Americans are always on the lookout for a good deal. They delight in hunting for discounted jeans or snagging 25 percent off on the latest gadget. But Americans aren't shopping around for one of their most expensive items - their mortgage.
Studies found that 47% of all homeowners considered only one lender or broker for their mortgage.
A lower interest rate helps you in two ways: more of your payment goes toward your principal, and you'll make lower payments. Selecting a 4.0% interest rate instead of a 4.5% rate on a $200,000, 30-year fixed mortgage means you'll pay off an additional $1,400 in principal in the first 5 years. And, your payments will be nearly $60 a month less. That's more than $3,500 over just the first 5 years.
You can put that savings to use by:
- Paying off your mortgage or other debts faster
- Saving for emergency home repairs (like when your washing machine is on the fritz)
- Making improvements to your home
- Putting a bit more aside for your future
- Or maybe even splurging on a family vacation
