Real Estate Agent in Adrian, MI explains Mortgage Points to First Time Homebuyers

Adrian, MI (PressExposure) August 13, 2009 -- Mortgage terms, financing, points, interest and equity are a few words that are commonly heard in the real estate and mortgage industry. New homebuyers can be overwhelmed by all there is to learn; many are too embarrassed to ask questions that they believe anyone would know the answer to.

Mark Goedert, a real estate professional in Adrian, recently spoke at a home buying workshop. He said, “The fact is many homeowners do not understand mortgage terms and financing. They simply sign the line where they are told to so they can be homeowners. Many are very disappointed when they receive their statements each month; they cannot believe how little of their payment is going toward principal.”

Mark showed the group how the mortgage payment is broken down in principal and interest and how the interest is calculated each month. He also told the participants how they can pay points in exchange for a lower interest rate. “A point is equal to 1 percent of the loan amount; one point on a $100,000 mortgage would be $1,000. The decision to pay points is based on how long you intend to own the home and ho much you save by reducing the interest rate.”
