How Financial Turmoil In Greece Lowers Mortgage Rates In Woodbridge

Real Estate Agent with Cell: 703-677-1120

This quick video shares with you how financial turmoil in Greece is driving down mortgage interest rates in Woodbridge, Virginia, and throught the United States.

Let me translate some of the mortgage-speak for you.  When bond prices go up, the yield, or interest rate goes down.  So when Barry was talking about bond prices going higher in the short term, and yields going down, that's good for borrowers because home loan rates will be trending lower.

Investors who had money in the Greek economy are pulling their money out of Greece and looking to safer places to invest, such as the US mortgage bond market, and the German bond market.  

The US and German markets are considered safe havens for investors because both nations have the economic strength to back their financial markets.

If you are thinking about buying a house, this may be the time to capture a low interest rate and maximize your buying power.  

For example, a $400,000 house purchased with an FHA 30 year fixed rate loan at 3.5% and 4.512% APR, and a down payment of $15,750, your monthly loan payment would be $1,950. (Not including escrows for real estate taxes or hazard insurance)

That's what low interest rates can do for you right now when you buy a home.

Writing as someone who has a degree in economics, I see strong economic indicators that say the US economy is headed for a similar melt down.

Marginal tax rates on individuals have been rising since Ronald Reagan convinced Congress to lower the top tax rate to 28%.  When marginal tax rates go down, revenues to the Treasury go UP. because the VELOCITY of money through the economy increases.

Marginal tax rates have been creeping higher under the Pelosi-Reid-Obama era, up to 39% for top income earners.  Higher marginal tax rates reduces the revenues to the Treasury because it slows the VELOCITY of money through the economy.  Velocity is the number of taxable events.

Presidents Harding, Kennedy, and Reagan each convinced Congress to lower marginal tax rates, and what followed was a thriving economy.

Reagan lowered marginal tax rates and the economy slowly began to turn around.  Deficit spending slowly came down year after year.  Bush 41 and Clinton kept the Reagan tax rates in place.  The result was two years of tax surplus during the Clinton administration.
