Tips for protecting your family’s home and future

1Give yourself time to rebuild your emergency fund.
If your down payment came from savings, you may need additional protection while building it back up.
2Mortgage payments are just the beginning.
Be sure to factor in other expenses such as property taxes, utilities, and maintenance fees.
3Lenders like cash value.
Should you ever need to refinance your home, banks consider the cash value of life insurance an asset.
4Traditional mortgage insurance is NOT portable.
If there’s a chance you will move, make sure you can take your mortgage protection with you. Most of the time, you can’t. Which is why a term policy is something to consider when deciding how to protect your home.
5Traditional mortgage insurance pay directly to the lender.
In the event that you pass away, it is smarter to leave the benefits directly to your loved ones, so they can decide how the money is used. Traditional mortgage insurance will bypass your family, and pay directly to the lender. This is certainly something to consider.
