Straight talk about closing costs and interest rates

On the heels of a very active spring market, we aren’t seeing much of  a slow down as we move into July. For many buyers looking in the moderate price range for Boise/Meridian, it’s the interest rates that are making some take the leap into homeownership. For others, it’s a life event, a relocation, an attempt to avoid high rental rates, or simply a desire to downsize. Regardless, the sub 4% interest rate is making people take note. 
 
So, what does it take to buy a home in The Greens at Movado? Jason Ames with Homebridge created the worksheet links below, using a $294,900 purchase price scenario with 3% down, 30 year conventional fixed rate. Basically, if you have good credit, some money saved up and can afford a $1,685 monthly payment, owning a home could be in your near future.
 
 
 
There are many loan programs available other than the one described above; and visiting with a loan officer early in the process is key.  Whether you’re looking to buy within 30 days or within the next year, a loan officer can make suggestions to make the path to homeownership an easy one.
