Here in the lovely “Wine Country” housing market you can’t be complaining about the interest rates! If you are retiring in 7 years and perhaps moving to another area then hook onto a refinance as your rate would be 3.125% Wow! Or opt for a 15 year loan and enjoy super low rates and rapid equity build up.
Once again we see the “Jumbo” money a 1/4 point or 25 basis points, under the conforming loan level which is now 4%. Either way, pretty spectacular interest rates. Now if you could just find a home to buy!
