Maybe you’ve been looking for a home for quite some time, and nothing on the market is meeting your needs. You might also be at a point where you don’t want to settle, and you want your dream forever home. In these situations, you might decide to build rather than buy an existing home, but how much does it really cost?
During 2020, a lot of people decided to make a change in their lifestyle. The coronavirus pandemic led to shutdowns across the country and the world. For people in big cities, that presented a set of challenges. With limited space and access to the things that are so appealing about city living, many people opted to move to suburban areas.
Sometimes things just don’t work out. For whatever reason, you might start to get the feeling you chose the wrong mortgage company. Or more specifically, you might have chosen the wrong loan officer. A mortgage lender’s reputation is on the line due to the performance of its staff.
If you’re planning to buy a new house, a big part of that is saving for a down payment. Your down payment is the money you put down when you close on a mortgage. Lenders will often describe down payments in terms of percentages.
Freddie Mac's results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey® shows that "Optimism continues as the economy slowly regains its footing, thus affecting mortgage rates. Though rates continue to rise, they remain near historic lows. However, when combined with demand-fueled rising home prices and low inventory, these rising rates limit how competitive a potential homebuyer can be and how much house they are able to purchase."
