About Cathy Smith


Finance and Loan Details

When selling a home your home should be listed with the amount that a lender will loan a buyer to purchase it in mind. When buying a home for sale your first step is to find a reputable lender or credit union to learn what you can afford and if they have the products and programs that will meet your home buying needs. A good rule of thumb is for the monthly loan payment for principle and interest, taxes, home and mortgage insurance to be at less than 28% of your gross income. This site offers quick tools to calculate your mortgage payment and to see the Value of the Home for sale.
