Another year has passed which means you’ve maintained another year of home-ownership! Congratulations. Before you pop the champagne though, it is essential to evaluate the past year, where your mortgage is currently at, and your plans for the future. Having a yearly mortgage checkup, like an annual physical or dental exam, is just as important to ensure your financial health is well and on track.
If you’ve undergone any of the below changes over the past year, you may need to take time to sit down with your mortgage professional to discuss your financial goals and opportunities.
- Personal change (marriage, divorce, etc.)
- New job/position
- In need of extra finances (home improvement projects, college expenses, etc.)
- Retirement planning
- New home/vacation home/ investment property
- Looking to eliminate private mortgage insurance (PMI)
- Looking to pay off your home loan faster
The first step…
