few thousand dollars a year is to be expected. Also, remember that you are responsible for repairs and household expenses now. No more calling up the landlord and having things magically fixed. It's on you now, and with the pleasure of owning your home comes a lot of financial responsibility. Use it wisely.
