Understanding mortgages is helpful when buying Highlands NC real estate. There is far more to a home loan than a simple interest rate and understanding terms, conditions, and timing are but a few things that will help you get started on the right foot. Sit down with your Highlands REALTOR to gain some insight on the financing process and get recommendations for reputable local lenders at the same time. As with anything, the more educated and knowledgeable you are about the loan process the smoother it should be.
A few terms associated with home loans include APR, ARM, amortisation, and compounding interest to name a few. The longer the term of your loan the more interest you will end up paying. Knowing your goals with your new Highlands property will help you understand which loan type is best for you. If you plan on holding on to your home for the long term, for example, you probably do not want an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM).
