The Monthly Payment

Once you have decided to take out a home mortgage loan, you will want to know approximately how much your monthly payment is going to be. Option One Mortgage wants consumers to know that depending on how much money you have for a down payment, how much you plan to borrow, and the interest rate, your payment can vary. It is important to take all these factors into account.

Within the monthly mortgage payment, there will also be other costs, such as escrow accounts and, if required by your lender, private mortgage insurance.. If your loan is originated by Option One Mortgage, your loan officer will make it a point to explain to you every component of your monthly mortgage payment. Educating consumers is an important concern of every lender who offers loans originated by Option One Mortgage.

Make sure you have a monthly payment you can afford. Your loan officer will work with you to be certain the amount of your mortgage loan is a good fit with your financial situation.

Remember, there are certain expenses associated with homeownership that may not be a part of your budget as a renter. Examples include association fees, utility bills, garbage pick up fees, and others.

Be sure you take these additional expenses into account when planning your budget once you have taken possession of your new home. If you are unsure how much to budget for certain expenses, such as water and sewage service for example, ask a friend or neighbor about how much they typically pay.

Option One Mortgage encourages first time buyers to have a specific and realistic understanding of their financial obligations as a homeowner.
