I enjoy our Lunch and Learn seminars because they give me a chance to share helpful information, and I get to hear what’s on everyone's mind when it comes to personal finance.
In this blog, I've got some answers to the questions we get in our popular free seminar on home buying, The Road to Home Ownership. This seminar is offered at different times and locations throughout the year, so be on the lookout!
For anyone considering buying a home, I have four do-it-yourself online calculators to share today. Credit for these goes to our financial partner, BALANCE. What I like about them is that they answer questions we all have when thinking of buying a home, and we can find answers simply and privately. So here are the questions with links to the calculators:
- How much mortgage might I qualify for?
- How much home can I afford?
- How much will my fixed-rate mortgage payment be?
- How much will my adjustable-rate mortgage payments be?
By the way, BALANCE is a great resource for personal financial information, and you can contact a counselor there to discuss your questions and get financial advice. The toll-free number is 888-456-2227 and is available Monday through Thursday, 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. (PST). On Fridays, the hours are 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PST) and on Saturdays, you can reach a BALANCE counselor between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. (PST). Note these are Pacific Standard Time hours.
