Maybe you run your own business and it's beginning to gain some financial traction or maybe you and your spouse have been working at your jobs and saving everything you can to move out of your apartment and into your own home.
Whatever the case, if you're considering buying a home you likely need to educate yourself about mortgages -- how they work, what to look out for and calculating what you'll be able to afford, which will impact the location and size of the real estate you eventually choose.
MortgageGuidelines.net provides free educational information to help you navigate the subject of mortgages.
If you're like me you're likely busy and always on the go. I like that Mortgage Guidelines provides a ton of free educational content in a variety of consumable formats. So if you need some audio to listen to on your commute to work, prefer a slide deck presentation or simply reading a PDF, this site has you covered.
One of the wife's best features is the mortgage calculator, which allows you to play with the numbers to determine what you can afford. It's important to budget appropriately to ensure you can realistically afford the mortgage you end up signing. You definitely do not want to cause yourself unneeded financial stress because of poor planning.
