October 17, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Twin Cities, Minnesota-Venture Development-Minnesota mortgage broker-has just launched a consumer friendly website offering visitors the chance to embed a fun and useful tool into their website or blog. This tool was developed in response to the common mortgage question "What is my mortgage payment?" Using this mortgage payment calculator, you can now find out. The site URL is http://www.MortgageWidgets.org. This little tool is called a "widget". The term "Widget" is defined by Wikepedia as "A widget is anything that can be embedded within a page of HTML, i.e. a web page. A widget adds some content to that web page that is not static." Our definition is a little simpler as we define widgets as "just plain fun." If you want to liven up a static webpage, consider adding a website widget. The best part about these calculators is that they are free! Simply copy the code and paste into your html editor. The script will take over and in seconds you will have your mortgage calculator on your webpage.

Venture Development, Minnesota mortgage broker, has created versions of a calculator widget which can be found at http://www.MortgageWidgets.org. What make their widget unique in the marketplace is that these widgets not only calculate a payment and amortization schedule, they also provide a news feed reader with real time mortgage or real estate news. This means the widgets are always adding value to the web user as they view a web page, even if they are not being used for a loan payment calculation.

There is yet another special feature. If a calculator user would like to learn more about various mortgage programs, begin an online loan application or get an interest rate quote for their home loan, they only need to click on the link embedded in the widget. The embedded link will redirect them back to the Minnesota mortgage company's main website. If a webmaster or publisher prefers a website widget with breaking real estate news, they can select that specific script code for our real estate widget. The real estate web widget has a redirect link where widget users looking for information about Minnesota real estate can go to begin their online home search and learn more about homes in the Twin Cities real estate marketplace.

As a webmaster or publisher you have three choices on what you'd like to display. There is a mortgage payment calculator with a real estate news feed, a mortgage payment calculator with a mortgage news feed, or a series of different size banners offering the calculator that redirect back to the main widget site. The banners will
take up less space and redirect back to the main widget site where someone can then calculate a home loan payment. The banners are fun to view in and of themselves. Use a banner if you want to save space on your website or blog and still want to offer your visitors the chance to find out what a loan payment would be.
