Mortgage Information 

A mortgage is a large loan secured by real estate. If You are wondering How to Choose the Right Mortgage, here are some basics that may help you :

Flexibility - With increased competition among lenders, flexibility has become an even more important consideration than before. Some things to look for include your payment terms and conversion options. For example, can you pay weekly, biweekly, or monthly?
Paying weekly, if you can, can shave off interest over time, but if you only get your pay-cheque once a month, you may prefer a monthly payment. The ability to make extra payments (and when) is also a consideration. Some mortgages won’t allow you to do this, so if you think you might have some extra cash once in a while and might want to make some additional payments, make sure you look carefully for this option. Another area of flexibility includes the ability to convert your mortgage to a longer term.
Cost - This is the single biggest issue surrounding a mortgage. Obviously, you want to keep your costs as low as possible, but remember, this does not mean keep your monthly payment as low as possible! We are talking about overall cost here.
When considering cost, then, first of all make sure you are clear about interest rates and how they are calculated. Just like with credit cards, a low introductory rate may seem too good to be true – and it probably is. Most of the time these are simply gimmicks to lure you in. Look instead at your effective interest rate over the entire term of the mortgage, and know how compounding is done! Keep in mind that most mortgages still do have their interest calculated semi-annually, but some do compound interest monthly. Always remember that the more often a mortgage rate is compounded, the higher your effective rate will be. The savings and flexibility are generally worth it in the end. Remember, cost is most important, but use the competitive market to your advantage to get what’s right for you!

When it comes to choosing mortgage lenders , you should always shop around for the best rates and terms that personally suit you. There is no obligation to use the mortgage lender who pre-qualified you. Most buyers want the best interest rates they can get, so it's natural to place this at the top of your shopping list. Although you should keep in mind that some mortgage lenders offer abnormally low rates and don't deliver as promised.
Commercial banks are traditional mortgage lenders holding approximately a quarter of all home mortgages. Commercial banks are forced by the government to provide mortgages in their community so they can open more branches. Most are conventional loans and conform to standards set by secondary-market agencies. After a bank closes a mortgage loan they then sell the mortgage to a secondary-mortgage company, this frees up money for the bank to provide more loans.

Now with the rise of the Internet age banks and other financial institutions no longer get you by default because you live locally. You now have the ability to search for a mortgage lender that has plans that personally suit you.
