Applying For A Mortgage Is A Simple And Easy Process

Nov 8, 2007
We all want to own property. Some of us dreamed of having a house from a very early age but of course we never know anything about mortgages, home loans, bonds and terms like debt consolidation. So what it is a mortgage? Is it as complicated as it sounds?

The simple answer is no. It is all very simple. The mortgage amount is the amount of money you borrow from a lender to pay for your house. Home loans are self explanatory but what is debt consolidation? The easy answer is also this. Debt consolidation means that we can get a second mortgage on our home. By getting a second mortgage we can pay for other debt that we might have. That is called debt consolidation.

The bank or the lender that will give you a mortgage on your home will ask for security. Now this is easy because the house itself serves as security for the bank. What this means is that if you are not able to pay off your mortgage the way you and the lender agreed on, the lender (e.g. bank) will take your house and sell it. That way they are able to pay off the mortgage amount you initially applied for.

Getting a low interest rate on your mortgage is crucial. When you apply for a mortgage loan the lender will determine the interest rate. The mortgage interest rate depends on your capability to pay the lender back. If you are young and havent had any debt in the past the chances are that the lender will classify you as a high risk client. The reason for this is because you dont have a credit record for them to know if you will be able to pay back your mortgage amount. Therefore they will either turn your application down or give you a high interest rate.

There are 2 types of mortgage home loans. The first is a fixed interest rate mortgage home loan. This means that the interest rate that you are paying will stay the same for the duration of the mortgage period. The other type is a flexible mortgage home loan interest rate. The flexible interest rate will go up or down depending on the current market conditions and national economy. Consequently, your mortgage home loans term may go up or down but the monthly mortgage payment will remain same.

In order to get a mortgage you will have to complete a mortgage application form. In this form you will need to fill in information such as your personal details, income details, credit history and the details of the property that you propose to buy. After you have completed the mortgage application form a surveyor will survey the property and evaluate it. By doing this the lender will establish if the property is worth the amount of the mortgage. On successful verification, you will be granted the mortgage loan amount to purchase your home.

As you can see there is really nothing to it. The bank or some other kind of lender will do this all for you and make it very easy.
