Is purchasing a home on your agenda? Join Us for a Free Seminar For most of 2016, interest rates were at an all-time low. However, after the 2016 election, rates started to climb slightly. If you’re like some prospective buyers, you may be deciding whether or not you should buy now or wait until the dust settles. Rest assured, owning a home is still within reach. Rates are still affordable and sensible home options are always available. Interest rates can impact your bottom line. However, being financially sound can work favorably to keep your rates low. Having a high credit score or a down payment to buy down the rate, can help you get a better deal. In addition, members of credit unions, typically are offered lower loan rates, than when being serviced at a national bank.
