CNBC and Bankrate.com just reported that home loan rates are at their all time lows. Yes, all time lows! This is great news for anyone who has yet to refinance to take advantage of the lowest rates ever recorded, or to purchase that new home or investment property more affordably than ever before.
Both 30 Year and 15 Year Fixed Rates clipped down to their lowest levels. All this is incredible as just months ago, many experts had anticipated that rates would be well above 5% this summer and on their way to 6% by year end.
Last month, NBC reported that nearly 50% of all people with a 30 Year Fixed rate had rates higher than 5.75% – do you know where your interest rate is at currently? It’s worth a look, and a call to me to help check it out!
Plus in most parts of the country, home values as reported by both the National Association of Realtors and the S&P Case-Shiller Indices are higher than last year. If you were unable to refinance last year, the combination of your current home value and historic interest rates may provide you a greater opportunity to save money than ever before.
Finally, even if your home has lost value from when your loan was originated, you may still be able to refinance. There are some special programs available that might allow you to refinance without private mortgage insurance, even if your loan will now exceed 80% of the present value.
Don’t miss this chance to save money. Even if you have already taken advantage of the historic rates that have been offered, don’t miss this chance to help your family and friends. Call me today and we can discuss what options exist for you.
Time waits for no one and when rates rise, they will rise quickly. Call me at 408.615.0655, to take advantage of these special rates or complete our rate quote form on the sidebar.
