How to Payoff Student Debts
Do you know you can carry your mortgage while still paying off your student debt?
All you need is some smart debt management strategies to manage both loans.

Student Debt
Youth is no doubt the most exciting time in life. This is the time you complete your
education, get your first job and get ready to explore a whole world of
opportunities. But this is also when you are faced with the bitter reality of student
debt settlement. Many people plan to pay off student debt before applying for their
first home loan. But according to debt management analysts, you can still manage
a mortgage while carrying student debt. In fact, home loans can facilitate the
settling of your student debt completely.

Review Financial Situation
Education has become much more valued these days. Hence taking out a student
loan is pretty normal. If you want to take out a mortgage while still carrying your
student debt, then debt management analysts recommend a complete review of
your financial situation. If you are single and have no financial dependants, then
you can likely afford a mortgage loan while holding the student debt. But if your
finances make it to meet the student debt payment, then securing a mortgage
won’t be the right move for you.

Check out Interest Rates
Debt management strategists suggest taking a closer look at interest rates and
payment structures. They will give you a clear idea of how much and for how long
you need to pay your student loans. If the debt amount as well as the interest rate
is low, you can apply for a mortgage even while continuing with your monthly debt

Mortgage - Is The Risk Worth It?
Considering the state of the property market, investment in a mortgage is definitely
profitable. If the interest on your student debt is low, your property will appreciated
to a high price faster than your savings can. For instance, if your student debt will
take 10 years to pay off and you are buying a property now, there is a very good
chance that the home equity will mature in the next five years. What’s more, you
can even settle your student debt completely from this consolidated equity. That’s
why debt management planners suggest it’s definitely worth the risk to opt for a
mortgage while you are still in your debt pay off period.
