Mortgage widgets are tremendously resourceful tools that can attract visitors to your website and keep them coming back. They provide mortgage website content that is both informative and interactive. Widgets are typically free and remarkably simple to use. Merely copy the code and paste it to your website. Most are available in a variety of colors or can be customized to complement your website. Mortgage widgets are available in numerous types and can be found on websites such as Widgipedia and Google Gadgets. You’ll also find a number of mortgage widgets on real estate specific sites such as Trulia and Zillow.

Mortgage Calculator Widgets

Mortgage calculators allow your visitors to determine the monthly payment on a mortgage. This enables the potential home buyer to ensure their payments correspond to their financial situation. The loan amount, interest rate, term, taxes, insurance, and PMI are used to calculate a quick estimate of the payment. Mortgage calculators are available with a variety of features. Some include an interactive amortization schedule and graph. Others calculate specific information such as mortgage principle, amount paid in interest only, or tax benefits. You’ll even find referral mortgage calculator widgets that can be customized with your name and contact information. They can be distributed to real estate or mortgage partners to provide an additional source of leads.

Widgets to Compare Mortgage Rates

Widgets that compare mortgage rates allow visitors to compare a variety of loan products across lenders. Potential home buyers can compare rates on fixed and adjustable rate mortgages. The widget can help them decide if they would benefit from a 15 year or 30 year mortgage. Visitors can input the state where the property is located, property value, loan amount, and their credit profile to return information from applicable lenders. The widgets return fresh content, and users can also review market trends. Information can be queried for a specific state or across the nation.

Mortgage Stories Widgets

Mortgage stories widgets are an outstanding way to provide information for your visitors. They allow you to display mortgage tips, how to guides, current news articles and more. Mortgage stories widgets can be a valuable resource for prospective home owners. They can deliver up to date information on neighborhoods, property values and lenders. The widgets also permit you to select the number of stories you prefer to have displayed on your website. In addition, the fresh content helps your Google rankings.

AltosCharts are produced by Altos Research. These widgets offer market data feeds for more than 150 metrics for thousands of cities and zip codes across the nation. All market statistics are current since each is calculated weekly across a moving average. The charts are available in different sizes and can be animated.

They are a great tool for informing and engaging your website visitors.
