Ep 8: True or False? Renting Costs Less Than Owning a Home

Spring is just around the corner and many people are starting to get pre-approved for the busy season. There is a lot of questions that come up during the home buying process. So, on today’s episode, we are going to play a fun round of true or false with some mortgage and refinancing topics.

“It’s better to look at the APR and not just the interest rate when evaluating a loan.” Bill says the APR is important but you want to make sure it’s not distorted, always get a loan estimate and see where every dollar is going. Should you always get your home mortgage through the bank? While they have some good offers, they aren’t always the best option out there. Join us as we explore these topics and more on today’s show.
