It may be easier to find your new house with lower mortgage rates

If you’ve been thinking about getting into the Northern VA real estate market, as a seller or a buyer, now is a great time. In Freddie Mac’s weekly rate report Thursday, they announced longterm U.S. mortgage rates slid for the third straight week. Now homebuyers have access to a 30-year fix rate at its lowest level since May 2013.

A 30-year fix averaged just 3.66 percent this week, down from 3.73 percent last week, according to Freddie Mac’s weekly rate report. The record low for a 30-year fix was 3.31 percent, set in late 2012.

Buyers, we could see the 3.3x percent range again, but why take that chance? Let’s set up a time to discuss financing options and find your new Northern VA home. Sellers, let’s talk today about your home’s market value, pinpoint a pricing strategy and set a staging plan for a successful home sale!
