15 year rate hits record low

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Professionals

What an amazing time to buy a house.  15 year rate is nationaly averaged at 4.32% according to a recent Realtor.com article.  Want to own a home outright in 15 years?  Don't think you can?  Consider this scenario:

Average Goodyear, AZ home: $142,000, 10% down, $127,800 loan amount: P&I $965.95,

Include insurance and taxes for a payment less than $1,200!  Done in 15 years.

Compare that to a 30 year mortage : P&I of $676.33 at 4.875%.  It is a significant difference but possibly a huge savings in the long run.

Is a 15 year rate the right choice for you?

Wow, considering the amortization factor, that's actually a fair deal.
