Mortgage Rates Too Good to Be True?

How to sort through the fine-print and know what you're really getting.

We've noticed a lot of unbelievable mortgage rates being advertised lately. Like anyone we were impressed with rates as low as 4.00% covering the pages of the Dispatch in full color. But, then we got our magnifying glass out and read the fine print on the ads. Clearly, the news of lower rates has lead some builders to create finance packages that offer super-low rates, but they are sure to cause you grief in the long run.

Many of these super-low, below-market rates are the result of tricky financing packages. Sure, you'll get a 4.00% rate on your mortgage for the first year, but then what? The new paint in your kitchen will barely have dried when your rate spikes, as much as three points, in the second year of your mortgage. It is exactly these types of lending products that have brought so many Americans to the brink of foreclosure.

Could you pay your mortgage if it jumped a thousand dollars or more a month?

If there is one thing we have all learned from the recent turmoil in the mortgage market, it's that we must look into the future before signing on the dotted line. Read the fine print. Are there hidden costs that render your great rate useless? How long is that rate locked in? Where will you be financially when it jumps?

At Jeffrey Place, we will honor these advertised financing plans. We will help you get an impossibly and temporary low rate with high PMI and interest rate jumps, because we want you to be happy. But we will strongly advise another route. We've created a product that doesn't need smokes and screens. And we did our homework to find the best financing options available. At Jeffrey Place, we want our residents to make money, and to save money.
