Seems like every mortgage site (and ad) you see or hear will tantalize you with “unheard of rates that could end NOW”! Have you ever met someone that actually wound up with one of those mythical rates?
So how do they get away with it? Typically, they conveniently leave out the fact that in order to actually get those rates, you might need any or all of the following:
- Better than perfect credit. Warren Buffett might qualify.
- A ridiculous down payment.
- Thousands of dollars up front (“points”) to reduce the rate
- A shorter loan period (instead of the common 30 year length)
Rather than bait people with an unrealistic rate just to get them to contact us, we’d rather give you a conservative look at realistic available rates. Your actual rate could be slightly higher or slightly lower, depending on quite a number of factors.
Part of our job as professional mortgage providers is to analyze your current situation and assist you in finding just the right product for you. Rate is only one factor!
