Mortgage Rates
If you are in the market of buying a house, one should contact a mortgage lender or broker to pre-qualify and find out how much you can afford to purchase. Two most important factors when shopping around for a mortgage are the interest rate and the amount of down payment you are putting down. This will determine how much each month you have to pay, rather you can afford to purchase or not.
