If you have been looking to the move to the wonderful community of Glen Laurel then this year is the year to make your move. We have seen historically low mortgage interest rates and industry experts are predicting we will continue to see low rates throughout the rest of 2012. Greg McBride, senior financial analyst for Bankrate.com said, “We may spend the entire year below 5%.”
Rates right now are already sitting at all time record lows, making it the perfect time to buy your dream home in Glen Laurel or in the surrounding Triangle area. The first week of January, Freddie Mac’s weekly survey of conforming mortgage rates reported that 30-year fixed rates hit 3.91%. This number ties the record for the lowest rates that have been in the history of the survey. To put into perspective how low that is, the highest the survey has seen was in 1981 when interest rates hit a high of 18.63%. The annual average rate on a 30-year fixed rate mortgage reached its historic low last year with rates averaging 4.66% according to Bankrate.com and 4.5% according to Freddie Mac.
Freddie Mac is forecasting that interest rates will average 4.2% in the first quarter of 2012 and should average 4.8% in the fourth quarter of 2012. Continued low rates allow those potential buyers who were are working improving their credit to be able to take advantage of these low rates.
