Where do I input the mortgage information? 

Answer: To model a client's current mortgage, navigate to the Profile > Net Worth > Add Account > Loan card.

When choosing to sell the previous primary home using the Primary Home Relocation Goal, any mortgage balance tied to the previous home will be automatically paid off. Within the Primary Home Relocation goal you will also see an option to enter new mortgage terms for the future new home purchase if the down payment is less than 100%.
