Recently I was driving in my Car and I heard an Ad for a Mortgage lender who claimed they would help you find the Best Loan out of over 400 Different Loan Types. 400 Different Loan Types now that has to be confusing. How do you find the Best loan for you. Clearly the Best loan for you is not the Not the best loan for your bank. Learn the Secrets your Banker doesn't want you to Know.

Some Questions to ask when Choosing a Loan.

  • How Long will you keep the Loan?

  • How Long will you keep the House?

  • How much profit is the Bank Making on this Loan?

The Average Homeowner will get a New Loan every seven years. If you are going to move or refinance in the Next 7 Years is a 30 Year Fixed rate loan Really Best for You. A 30 Year Fixed rate loan is certainly Best for the banks. A Typical in Force 30 Year Fixed rate Loan in force today has an Interest Rate of between 5 and 6%. The Average cost of Funds for a Bank is about 1% (How much interest do they pay you own your checking account, Your Saving account). This means on a 30 Year Fixed rate Mortgage the bank Earns about 4% to 5%. If you keep your loan less then 7 Years why get a 30 Year Fixed rate Loan.

Some Lenders are offering loans with Payments Fixed for 5 Years based on a 1.95% Interest rate. If you look at a standard 200,000 Loan at 5% the Monthly Payment would be $1073 the same Loan at 1.95% would have a Monthly payment of $734. $339 a Month Less. $4068 a Year Less. If you were to invest this 4068 at the end of 5 years with a 5% Return you would have over $22,700.

Using Equity Indexed Annuities that Pay a 10% Bonus for all payments made in the first 5 years a 5% Return is very reasonable. Equity Indexed Annuities have another advantage in that they accumulate tax free. So now which is the best loan for you?
