The latest news on the Tampa Real Estate Market, The Best Neighborhoods in Tampa and the International Real Estate Market, every day on The Real Estate Sizzle!

While Christmas shoppers head into the last week of scooping up the “bargains” in  the retail industry, homebuyers in the Tampa Real Estate Market should be focused on buying a house in the next month, or so.  Local mortgage brokers are offering mortgage rates below 5%.  Combine low interest rates, with discounted home values and you have the “Buyer’s Dream Market” in Tampa!  I saw Jumbo Rates (mortgages over $417,000) for 5.75% yesterday!  Get those visions of sugarplums out of your heads and start thinking “long term”….a 30 year fixed rate below 5% vs. 6% will save you over $100,000 in payments.

Want to get an even LOWER mortgage rate when you buy a home in Tampa, or Clearwater Beach right now?  Contact me today about how to take advantage of the “buyer’s market” and how to get a “free appraisal”, or “lower interest rate” in the Tampa Real Estate Market!

Mortgage Rates at 4.5%?? A Gift for Homebuyers in the Tampa Real Estate Market

Filed under: Buying a House in Tampa, Clearwater Beach Real Estate, Davis Islands Real Estate, Florida Real Estate, Gated Communities in Tampa, mortgage news, Tampa Foreclosures, Tampa Home Search, Tampa Real Estate, Tampa Real Estate Market

The latest news on The Tampa Real Estate Market, Buying a House in Tampa, the Best Tampa Neighborhoods and International Real Estate Issues, every day on The Real Estate Sizzle…

The Tampa Real Estate Market is “abuzz” today with the news of mortgage rates dropping to 4.5%.  My phone has been ringing all morning.  Is it true?

Maybe!  The Treasury Department is considering the purchase of mortgage-backed securities from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which would encourage lenders to lower 30–year fixed rates to 4.5%, thereby stimulating activity in the housing industry, with a “trickle down” effect to the rest of the economy. The Treasury Department is expected to make a decision as early as Monday. So, stay tuned.

My advice?  If you are looking for a home in Tampa, or looking to invest in the real estate market, THIS IS THE TIME.  There are plenty of bargains, and foreclosures, in Tampa Real Estate, as well as the Clearwater Beach Real Estate Market.  Sellers are willing to negotiate. When the rates drop again, you need to LOCK and BUY! 

What does that mean?  Most lenders will “lock” your interest rate, for a certain length of time, usually 30 – 45 days. If you are a homebuyer, you need to be prepared to move quickly, to lock an interest rate, find a home, and close in 30 days! Take advantage of the “Best Buyer’s Market” in recent history…low interest rates and lower home prices are a homebuyer’s dream!

Looking for Tampa Real Estate?  Bargains? Foreclosures? Great Neighborhoods and School Districts in Tampa?  Contact me today, for help with the homebuying process, or a local mortgage lender!

I can help with your move to any Tampa neighborhood, including: South Tampa, Davis Islands, Beach Park, Sunset Park, Hyde Park, Culbreath Isles, Palma Ceia, Westchase, Waterchase, Odessa, Cheval, Avila, Brandon, Riverview, FishHawk, New Tampa, Tampa Palms, Hunters Green, Arbor Greene, Apollo Beach, South Shore, MiraBay, Golf Communities, Clearwater Beach, Waterfront Homes, Luxury Homes in Tampa, Condos in Tampa and International Real Estate contact me today!
