IT'S TIME*** Interest Rates are on the Rise

I intended to write a post last week about the rumor that interest rates were going to starti ncreasing, but I just got busy and didn't get it done. We had our office meeting this past Monday morning and our in house Lender with ERA announced that yes indeed we are going to start seeing a rise in interest rates.
I just received a report with actual statistics of what this past week has seen with actual interest rates so you can read for your self, that Yes, we have seen the bottom and we are starting the move to higher rates. MORTGAGE RATES RISE SIGNIFICANTLY Even thou the rates are starting to increase, it is not too late to still get a good rate. Compared to what they were 2 years ago, these rates are phenominal and will still save you $$$$$$$$$$ in your monthly payment.

Yes Virginia, It is the right time to buy a Home

Unless you are living under a rock, you all know that interest rates are at an all time low, and it truely is a buyers market right now, so why haven't you jumped off that fence and committed to finding a home to buy? From the information I've gathered from talking to clients and hopefully future clients, they are still waiting for that perfect right time!!!! Some are holding out for the house they have had their eye on, and waiting for the price to go down! For those of you in this category, it truely is time to jump off of that fence and dive in, because every updated information that we are getting says that the bottom has hit and I read yesterday that 10 states have already posted that their last months home sales prices actually increased over asking price. With 10 states already showing that trend, it won't take long and we will see more states added to this upward trend. Then when the interest rates starts rising also, you will be kicking yourself that you didn't get in. Just to show you some numbers I'm going to sell a $100,000 house at different rates so you can see.

$100,000 house on 30 yr loan @ 4% interest= $477.42 month (interest & principal only)

@ 5% interest= $536.82 month +$59 mo = $712 yr (more)

@ 6% interest= $599.55 month +122 mo = $1464 yr (more)

So you see the difference in getting the lower interest rate!!!!! These interest rates are not going to last forever, they have already speculated that these will be rising.

Now I know that there are many of you that have credit score issues so you can't buy a house right now, but did you know that if you contact a Realtor, we can get you lined up with a mortgage lender that will work with you to get your score raised? It can be done if you are serious about buying.

Give me a call, I have alot of contacts that are willing to work with my clients.

For the next group of future buyers that are renting at the present, have you ever had some one sit down with you and the show you the feasibility of you buying a house instead of renting? Yes this can be done also. I also have a rent vs buy calculator program that spells it out for you. Just plug in the numbers they ask for and see where you end up, I believe that you will be surprised.
