As you know, when buying a new home, you’ll have lots of numbers thrown at you — like interest rates, loan terms, closing costs, homeowners insurance, and property taxes. All of these will affect your monthly mortgage payment. So how can you figure out what your payment will be? That’s where our Mortgage Calculator comes in handy.
With our Mortgage Calculator, you can consider numerous scenarios and see what your payment could be, depending on the criteria you choose. For example, you can plug in different property sale prices, annual property taxes, and private mortgage insurance (PMI) costs. Let’s say you want to pay off your mortgage in 15 years, but a shorter loan term is going to mean higher monthly payments. Want to know how much higher? Change your loan term from 15 to 30 years in the calculator, and you’ll see. Play with different scenarios and numbers to see how they’ll impact your payment.
Homebuyers have trusted Embrace for more than 35 years to find the ideal home loan to fit their unique situation. When you work with Embrace, you’ll be guided through the mortgage process from beginning to closing by a dedicated mortgage expert, many of whom have a decade or more of experience in the industry. Best of all, unlike some other lenders, we can help you close a loan in weeks instead of months.
Plus, we truly care about our customers, and it shows. For two years in a row, Embrace has earned the #1 ranking in customer satisfaction in the Large Mortgage Company category by SocialSurvey. We also have a 5-star Google rating and exceptional reviews on Zillow.
There’s no greater recognition than receiving acknowledgements such as these and a steady stream of glowing reviews from our customers. It’s what we live for, and it’s why we’re one of the nation’s top mortgage lenders.
We bet you’re a savvy homebuyer, and you learned a lot the first (or second or third . . .) time around. But every home purchase is different. No matter how experienced you are, it’s wise to take the time to consider your goals, the housing market, and a few other things each time you’re in the market again.
Learn the market. The market’s always changing. Are you looking in a new area? Find out if it’s a buyer’s or a seller’s market. Check out home prices in the area, and see how long homes are taking to sell.
Research the area. Moving out of state? Do research early on in the process to better prepare yourself, because each state has different contracts, fees, etc., when it comes to buying real estate.
Think about the future. When you’re thinking about what you want in a new house, make sure to think not just about what you want now, but also down the road — things like amenities, the commute, your neighborhood, and the schools in the area.
Use a REALTOR®. Working with a real estate agent makes sense for a variety of reasons. A good REALTOR® gives you intel about the area and can help you save time and money. You’ll also get access to their keen negotiating skills and local connections, which can be very important.
