Mortgage Tax Savings
Owning a home in Connecticut can lead to tax bill savings. The IRS allows you to deduct the interest and points paid on mortgage debt, plus property taxes. Mortgageloan.com's Tax Savings Calculator can estimate the savings related to the interest and points you'll pay. You'll get the highest deductions in the first years of homeownership. Take a look at an amortization table to see why-for any type of mortgage loan, much of the interest is paid at the beginning. Points paid on a purchase mortgage can be deducted upfront, but points paid on a refinance are handled differently. These have to be deducted over the loan's lifetime.
Fixed-rate mortgages (FRMs) in Connecticut are suitable for borrowers in need of a conservative mortgage structure. FRMs are characterized by an amortization schedule, payment amount, and interest rate that remain the same throughout the loan's life. This means no payment increases and no balloon payments that might require a refinance. Most borrowers select the 30-year FRMs, but 10-year, 15-year, 20-year, and even 40- and 50-year mortgages are available. The shorter loan terms generally have lower interest rates.
To be successful in your search for the lowest rate mortgage, you must apply to several qualified lenders. It may seem tedious, but you have the best chance of saving money when you have several offers to compare. Refer to our Connecticut broker directory for lender contact information.
Here are two more tips to help you:
- You might receive quotes for FRMs and adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs). Review your offers by loan type first. Once you understand the implications of each one, a mortgage calculator can help you compare your best FRM offer to your best ARM quote.
- Look for the lowest payment, but be cautious about interest-only mortgages and option ARMs. If, after funding, you rely too much on the lowest payment option, you'll delay repayment of the debt. This can lead to higher interest costs and a slower build-up of home equity.
Whether you prefer the country cottage in the town of Hampton or a custom estate in Bridgeport, Connecticut lenders are ready to listen to your needs and help you find the best rate mortgage available.
