Save $1,000’s by Refinancing Your Mortgage to a Shorter Term. Time to Refinance???  A case study of Mortgage Term 30 Year vs 20 Year. Refinancing with a 20 year mortgage does make sense.  When refinancing you want to take a look at monthly payments, percentage rates, term of loan and then at total cost of loan and total interest payments of loan.  If you take a look at the example down below you can see that with simply lowing your interest rate by 1% you can save thousands of dollars. If you lower the length of time (term of your loan) of the loan you can also save thousands of dollars over the course of the loan.  Check with your local Mortgage Broker, Mortgage Banker and Lending Institutions because usually a 20 year mortgage tends to be a 1/8th of a point lower than a 30 year mortga...

Tenant/Landlord Rent to Income Ratio. Many landlords depend on many factors when considering tenants such as: Credit History and Score. Background checks. Rent to Income Ratio. Debt to Income Ratio. When it comes to the Rent to Income Ratio many landlords will use the 30% rule of allowing thirty percent of your gross income to go towards rent. So if you are making $40,000 a year then 30% of that will be your total rent which is $12,000 divided by 12 months is equal to $1,000. A much easier way to do the math is multiply the monthly rent by 40 and that will give you the annual income required by the landlord.  $1,000 monthly rent times by 40 = $40,000. Depending on rental supply & demand landlords will change this ratio to fit their needs, sometimes lowering it or even sometime requiring...
