Consumer Mortgage Guide: Go Banking Rates Provides Key Tips and Pitfalls to Avoid When Choosing a Home Loan

El Segundo, CA (PRWEB) January 24, 2013

When performing a mortgage comparison, homeowners can easily become overwhelmed by the multitude of options available. In order to clear any confusion mortgage applicants face when shopping for a loan, Go Banking Rates has compiled a guide to understanding the key points potential homeowners should consider, as well as the most important hazards and red flags they may encounter when comparing mortgage loan offers.

While it’s important for borrowers to compare mortgage rates, Go Banking Rates explains that the terms and conditions of a mortgage loan are just as important for determining cost efficiency.

“There are a lot of mortgage options out there,” states Go Banking Rates managing editor, Casey Bond, “but for most homeowners, a simple 15 or 30-year fixed rate mortgage is going to be the safest, most affordable option.”

She adds, “One thing’s for sure borrowers should never rely on their lender to tell them what they can afford. That’s something that should be determined by the buyer and possibly a financial planner, if they choose before the mortgage comparison process even begins.”

The Go Banking Rates guide also details the “exotic” mortgage offers loan applicants should be wary of when comparing offers, as well as provides tips for determining the right down payment size and finding the most competitive mortgage interest rates.
