Home Mortgage Loans - Fixed Rate, Adjustable Or Balloon, Which One Is Right For You?Written by Carrie Reeder
Continued from page 1
Often, adjustable rate mortgages are advertised with extremely low interest rates, which will be in effect for a short period of time. When introductory period is over, mortgage rate will rise to its normal amount.
Choose an adjustable rate mortgage when you have secure income that is likely to increase along with economy. It's a good mortgage when interest rates are stable, or if signs suggest that they're about to fall.
A balloon mortgage is often a last resort for home buyers who can't qualify for more traditional loans. The balloon mortgage has a fixed interest rate and monthly payments for a specific amount of time. At end of that time, entire loan comes due - hence name 'balloon'. In practical terms, a balloon rate will give you a fixed monthly payment for several months. After that, you'll essentially have an adjustable rate mortgage.
Choose a balloon mortgage loan for substantially lower initial rates, or if your credit limits other types of mortgage that you can apply of qualify for.
Now that you understand your options for mortgage loans, donít forget to shop around! The interest rates and fees can vary wildly from lender to lender, so make sure that you get best deal that you can!

Get Out of Debt Written by Medha Roy
Continued from page 1
Of course, in keeping with saying, prevention is better than cure, you should try and not get into debts in first place. True, easier said than done, but it is not wholly impossible. Make a list with two columns. One has details of your income and other, your expenses. Do away with anything you want, but don't really need. You want to go for a trip abroad, but you need a new dishwasher. Go for dishwasher. Whatever you are left with after paying all your bills, try keeping your money in bank. If possible, open a savings account. This is a good way of paying your self instead of paying creditors.
Careful and wise thinking not only saves you a lot of trouble, but it also keeps you out of debt. If required, keep your credit cards out of reach. When you go out shopping, make a list beforehand and calculate amount you need to spend. Carry cash, if it is very difficult to resist temptations. This will make you yearn for things you would love to own but, in long run, it will save you from untold miseries. Small sacrifices have always saved world. Make smaller sacrifices to protect your world from crumbling down. To get out of debt, don't get into it in first place!
