Do your HOMEwork

It seems like the past two weeks in our house has been all about home loans. Husband and brother in law have been working on buying an investment house, and husband and I have been talking about equity loans.

If you are also contemplating buying a home or refinancing your mortgage, you may want to check out www.ehomemortgages.com. They have various tools on the site to help you decide including payment and interest rate calculators. Mortgage rate is no laughing matter in today's economy, so it really helps if you do some research before jumping on the first offer you get. Learn about different types of loans and estimate the interest rate and payment you should be making before meeting up with a loan officer. The more you know, the better armed you are to negotiate a good deal.
