Interest Rate Update 02-27-10

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Maui Life Homes / Metro Life Homes RS-78439 / BRE #01708344

These rates are typical for the PURCHASE SFR borrower with 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 3.375% for all loans up to $729,750-this is amazing! This can be a very attractive alternative for FHA buyers. I do not recall ever seeing FHA ARM rates that low.

Conventional Loans:

30 Year Fixed Conforming---$417,000 and Below: 4.875% with 1 Point

30 Year Fixed High Balance Conforming---$417,001 to $729,750: 5.0% with 1 Point

30 Year Fixed Jumbo---$729,751 to $1,000,000: 5.5% with 1 Point

5/1 ARM Jumbo---4.75% with 1 Point-amazing for Jumbo product


FHA Loans:

FHA 30 Year Fixed---$417,000 and Below: 4.875% with 1 Point

FHA 5/1 ARM---$417,000 and Below: 3.375% with 1 Point

FHA 30 Year Fixed High Balance---$417,001 to $729,750: 5.0% with 1 Point

FHA 5/1 ARM High Balance---$417,001 to $729,750: 3.375% with 1 Point

I have not ever seen FHA ARM rates that low either. Could open a door for a lot of people who otherwise wouldn't be able to buy.
