Tips for lowering your mortgage payments
Everyone wants a low mortgage payment. With mortgage rates today still in the range of historical lows, now is an excellent time to lock in mortgage deals. You will need to shop around for several lenders in order to obtain the lowest bank mortgage rates. Some banks will advertise an interest rate that is quite a bit lower than average, however, before you commit to any such loan, read the fine print. Many times there are super stringent requirements that disqualify most borrowers, and you will in turn be offered a higher than average rate. Shop around, and make certain you don't fall victim to this bait-and-switch tactic.

Getting mortgage down payment assistance

Another method to help you achieve the lowest mortgage payment possible, is the use of down payment assistance programs. Some of these are outright grants given to first time home buyers, while others have to be repaid, but have a much lower interest rate. Every program available should be sought in order to achieve a very affordable mortgage payment that won't break the monthly budget.
