Financing a Home Tip #1: Shop Around for the Best Financing Rates

It’s important to remember that you have the freedom to shop around when looking for the best financing options. Sometimes a different lending institution than the one you use may have the best rates. 

As a starting point, depending on the type of mortgage you get, average financing rates range upwards of 5.760%. These rates are expected to continue to increase throughout 2022. 

Even getting a partial percent less on a financing rate can save you tens of thousands of dollars. Or even shave years off of your mortgage repayment.
