With July 1 hitting us on a Wednesday and making for a short work week we find it a little quiet as it looks like people have taken advantage of the mid week day off and extended it with a Thursday/Friday day off making for a super long weekend.

We still have some great homes to showcase and I am going to start to provide the weekly rate specials. (As always rates subject to change without notice)

Interest Rate News

Now onto the interest rate news. Rates have continued to stay low and it looks like they will continue to do so for the near future. We are currently seeing 5 year fixed rates from 2.54% to 2.79% depending on how quick you can close. These rates have all the mortgage options attached to them so you can feel assured of a great mortgage product. The variable rate is currently sitting with as much as 70 off the banks prime lending rate. (Current prime rate is 2.85%). This equates to an initial mortgage rate offering of 2.15%. (O.A.C and subject to change without notice).

So as you can see it is still a great time to purchase or refinance a home. Enjoy the great weather we are having and give me a shout to discuss any of your mortgage questions. We have great rates and fantastic products to fit almost every niche.
