So, I’m reading CNBC’s website the other day, as they’re a great source of mortgage information (and news, of course) and I ran across THIS ARTICLE saying that a full 1/3 of people that responded to their survey didn’t know their mortgage interest rate? What? This is one of the absolute most important facts that you need to know about your finances, and people don’t know? I thought it was crazy, until I checked with Bankrate and saw their survey.
People, knowing your home mortgage loan rate is ESSENTIAL to your financial health! I mean, this means that if you know your rate, odds are that one of your neighbors on either side doesn’t! A full 35% of responders didn’t know their rate, and one in seven said that they THOUGHT they knew, but weren’t confident. This is the biggest bill that you pay every month! While you may know the amount you pay, the interest is how much EXTRA you pay, so you want it as low as possible, right? If you want to plan your monthly budget, wouldn’t it be nice to spend a little less every month if you have a crazy high rate?
We know that the purchase of a home is really stressful. You’re getting papers shoved under your nose the entire time, and the BIG question is always going to be “How much am I paying every month?” That’s OK, it’s an important question, and other things can fall by the wayside. No matter what, though, you need to know this information. With the FHA dropping their PMI rate (That’s Private Mortgage Insurance) to pre-2011 rates, this is the perfect time to refinance OR buy a new home.
