Mortgage Basics
A Tutorial on Mortgage by Investopedia
Bankruptcy Valuation
Creditors, debtors, lawyers and other parties in interest involved in the bankruptcy and restructuring process often rely upon appraisers for a number of decisions such as property management, development, investment, re-financing, and most commonly, liquidation and disposition of assets
Understanding the Mortgage Payment Structure
Just about everyone who buys a house has a mortgage. Mortgage rates are frequently mentioned on the evening news, and speculation about which direction the rates will move has become a standard part of our financial culture
Shopping for a Mortgage
To pre-qualify for a mortgage, you meet with a lender and provide information about your assets, income and liabilities. Based on that information, the lender will roughly estimate how much money you can borrow. The entire process is informal. The lender does not verify the information provided, nor charge you a fee, and he does not formally agree to approve a mortgage for the amount you are pre-qualified to borrow.
Home -Equity Loans
A home-equity loan can be a good tool for savvy homeowners looking for a convenient way to borrow money. Many home-equity loans offer an attractive interest rate (compared to those offered by credit cards and other types of loans), and borrowers can deduct the interest when they file taxes. But not all home-equity loans are alike. Getting a loan that offers competitive rates, fees and terms takes a little extra effort. Here are a few items to keep in mind when you start shopping for a home-equity loan.
Paying off your Mortgage
You've taken the leap and decided to buy a home. After signing a mountain of paperwork, you are now the proud owner of your own residence. Thirty days later, when the first mortgage payment comes due, you are hit by the reality of what you have done. You have taken on 30 years' worth of massive payments in an economy that makes no promises about long-term job stability. In this article, we look at the benefits of paying off your mortgage as soon as you can and give you pointers on how to do it.
The True Economics Of Refinancing A Mortgage
A mortgage is more than a monthly payment. It is a debt instrument used to finance an asset.
Mortgages: Fixed-Rate Versus Adjustable-Rate
Fixed-rate mortgages and adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs) are the two primary mortgage types. While the marketplace offers numerous varieties within these two categories, the first step when shopping for a mortgage is determining which of the two main loan types - the fixed-rate mortgage or the adjustable-rate mortgage - best suits your needs.
Mortgages: The ABCs Of Refinancing
Refinancing a mortgage means paying off an existing loan and replacing it with a new one. There are many common reasons why homeowners refinance: the opportunity to obtain a lower interest rate; the chance to shorten the term of their mortgage; the desire to convert from an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) to a fixed-rate mortgage, or vice versa; the opportunity to tap a home's equity in order to finance a large purchase; and the desire to consolidate debt. Some of these motivations have both benefits and pitfalls
Mortgages: How Much Can You Afford?
Regardless of where you live, how much you earn or what type of house you are shopping for, as soon as you find out how much the seller is asking, your first reaction might be something like, “Wow! That's expensive!” Your initial assessment is correct. With prices rising quickly, particularly in areas like New York and Boston, even starter homes can carry hefty six-figure price tags. Your next reaction is likely to be, “Can I afford that?”
