Interest Rates February 2018

With the economy doing better we have notices that the interest rates are slowly on the rise. As of January 31 2018 here are the rates you can expect when you buy a home. These interest rates can change daily.

30 Year Fixed: 4.375-4.5%
FHA/VA 4.0 - 4.25%
15 Year Fixed 3.625 - 3.75%
5 Year Arms 3.0 - 3.5% Depending on the lending

     With that being said now is a good time to buy before the interest rates go any higher. I have a chart to help explain what happens when the interest rates go up.

            If you are interested in learning more or want to know what programs are out there that can help just give me a call or shoot me an email. I have lenders on my team that can help answer any questions you may have.

203 K Loan

Recently I have had people ask me "What if I find a home, but it needs repairs?". There is a loan program out there that allows you to add money to your loan for repairs or additions. For example, you found a home and you want to update the kitchen, or maybe you want to add an extra bedroom to the home. The house is selling for $200,000. This would be a good opportunity to get a 203K Loan. Your loan would be for $200,000 + the cost of the estimated repairs. Once your home goes under contract the next step would be to get a contractor out to the home ASAP and to give you an estimate of how much it would cost to do what you want to do. Let's say the cost will be $30,000. The next step is to have the appraiser look at the house and appraise the home as if the updates were complete. The total amount of the loan would be $230,000. 
                 If you would like more information please let me know. I have lenders that can still get ...
