Mortgage Tips

  • Credit score matters. Get a free copy of your credit report to make sure there are no errors which might negatively affect your credit score.
  • Shop around. Make sure to get multiple mortgage quotes. Over 30 years, a difference of 0.25% in APR might end up being over $10,000 in extra payments!
  • Bigger down payments are better. You can often qualify for a mortgage with as little as 3.5% down. But, unless your down payment is at least 20%, you will likely have to pay Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI). This can add significant cost to the price of the mortgage.
