The Internet is a key tool in finding a mortgage. Getting pre-approved for a mortgage is a good first step to take in your home search. You'll have a better idea of how much house you can afford.

The Internet allows you to expand your search beyond the mortgage lenders in your area and compare multiple rates and types of loans.You can also shop for a mortgage at any time of the day or night. The Internet never closes, so shop at your leisure.

A simple search of the Internet will give you the most recent interest rates for different types of mortgages. These may differ depending on your credit history and income.

It's a good idea to check your own credit report before shopping for a loan. The country's three credit reporting agencies allow you to access your credit report for free once a year.
