Hinesville Custom Builder Sees A Drop In Interest Rates

Now may be one of the best times in history to buy a new home. That’s because the interest rates are lower than they have ever been in many years. The mortgage rate research website, BurlingtonMortgage.biz announced at the end of June 2012 that mortgage rates remain at the historic low point for both 30 year fixed and 15 year fixed home loans. The interest rates posted by mortgage lenders on the website showed record lows.

Overholt Construction, serving Hinesville, Georgia, is a leader in custom home building for Southeast Georgia and sees this as good news for consumers and first time home owners.

According to Freddie Mac the average 30 year fixed rate mortgage averaged a record low 3.66% (0.7 points) for a second straight week. 15 year fixed pricing saw a small drop going from 2.95% (0.6 points) the week of June 21st to 2.94% the last week in June.

Mortgage rates staying at these super low levels is also good news for potential current home owners hoping to refinance.

When you have very low interest rates for a home mortgage it can really make your net worth increase over the life of the loan. Homes should increase in value at a slow but steady rate and this will make buying a home a good investment again.
