Buyers Market picking up due to low interest rates- Tampa, Fl

Beautiful Seminole Heights Bungalow

Lowest Rates in 25 Months

We couldn’t have asked for a better Thanksgiving treat than the one we got on Monday: the lowest 30-year fixed-rate in over two years. That’s right. For those of you who have been patiently waiting, here’s your chance to save anywhere from $5,000 to $7,500 or even more on the mortgage financing you’ve been looking for. Do not miss this great opportunity to cash in on the lowest rates since October 2005.
Here’s why you should act now:
Monday saw the lowest 30-year fixed interest rate in over two years. However, each time this interest rate reached previous low points, both last year and earlier this year, it began increasing and didn’t stop, climbing over 0.50% in the months that followed!

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac tightened guidelines, announcing new Loan-Level Price Adjustments. In the first quarter of 2008, most borrowers who have good credit, but have FICO scores below 680, will now be forced either to pay more points at closing or incur a higher interest rate.

The amount that a borrower could be forced to pay, even if they’ve never been late on a payment, could be as much as 2.00% in points or an interest rate that’s 1.00% higher than the going rate.

On a $250,000 home loan, a borrower could have to pay up to $5,000 in order to receive normal market rates! Borrowers choosing the higher interest rate, under the worse case scenario, would stand to lose over $7,500 in just the first three years of the loan.

Choosing to wait could cost you money both in the form of higher market rates and points. This could well be the greatest holiday present you could treat yourself to this year, but only if you act fast!
