Types of Mortgages
How much house you can buy also depends on your mortgage’s term and interest rate. The term is the length of time (usually 15 or 30 years) over which payments will be paid. The rate can be fixed (meaning it doesn’t change over the loan’s term) or adjustable (it fluctuates with market conditions). Thirty-year fixed-rate mortgages remain the most popular. The longer term lowers the monthly payment, page while the fixed rate provides stability over the life of the loan. Given relatively low interest rates, approved these mortgages are attractive to buyers planning to stay at least six or seven years in their new home. The drawbacks are low principal payments in the early years, and the risk that market rates will decline over the term. However, if your credit history is sound and you have sufficient income, you can usually refinance your mortgage when rates decline.

A 15-year term lowers the interest rate, reduces total interest payments, and increases principal payments. But it also increases monthly payments. If you can’t afford the higher payments now, you might opt for a 30-year mortgage. If there are no prepayment penalties, you can make additional principal payments as your income increases. Making just one extra monthly payment a year will pay off a 30-year mortgage in less than 22 years and can save tens of thousands of dollars in interest costs. If you plan to stay in a home no more than three years, you might want an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM). ARMs offer initial rates that are lower than fixed mortgages. At some point, usually after the first year, rates are tied to market conditions and are subject to potential rate increases. Most ARMs include a cap on rate increases in any given year, as well as over the life of the loan. Some ARMs offer initial rates at least 2% below fixed rates and limit increases to 1% annually and 5% to 6% over the life of the loan. Many home buyers are attracted by the affordability of an ARM during the initial period. However, you should be confident that your future income will be sufficient if both interest rates and your monthly payments increase.

Another popular mortgage involves a balloon payment. A balloon is a lump-sum payment that pays off the loan in full after a fixed period of time. Generally the rates on balloon mortgages are 1/4% to 3/4% less than on 30-year fixed mortgages, but during an initial period of between 3 and 15 years, payments are similar. After this period, the remaining outstanding principal balance is either due in full or subject to refinancing. This is a good option for home buyers who plan to sell before the final payment is due. But because property values fluctuate, you may not be able to sell when you want. You may also face higher payments if you are forced to refinance at a higher rate, and there is also a risk that you may not be in a position to refinance when the balloon becomes due.

Three Steps to Finding the Right Mortgage

Estimate how long you expect to live in the house. If the answer is less than three to five years, consider an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM), which typically starts out with a lower rate. If you plan to live in your new home longer than five years, a fixed-rate mortgage offers protection against rising interest rates.
Shop around for mortgage rates. Banks, credit unions, and mortgage companies all offer mortgages. Compare at least six lenders in your area.
Add up all the costs for each lender. Include fees, points, closing costs, etc., to arrive at the total mortgage cost for each lender.

My original strategy for this was for it to be a dark, check gothic castle with gargoyles and trees. I don’t know what occurred, check possibly an attempt at reclaiming childhood or hallucinogenic drugs. (This is a crappy blurry photo, I’ll do a greater scan later.)

  2. A psychadelic budgie fortress isn’t sinister? Okay, whatever you say.

    Good work, looks great.

  3. Yeah, it does have a bit of the creepy. I think the acidic green background gives a little bit of a sinister edge.

  4. I just caught the "no drugs I swear" tag. Very nice.

  5. Very pretty! I love it.

  6. Thanks for the annotations, Dave.

  12. I worked there from 1999-2001 and worked the Haunted Castle on occasion.

    Despite the job being a drag at times, I met a lot of cool people working there and were probably the best times of my high school life.

    Do you remember what all the buttons on the control panel were for?

  14. I worked there from 85-87. I worked the castle two weeks out of that time. Mostly Dante’s, the Igloo (snowman to visitors) and Log Flume.
    I miss that place very much.

  15. I could relate to what you were saying.

  16. I book marked this article.
