Low Mortgage Rates – Too Good To Be True?

Mon, 23rd January, 2012 - Posted by Sean Kavanagh - (0) Comment


What you should know about deeply discounted mortgage rates

You’ve heard the expressions ‘cheapest isn’t always best’ OR ‘you get what you pay for’. This also applies to shopping for the best mortgage rates. When you are looking at paying off your largest investment over 25-30 years, it is easy to jump on the lowest rate available. But, the low-rate mortgages could actually cost you more in the long run.

Check The Fine Print: These low rate mortgages often are the least flexible when it comes to paying off the mortgage or getting out of the mortgage before the term is up. For instance, is the mortgage fully closed? That means you’re not leaving the lender unless you sell your house, so your options are limited and you have no negotiating power if your needs change in the next 5 years.
Low or no prepayments: Many mortgage options allow home owners to pay up to 20% of the outstanding principal each year, where low-rate mortgages may only allow 10%. Many lenders will also allow you to make unlimited double up payments throughout the year, where low-rate mortgages may not allow any double up payments.
Maximum 25-year amortization: Many first time home buyers need the extra flexibility of having a 30 year mortgage. The low-rate mortgages can take away flexibility you may need later.

For the same reasons I caution buyers about hiring a discount brokerage to handle their real estate transactions, I also caution you about signing up for the lowest mortgage rate on the market. You always get what you pay for and the cheapest isn’t always the best.

If you are considering a discounted mortgage rate, call me first to discuss what to look for in the contract. I will help you find the right combination of low rate and contract terms that will meet both your current and future financial needs.

“Sean handled 3 real estate transactions for my business and my family in a period of 2 months. He was an advisor, an expert and a friend all wrapped up in one person. He negotiated our two purchases with acumen of an old hand, and when it came to selling our home, he displayed rare perseverance and negotiating skills. I am glad I have had the opportunity to experience atypical real estate deals with Sean. If you’re looking for a generous agent to fight your battle for you, hire Sean Kavanagh.”
