Mortgage Basics: The Amortization Schedule
Posted by MortgageLender at May 16th, 2014
The amortization schedule for a residential mortgage is a table that provides a breakdown of the schedule of payments from the loan’s first required payment to the loan’s final payment. It details the amount of principal and the amount of interest paid each month.

This was our first home buying experience and Jaxzann took the time to explain everything that was in our loan documents. After hundreds of phone calls, emails, and a few unforeseen bumps in the road we were able to close in less than 4 weeks. Jaxzann was also present at our closing in case we had any additional questions about our loan.
We could not have been happier with the customer service, prompt responses, and education that we received from Jaxzann and her team. We would highly recommend Jaxzann and The Mortgage Network to anyone looking to purchase a loan.

We highly recommend Jazxann and look forward to working with her for our next purchase!
