An INTEREST ing Rate Chart from 1972 to 2010 

 Here is a chart showing the history of interest rates since 1972. They are currently the best they will most likely be especially since, come March 31st the government’s program to buy mortgage backed securities will be ending and all economists are predicting rates to go up after that. With the rates where they are and home prices being held down and with the IRS’s tax credits expiring APRIL 30th (for written contracts to close by July 1st), there is little time to spare to find a home! Use our search function to see what might be of interest to you and then email us or call us to assist you in your search. Chart provided courtesy of John Tyrrell of Chapel Hill NC.   Click on "Read More" below to see graph showing rates from 1972 to present...


Is your townhouse protected with fire insurance or not? 

 Beware townhouse owners!  Check with your Homeowners Association or Property Management Company to see if your townhome's structure is properly insured in case of fire!  You may think you are insured but there are more and more HOAs not covering property insurance - just liability on common area.

Buy a House and Fix it UP! 

 Live in the Chapel Hill, Orange, Durham, Wake or Chatham County NC area? Get a regular conventional loan and renovate your “new” house! As little as 5% down plus closing costs may be all it takes if the loan is under conforming loan limits ($417,000). Closing costs and interests rates are a little higher than a loan without the renovation money included.   Or get an FHA loan with only 3.5% down (closing costs and rates are also a little more than non-renovation loans). FHA loans, while requiring less down payment, have loan amount restrictions based on county location.  See how this works...
