Search By Monthly Loan Payment

Another upgraded feature that is available is the ability to search by monthly loan payment.

Below is an example of 3 loan programs that would show a variety of monthly payments.

You can choose what loan program and if you prefer to search by that loan program or by price.

Annual property taxes can vary greatly depending on the county you are looking in.

Some neighborhoods on county lines may have monthly property tax differences of $5, $10. or even $100. a month.

With some areas such as Portland/Vancouver having Washington, Clackamas, Multnomah, Clark and a little south Yamhill County, it can be enlightning to do your search by monthly payment and compare how much more of a similar style home you can buy in one county over another.

Search for homes by loan program and monthly payment.

Please note that property taxes can and do change upon purchase so the monthly payments shown are with that property's most recent years tax amount.

 To be able to search by monthly mortgage payment, just reply to an email, or pick a property, click on "Request Showing" then in the "Anything I should know" text box mention you want to be prequalified to receive updates by monthly loan payment.

If you don't have a lender, then this is an opportunity to work with a great one.

If you do have a lender, then isn't a second opinion a wise option?  At best it will save you money.  The only down side would be a little time to confirm what you already know about your ability to qualify for a new loan.

Thanks for taking the time to learn about this NEW and EXCITING home search tool.
