Are mortgages and
home loans are too easy to get? An odd sounding question given the hoops
that banks and financial institutions will generally make you jump
through in order to get any kind of home loan, but in some circles
that’s the question that is being asked. Not very long ago there was a
bunch of noise in the news about sharp increases in the number of
foreclosures, most of them horror stories in which people’s dream of
owning a home get flushed.

So perhaps it’s a good idea to wonder if banks are doing enough to make
sure that mortgage applicants can make their repayments? Perhaps it
would also be a good idea for people to use tools like this mortgage
calculator and this secured
loans calculator to get an idea of what a given loan can end up
costing you over the years and decide if they’re reaching too far for
their current means.
