Current Mortgage Rates
Even though we have seen some fluctuations in the mortgage rates amazingly per Mortgage News Daily the average 30-year fixed rate mortgage currently sits around 4.00%. It is exactly what it was 2 years ago.
Here is a quick buyer scenario for you. If you were to borrow $250,000 at 4% your monthly principal and interest payment would be $1193.54. This figure is just the principal and interest. It does not take into account any other homeowner costs. For additional mortgage calculations feel free to use my mortgage calculator or send me a message. I will be happy to give you a full payment analysis on a property.
Note: Mortgage rates quoted are just averages. Your final mortgage rate is determined by a number of factors. Please consult a mortgage professional and get a pre-approval to determine what your final rate may be.
Rent Versus Own
For most clients, the decision to rent a versus buying a home comes down to a number of factors. I am going to do a quick breakdown of the financial side of it for you. Based on our mortgage example above for a $250,000 purchase price, you could buy about a 2000 square foot home in FishHawk Ranch. That home would rent for around $1900 a month. The estimated monthly costs to own would look something like this:
Principle and Interest – $1194
Mortgage Insurance – $100
Home Owner Insurance – $100
Property Taxes on Primary Residence – $333
HOA – $10
CDD – $100
Total Monthly Costs to Own: $1837
From these quick numbers for a similar home, you could save $60 a month owning your home and building equity in your future rather than paying for an investors mortgage. These numbers do not take into account any tax savings or maintenance items incurred by owning your home.
FishHawk Ranch Real Estate Market Analysis And Outlook
We have just finished up a busy spring season and enter a summer season that tends to slow down just a tick, we are still in a very strong seller’s market. Prices are still slowly rising and demand is strong. I like to see that our inventory levels are getting a little higher. To get to a more balanced market I like to see between a 6 to 8 month supply of homes for sale.
Homes that are in good shape and priced correctly are going under contract very quickly. We are continuing to see high demand for homes priced under $350,000.
Mortgage rates look to remain in the 4% – 4.5% for the foreseeable future as our economy is very strong with low inflation. We should keep an eye on the tariff disputes with China and Mexico. I do not anticipate them having too large of an impact on our economy and the real estate market but it is
