Say YES To Lower Gulfport Home Mortgage Payments
If you are like the many Gulfport home owners who took advantage of the teaser rates offered by adjustable rate mortgages a few years ago, your rate may soon be rising as the fixed period on your loan comes to an end. As your mortgage begins to adjust, your payments will likely rise. If keeping your payments low is important to your family, take action before your fixed rate period ends.
There are ways to maintain your low mortgage rate and keep your monthly payments from fluctuating. Options include refinancing your adjustable rate mortgage into a fixed rate loan or getting a new loan with a longer term.
Whether the best option for you is to refinance your adjustable rate mortgage into a fixed rate mortgage, or another adjustable rate loan, will depend on how many more years you plan to live in your Gulfport home. If you are going to live in your primary residence for several more years, a fixed rate mortgage will give you stable, predictable payments. With a fixed rate mortgage, you can plan your monthly budget around your house payment.
On the other hand, if you plan to sell your home in the next few years, another adjustable rate mortgage may be better for you. Because adjustable rate mortgages have lower rates during the fixed period of the loan, you can enjoy low payments while you live in your home and save money to use for your next home purchase. Proper planning is essential to making an adjustable rate mortgage work for you. If you are able to sell your home or refinance your mortgage before your loan adjusts to a higher rate, you can save a significant amount of money with an adjustable rate mortgage.
Every homeowner has a unique situation, so it is important to speak with a loan officer to learn about all of your options before you make a decision regarding your mortgage. For more information on mortgage options, contact us today.

“As a first time home buyer, I didn’t really know of what to expect. After meeting with Amanda and talking with her the first time, I felt comfortable enough to ask lots of questions and she was very patient with me. As we closed on our house today, I cannot be any happier that Amanda’s team is the one that helped me along the way. She has gone above and beyond my expectations. Thank you to your team for a great job!”
“Amanda’s team really went above and beyond for me while trying to sell my house. I live out of state and Amanda was valuable in several aspects, even going as far as checking on the plumbing during the ice storm that struck south Mississippi this past winter. I’m very pleased with the service that was provided and I highly recommend them.”
Amanda and Associates helped me every step of the way through the difficult situation of selling my home. We had a difficult time in dealing with the lender and Amanda’s team made it much easier.
They do very well in getting the information needed for you so you can decide on the property being reviewed. Very professional and quick to respond. They keep you informed on all steps during the process of the purchase.
First off, let me say the pleasure was all ours. We appreciate the time McKinsey & her team took with us. She stayed on top of the situation and made things happen. It was our first time to use a Realtor and it was a pleasure with us. She answered questions immediately or found the answer for us in timely manner. We never felt pressured or uncomfortable. It was great doing business with her and the team and look forward to future business.

I have worked with Amanda and her team on several transactions, both as a buyer and a seller. They are very proactive, accessible, and responsive. The team knows the market very well, and lays out a well thought out and deliberate strategy to close a deal in a timely manner.
