When Is The Best Time To Buy In 2017?

When Is The Best Time To Buy In 2017?

Is 2017 going to be the year you purchase a home? If so, you will want to keep reading. We teamed up with our awesome in-house Mortgage Lender, Diane Malley of Mortgage Master to discuss Interest Rates in 2017. Check out the video below to hear what she has to say, or scroll down for a recap!

On Tuesday it was announced that the Mortgage Insurance Premium for an FHA loan decreased!  Previously the annual MIP (Mortgage Insurance Premium) on FHA loans was 0.85%, but with the new decrease it is now 0.6%! This makes the FHA loan much more attractive!

Let’s put that into perspective: On a $300,000 loan you would save you $72 / month

It is also good to point out that FHA Loans are not just for first time home owners, they’re great for any home owner that will be using the home with the FHA loan as their primary residence.

What should you expect on Interest Rates throughout 2017? An increase.

Currently Interest Rates are 4.125% (FHA Rates 3.75%)
Interest Rates are projected to increase to 4.6% by the end of 2017

This means it is better to purchase a home in early 2017, rather than wait. 

Interest rates are projected to increase in 2017, so lock-in on a rate now to avoid paying more!
