10. You pay too much attention to interest rates


The interest rate isn’t the only payment you need to cover. Lots of people bump into awkward situations when they take “rewarding” loans with low interest rates only to find out that they have to repay much more than in other cases.

You also need to pay close attention to insurance cost, commissions and ongoing payments, different extra payments that are included in the contract and fees for money transfer to the bank’s account. These factors are sometimes even more important than the interest rates.

Do you have spare 150 000 $ in your pocket? This is the amount of money one can easily overpay after taking the wrong kind of loan. Mortgage has both its good and bad sides. It allows us to acquire and live in our own house and stop paying rent every month.
