Complimentary First Time On-line Home Buyers Seminar!/ Google Chat 3-26-2015 7:00pm

downloadHave you been considering buying a home?  This seminar is for you!  So many people think that buying a home is just not something that they can do right now.  Here are some of the thoughts I hear everyday:

*I don’t have enough money to put down

*I don’t have good enough credit

*I want to wait for interest rates to come down

                                                  *   I can’t afford the payments

                                                   *  I can’t find my dream home

                                                     * etc., ect., etc.

Are you uncomfortable about going to a Realtor, or a lender because you don’t want to commit to something your not sure of?

This live seminar will cover all the information you need to make an informed decision on whether the time is right for you, or not to buy a home.

It’s short, live, and you can ask questions.

Please join us for this no obligation first time event- you will be glad you did!

Surveys Show That Mortgage Rates Are Moving Higher

Survey Shows Mortgage Rates Moving Higher on Strong Jobs Report
Mortgage rates are moving higher amid a strong jobs report, bringing rates back to where they were at the start of 2015, according to the recently released results of Freddie Mac’s Primary Mortgage Market Survey. Results showed that the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage has averaged below 4 percent since the week ending November 13, 2014.

“The average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rose to 3.86 percent for this week following a strong labor market report, essentially bring rates back to where they were at the start of the year,” says Len Kiefer, deputy chief economist, Freddie Mac. “The U.S. economy created 295,000 jobs in February while the unemployment rate dipped to 5.5 percent from 5.7 percent in January, both outperforming market expectations.”

The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 3.86 percent with an average 0.6 point for the week ending March 12, 2015, up from the last week when it averaged 3.75 percent. A year ago at this time, the 30-year FRM averaged 4.37 percent.

The 15-year FRM averaged 3.10 percent with an average 0.6 point, up from the previous week when it averaged 3.03 percent. A year ago at this time, the 15-year FRM averaged 3.38 percent.

Results show the 5-year Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) averaged 3.01 percent with an average 0.5 point, up from the last week when it averaged 2.96 percent. A year ago, the 5-year ARM averaged 3.09 percent.

The 1-year Treasury-indexed ARM averaged 2.46 percent this week with an average 0.4 point, up from last week when it averaged 2.44 percent. At this time last year, the 1-year ARM averaged 2.48 percent.
