Interest Only vs. Principal & Interest Payments

This calculator will help you to compare the monthly payment amounts for an interest-only mortgage and a principal-interest mortgage. Also included are optional fields for taxes, insurance, PMI, and association dues. With mortgage rates near their historic lows, fixed rate home mortgages are likely going to be a much better deal if you plan on living in the house for an extended period of time, as when rates reset on ARM loans the prior short-term savings will likely be more than offset by the higher rates for the duration of the loan, which can cause the interest-only loan payment to exceed the amoritizing 30 year fixed rate payments if mortgage rates spike high enough.

Mortgage FAQ

Q: Why is my credit score important and where do I get it? A: The three national credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian and TransUnion) capture, update and store credit histories on most U. S. consumers. Most estimate the risk a company incurs by lending you money or providing you with a service – specifically, the likelihood you will make payments.

Lennar - Sales Agent lied and UAMC (their lender) LIED Review 194007 Feb 04, Dallas, Texas, Sales Tactics @ Pissed Consumer

I recently purchased a Lennar Home in Sacramento California and am very upset at the deceitful sales tactics and the essential extortion committed by their lending company UAMC. The sales agent first told me (knowing that I am an inexperienced first time home buyer) that I am not allowed to have a realtor represent me in the deal. This alone should have tipped me off that they are operating with shady business tactics.
