Home Loans

Buying a home is an exciting event. Home ownership is also one of the most important financial investments you will ever make. A home can be an excellent investment and may provide you with added tax benefits.

However, since this purchase will affect your personal and financial life, you will want to approach the process knowledgeably. The following topics are ones that you should consider carefully as you move towards your purchase, especially if this is your first home. Should you have any additional questions, the mortgage lenders at TrustBank will be happy to assist you. (Contact a tax advisor about your individual tax situation.)

  • Call TrustBank and get pre-qualified for a home loan.
  • Decide on the type of home and features that are important to you.
  • Choose a real estate agent.
  • Start looking.
  • Do not be afraid to negotiate on the price of the home.
  • Contact TrustBank to help you choose the best mortgage for you.

Advantages of Being Pre-Qualified

  • Pre-qualification allows you to have a realistic price range in which to look for homes.
  • You are in a better bargaining position with sellers, since your purchase amount has been pre-certified.
  • The final mortgage application process goes more quickly since much of the paper work has already been completed.

Mortgage Loan Guide

To help you figure out your estimated monthly principal and interest payment using this guide,
follow these simple instructions:

  1. Find the interest rate that applies to your loan in the vertical column along the left side of the chart.
    Example: 7.5%
     
  2. Find the loan period in the horizontal row along the top of the chart.
    Example: 30 years
     
  3. Find the number where your interest rate and loan period intersect on the chart. This is the Principal and Interest Factor.
    Example: 7.5% interest for 30 years = 6.99 P & I

     
  4. Divide the loan amount you want to borrow by 1000.
    Example: $100,000/1,000 = $100.00

     
  5. Multiply the divided total by the Principal and Interest Factor you found on the chart.
    This will be your monthly mortgage payment amount.
    Example: $100.00 x 6.99 P & I = $699.00 monthly
