Does anyone know about the Pros and Cons Of a 40, 45 or 50 year Loan?

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone know about the Pros and Cons Of a 40, 45 or 50 year Loan - You may have heard that there are now 40, 45, and even 50 year mortgages. This type of mortgage can lower my payments so I will be able to afford my current house and rent it out until the better time comes to sell it. I will then rent a house where I want to move to and buy when my current house sells. I was told that no one keeps even a 30 year mortgage in todays times. It sounds like a solution for the purpose of lowering my mortgage payments so I can break even with the rental fee I would charge. I don't want to go into short sale and your answers may help other home owners who are facing the same problem..
I know not to accept an early payoff penalty of any percentage, balloons, or interest only mortgage.

GREAT QUESTION: I am a realtor, investor, mortgage loan officer. I would speak with CPA for short / long term plans, credit scores are primary concerns if value is less than pay off however provides a solution where you can lease a home till market value increases in value however receive a tax write -- off, lower payments sounds as though from your statements fits into your overall plan.

NOTE: search for family lease purchase option, therefore you have a long term tenant sale when you can.
