A Quick Guide To Purchasing Home/Office Building Loans

When it comes to buying any building, you should know the type of house/office building you prefer – its surroundings, its location, the atmosphere of the house, and especially its features. You should also consider the longevity of the house and the accessibility of the place.

Mortgages, too, come in many styles — and recognizing which type you should choose is just slightly more involved than, say, knowing that you prefer hardwood floors over wall-to-wall carpeting.

First things first: To pick the best loan for your situation, you need to know what your situation is. You need to consider some things  like the length of your stay in the building, and your financial status. Next: You’ll want to have an understanding of the different loans that are out there. There are lots of options, but it can get a little complicated.

Types of Mortgage:

In buying houses, mortgage comes in  two ways- the fixed mortgages and the adjustable mortgages.

Fixed Mortgages.

  • A 30-year fixed-rate mortgage offers a lower monthly payment for the amount borrowed.
  • A 15-year fixed-rate mortgage offers a lower interest rate but a higher monthly payment because you’re paying off the loan amount faster.

Adjustable Mortgage.

  • Adjustable-rate mortgages have a reputation for being complicated so make sure to read the fine print.
  • It offers a lower interest rate compared to fixed-rate mortgage for an initial period of time — like five years and up— but the rate can fluctuate after the introductory period is over but that depends on the changes in interest rate conditions. And that can make it difficult to budget too.
  • Different lenders may offer the same initial interest rate but different rate caps.

Bottomline: When comparing adjustable-rate loans to fixed-rate loans, ask the prospective lender to calculate the highest payment you may ever have to make to avoid issues
