Summer Savings

Posted on June 2, 2011. Filed under: First Time Buyer help |

We asked one of our friends in lending to give us the sizzling summer deals.  Here’s an option for option for safely getting more home for less from Barry Zanck.  “I give away money” is my common reply when queried about my profession. Well, there is of course a hitch being that we take your house as collateral and, if you don’t pay us back..… Okay, my favorite loan program is a 10/1 adjustable rate mortgage that has a fixed rate for the first ten years. The advantage? Almost 1.5% below the 30 year fixed rate and still a Fannie/Freddie loan with no prepayment penalty. Since the average loan is kept only 4.3 years and you are allowed to prepay all the principle you want, this loan can offer some real interest rate savings. For example at $400,000 30 year fixed at 4.5 % (4.622%APR) has a 30 year payment of $2026.74. A 10/1ARM has a 10 year set payment of $1740.83 3.25% (3.421%APR) for a savings of $285.91 monthly! Now, throw just a little more than half that savings into principle reduction and you 10 year loan can be a 15 year fully paid off loan!
Call me, I have other ideas that work just as well.
