Interest Rates at Record Lows and Home Prices Rising

Record Low Interest Rates on Home LoansArticle by Dennis Black of US Lending Company

Mortgage interest rates remain at record lows while home prices are stating to rise for the first time in five years. We have been seeing multiple offers and bids for over asking price on homes that are priced right. We have also seen appraisers commenting that the home is in a stabilizing market throughout most of California.

Nationwide, home values rose 0.2% year-over-year to a median $149,300 during the second quarter, the first annual increase since 2007. Prices were up 2.1% from the first quarter.

First time home buyers and investors have flooded the market. Many owners have been able to drastically lower there monthly payment by taking advantage of the historically low interest rates. Depending on loan to value and credit score a no cost refinance is an option.
