Mortgage Rates Tumble

Over the last couple of weeks 30-year fixed mortgage rates fell substantially… I’ve seen some recent quotes for 5.5%!

Taking 1/2% off the interest rate (which is what has happened in the last few weeks) on a $300,000 loan saves you $1500 per year in interest charges, which would be a savings of $125 per month or is like taking nearly $21,000 off the purchase price of the house, as compared to the higher interest rate.

With record high inventory and affordability at 3 year highs, this is a great time to be a buyer!

Here are a couple loan officers that I recommend if you are looking for information on what you can afford, how mortgages work, or want to get a pre-approval.  Please feel free to contact them or myself if there’s anything we can do for you!
