Amortization

This is the amount of time over which the entire debt will be repaid. Most mortgages are amortized over 15-, 20- or 25-year periods. The longer the amortization, the lower your scheduled mortgage

payments, but the more interest you pay in the long run.

Monthly payment per $1,000 borrowed*

*Amortized over 25 years based on 10% down payment.

Example: Oliver and Janet can afford $800 per month for a mortgage payment. If the pre- vailing mortgage interest rate is 6%, they will qualify for a mortgage of $125,000 amortized over 25 years. If the prevailing mortgage rate is 13%, they will qualify for a mortgage of $72,600. The lower the interest rate, the higher the mortgage for which they qualify.
