How to find the best mortgage for you
Once you’ve settled on the length of the mortgage, it’s time to do your research to find the best mortgage for you (see these five kinds of mortgages to consider). This due diligence will mean comparing mortgage rates from several lenders, which might include mortgage brokers, traditional banks and online lenders. It’s smart to prepare for your mortgage search by reviewing your credit report to confirm it’s correct and evaluating your financial landscape to determine how much you can afford to put toward a home each month. “The key is to make sure the client is comfortable with their budget and payment,” says Reiling.
While there is no official “best season” to shop for a mortgage since rates are driven by the market and overall economic landscape, Reiling says, “Banks are much more competitive on rates when business is slow, which tends to be in the dead of winter around January or February.”
