With interest rates at historic lows, there has been a groundswell of people refinancing their current mortgages or borrowing for the first time. 106 Mortgage Secrets All Borrowers Must Know—But Lenders Won’t Tell, by Gary W. Eldred, offers advice for everyone.
In the first chapter, “Affordability Depends on You—Not the Lender” Eldred addresses the common belief that a potential homebuyer should get “prequalified” or “preapproved” for a mortgage. Eldred recommends that the reader, “realize that this advice did not develop to chiefly promote your needs; it secured its place in mortgage lore to primarily advance the interest of real estate agents and mortgage lenders.” He rounds out his guide with the final chapter, “Manage Your Home and Home Financing for Maximum Return.”
