preparing for the unexpected

3 THINGS TO BE AWARE OF WHEN TAKING ON A MORTGAGE:

1)  LOAN IS APPROVED UNDER A SET OF CIRCUMSTANCES…INCLUDING INCOMES ( JOINT OR INDIVIDUAL INCOMES)…LOT OF APPLICATIONS RELY ON ONE OR MORE OF THE APPLICANT WORKING MORE THAN 1 JOB TO SERVICE THE LOAN…WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO LOAN REPAYMENTS IF 1 INCOME IS LOST OR JOBS ARE LOST IN AN UNEXPECTED SITUATION? PREPARE FOR THESE SITUATIONS BY NOT BORROWING TO THEMAXIMUM AND ALSOPROVIDING FOR A LITTLE BIT OF EXTRA REPAYMENTS WHEN THE LOAN REPAYMENTS START…THIS WAY YOU CAN REQUEST THE LENDER TO RESTRUCTURE THE LOAN AND SCALE BACK REPAYMENTS.

2)  PROPERTY PRICES WIL CHANGE WITH TIME…YOU WILL EXPERIENCE PRICE SWINGS IN BOTH DIRECTIONS….DO NOT BE DISTURBED BY DOWNWARD SWINGS IN PRICES….ENSURE YOU BUY AT THE APPROPRIATE PRICE…THERE IS NO FOOLPROOF METHOD TO ENSURE THIS…YOU HAVE TO DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE BUYING AND MAKING YOUR OFFER.

3)  LOAN REPAYMENTS ARE BASED ON CURRENT INTEREST RATES AND WILL CHANGE WITH TIME. BE PREPARED FOR HIGHER REPAYMENTS WHEN INTEREST RATES INCREASE. ONE WAY OF PREPARING IS TO TRYAND START MAKING REPAYMENTS AT HIGHER INTEREST RATE LEVELS IF THE FAMILY BUDGET ALLOWS YOU TO. THIS WAY YOU ARE NOT TOO MUCH BOTHERED WHEN AN INTEREST RATE HIKE INCREASES YOUR REPAYMENT.

IF YOU ARE NOT PREPARED FOR EVEN ONE OF THE ABOVE THREE, TAKING A MORTGAGE IS NOT AN OPTION YOU SHOULD SERIOUSLY CONSIDER.
