Is a mortgage in your future? Regardless of whether you are already a homeowner or just starting to think about buying a home, understanding how mortgages work and how your mortgage will help you achieve your financial goals (or jeopardize them) is imperative for any prospective or current homeowner. Below, we’ll explain everything you need to know about mortgages – from mortgage interest rates to insurance to tax deductions. Who are we? We’re ReadyForZero, a company dedicated to helping people pay off debt – on their own. We intend to update this resource center in the future, so be sure to bookmark it and come back to it.
