Spring is right around the corner, so flowers are starting to bloom, and many potential home buyers are getting ready to step into the market. If you’re thinking of buying this season, here’s how mortgage interest rates are working in your favor.
To put this in perspective, the following chart shows how average mortgage rates by decades have impacted the approximate monthly payment of a $200,000 home over time:
The VA home loan program has serviced over 24 million home loans for veterans and active service members since its creation in 1944, part of the original Servicemen's Readjustment's Act, better known as the GI Bill of Rights.
A VA mortgage loan is a great option for a first time home buyers or repeat buyers that may have a lower income and/or a limited amount of money to put down.
Some of the benefits that can get you into the home of your dreams include:
· No down payment
· Higher debt-to-income (DTI) ratios are allowed
· FICO scores as low at 600
· No private mortgage insurance (PMI) required
· Limited closing costs (sellers can pay up to 4% in buyer’s concessions)
· Lower average interest rates than other loan types. VA loans continue to have the lowest average interest rates of all loan types.
The VA loan is one of the reason 79% of veterans own their own homes, compared with just 63% for the non-veteran population, according to Trulia.com
If you are interested in starting your home buying process, please give me a call. As a retired military member and full-time real estate I can help!
Because I'm a retired military member, I personally know what it's like to make a move across country and across the world. The planning, the packing, the kids, the schools, the looking for your next home, maybe selling the home you have now. It all can make for a hectic and stressful couple of months. So, when you are granted 10 days of house hunting leave, you need a REALTOR® that is as ready to hit the ground running just as fast as you are.
As a Florida Military Specialist and Military Relocation Professional I am one of the very few to achieve these coveted designations which gives me a clear advantage when working with military individuals and their families.
Call me today and let's talk about what's important to you as you prepare to PCS. It doesn't have to be hectic and stressful. My goal is to ALWAYS make your real estate experience exceptional...whether you are MOVING IN or MOVING ON.
Why wait until next year?
We’ve recently seen home loan interest rates as low as 5%, but rates are RISING and the economy is heating up.
A 250,000 dollar home loan at a 5% rate would approximately be a $1,603 monthly mortgage payment.
