Now Is The Time To Make A Sweet Deal.

Sandpoint Snow Globe

I have a snow globe on my desk.  When I shake it and the dust settles, it reveals a big question mark.  That's my answer when my customers ask me to predict the future mortgage rates this summer.  Based upon the graph below (supplied by our "good friend" Freddie Mac), it looks like now is the time to buy, however.  This was my answer a year ago and probably will be my answer moving well into 2012.  

Mortgage Rates 2012

Home prices are down and mortgage rates are at the lowest point in 30 years.  If you are in a position to buy, talk to your local lender and work out the best deal possible.  Do not over extend, buy for the right reasons and enjoy your investment!

Big thanks to Cathy Pizzini of Evergreen Home Loans for the great graph!

The most reliable way to predict the future is to examine the past. Love your snow globe idea!

Anyone questioning rates right now is not a serious buyer.

Good morning Kent. You make a really good point and you are very honest as well. Now is always the best time to buy if you are wanting to.

Hi George & Tim - Your welcome.  I thought the graph was pretty well done.

Hi Wayne - You wouldn't believe how often I use it.

Erv - Agreed.

Sheila - Thanks.  We're on the same page.

Hey G - The snow globe photo is coming.  It's down in my "downtown" office.  I wrote the post from my Schweitzer office.  ...too many offices!
