The Benefits of Homeownership

Owning a home is more than just having a place to live. It's an investment in your future and your community.

Mortgage Rates: A Silver Lining

Great news for prospective homeowners! Mortgage rates have cooled slightly, now averaging 6.95%, according to Freddie Mac. This is a return to averages typical of a year ago, providing a more favorable environment for buyers.

“Mortgage rates continued to fall back this week as incoming data suggests the economy is cooling to a more sustainable level of growth,” says Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist. This dip in rates could mean lower monthly payments and more buying power for you.

Freddie Mac reports the following national averages for mortgage rates for the week ending June 13:

  • 30-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 6.95%, dropping from last week’s 6.99% average. A year ago, 30-year rates averaged 6.69%.
  • 15-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 6.17%, falling from last week’s 6.29% average. Last year at this time, 15-year rates averaged 6.10%.

Why Now Is a GOOD Time to Buy

With mortgage rates stabilizing and the market offering more options, now is an excellent time to consider purchasing a home. Take advantage of this opportunity to secure a great deal and start enjoying the many benefits of homeownership.
