Buying a home can be fun, however it is also very stressful as you wait to learn if your mortgage has been approved. There are many things that must be taken into consideration before an approval. Keep reading for simple tips anyone can use to help get them through the home mortgage process. Before you apply for a mortgage, know what you can realistically afford in terms of monthly payments. Don’t assume any future rises in income; instead focus on what you can afford now. Also factor in homeowner’s insurance and any neighborhood association fees that might be applicable to your budget.

Work with an experienced mortgage expert who understands how to find the best home loan for you. Not all lenders are the same, and although many my be approved to do FHA or VA home loans, many charge different fees. Get a copy of your credit score before you apply for a FHA mortgage. It is best to know where you stand before you complete an application for a new mortgage. You should check your credit even if you are sure you have a good score since identity theft or mistakes can occur. Never take out a new loan or use your credit cards while waiting for your home mortgage to be approved. This simple mistake has the potential of keeping you from getting your FHA home loan approved. Make sacrifices, if need be, to avoid charging anything to your credit cards. Also, ensure each payment is received before the due date. Do not close out any credit card accounts while you are in the middle of applying for a loan. This will negatively impact you since all of your credit cards were used when determining your eligibility for a loan. If you need to close your account for any reason, wait until the loan process is over.

Current interest rates on home mortgages are lower than they have been in years. Experts expect them to begin increasing again shortly, so now is a great time to purchase a home and finance it at a low rate. The shorter the term of the mortgage, the better the rate you will be able to get. Consider having an escrow account tied to your loan. By including your property taxes and homeowners insurance into your loan, you can avoid large lump sum payments yearly. Including these two items in your mortgage will slightly raise the monthly payment; however, most people can afford this more than making a yearly tax and insurance payment.
