What a week for interest rates!

 

Rates have taken a wild ride lower over the last several months. This week however, rates have broken through new lows.The 10 year treasury bond hit historical lows on Friday, February 28 at 1.13%. This historical rate drop gives a generational opportunity for many homeowners to lower their monthly payments.

 

What opportunity is there for consumers? Let’s take a look. Even though there is savings for many consumers, those that have excellent credit will save the most. Let’s take a look at the numbers on a fixed rate $350,000 mortgage at 75% of the appraised value.

 

Standard closing costs of roughly 2% should be considered by many lenders. If you have concerns, there is a list of lenders at the bottom of this blog to contact.

 

For a 30 year fixed rate mortgage, here are the payments for those with different credit scores.
