5 Ways To Increase Your Equity

5 Ways To Increase Your Equity

A home purchase brings together so many things under one roof: dreams, shelter, status, maybe a passport to better schools and neighborhoods. And one more thing: It gives you a forced savings account. It does that by letting you build home equity, which is the difference between your home’s market value and what you owe on it. Your equity increases with each house payment you make. When home prices rise, your equity grows faster as your home’s value increases. Here are some ways to increase your home equity… 1. Pay more on your mortgage Paying more can be a good option. If you decide to do this, make sure the extra money is applied to your mortgage principal. Ask your mortgage servicer (you can find the phone number on your monthly statement) how to do it and watch your monthly statements to be sure the money is credited correctly. Here are a few ways to pay more regularly: • Add an extra sum to your monthly payment. Pick an amount big enough to make a difference but not so big that it crimps your budget. For example, if your payment is $983, round up to $1,100, and then increase the amount when you’re able.• Another version of adding to your monthly payment: Boost the payment by an amount equal to a twelfth of a payment. By the year’s end, you’ll have made an extra payment.• Switch to biweekly mortgage payments. Paying every two weeks instead of monthly adds one extra monthly payment to your mortgage annually.• Schedule extra payments automatically from your bank to your mortgage account at regular intervals The...
8 Things You Shouldn’t Do After Applying for a Mortgage!

8 Things You Shouldn’t Do After Applying for a Mortgage!

Congratulations! You’re finally ready to apply for a mortgage or have gotten pre-approved. While this understandably provides a sense of relief, it’s not a done deal until you sign your closing papers. Whether you’re buying a new home or refinancing your current one, there are certain things you can do that could give the underwriter the impression that you will not repay your loan and could jeopardize your loan status. Before you make any big purchases, move any money around, or make any big-time life changes, consult your loan officer. They will be able to tell you how your decision will impact your home loan. With that in mind, here are EIGHT things you should never do right before or after you apply for a mortgage: 1. DON’T: Change jobs!  Proof of a steady income, especially in the same industry, is one of the most important aspects of a mortgage approval. Avoid switching jobs until your loan has closed, if at all possible. If you must switch jobs, be sure your new job is in the same industry as your old one. 2. DON’T: Deposit cash into your bank accounts. Lenders need to source your money and cash is not really traceable. Before you deposit any amount of cash into your accounts, discuss the proper way to document your transactions with your loan officer. 3. DON’T: Make large purchases on credit.  While it can be tempting to want to furnish your new home or park a brand new car in your new driveway, avoid making any large purchases on credit. This raises your DTI. It also adds inquiries to your credit report, which...
