Rates remain TERRIFIC!

We had relative stability this week in terms of interest rates, even though bonds were under pressure because of a better than expected Retail Sales Report for November, marking the third monthly increase over the past four months.

Consumer Sentiment was also reported quite a bit better than expectations.

Below are some rates for the week-end. These rates are typical for the borrower will excellent credit and a sizable down payment, exclusive of FHA for the down payment. Take a look at FHA 5/1 ARM rates below, as those rates are at 3.75% for all loans up to $729,750-this is amazing.!This can be a very attractive alternative for FHA buyers.
