Birmingham Loan Rates Drop From Previous Week
Unless you have enough cash in pocket to buy a home outright, you’re probably going to be looking to get a loan when the time comes.
And here’s some good news from the mortgage industry:
Interest rates for the Shelby Co. and Birmingham area have dropped, compared to a week ago.
Rates for 30-year fixed loans have dropped to around 4.8%, down from around 5.0% at this time last week.
Rates for 15-year fixed loans have also slipped from last week’s 4.3% range to the current 4.2%.
So, what does this mean if you’re thinking of buying a home? Simple: The cost of getting a loan is still extremely attractive.
If you’re considering buying a home in the Birmingham/Shelby Co. area and want to get the purchase financed, your best bet—even before starting to look at homes—is to start talking with a Lender. That way, you’ll be well on your way to having your financing already lined up when you find the home of your dreams!
