If you are looking to purchase a home or refinance using your Texas VA Loan benefits, the rate you can obtain is a huge factor in determining which lender you choose as well as what your payment will be.   The market can be volatile, and Gainesville TX VA Mortgage Loans many times change daily, and fluctuate sometimes during the course of single a day.   So why is this, and what determines what interest rates are?   All home loan products are secured by mortgage bonds, or securities  that are traded daily on wall street like stocks. These bonds are what backs the mortgages, including Texas VA Loan products. Mortgage bonds are also called mortgage backed securities.   Mortgage backed securities are just like the stock market in that they can go up or down during the course of a day, ther...

Save money during the holidays and buy that dream house in the New Year   The holidays can put a dent in your savings especially if you're planning to buy a Texoma home. But there are several ways to cut costs so your finances aren't in the red by New Year's Day. Consider the following money saving tips:   In lieu of buying presents for every family member, suggest a gift exchange and draw names out of a hat. Agree on a spending limit for gifts for friends and family and stick to it. Make your holiday meals a potluck and assign each guest an item to bring. To prevent the urge to overspend when shopping, use cash and leave your credit cards at home. Consider buying a joint gift rather than individual gifts for a family such as a zoo membership or movie tickets. Instead of holiday wrap, b...
