Today's Mortgage Rates
Lowest Rates Since May, But There's a Catch

e 
Jul 13 2018, 2:55P<


Mortgage rates fell by an observable amount today--one of the few times they've done so in recent weeks.  Technically, today's average lender is offering the best we've seen since May 31st.  That sounds pretty great, right?!  Unfortunately, there's a fairly big catch.
While today's rates are indeed the best in a month and a half, the range during that time has been so excruciatingly narrow that most prospective mortgage borrowers will find the distinction fairly meaningless.  In almost all cases, the actual NOTE rate at the top of your loan quote will be the same as it has been for weeks.  The only change in lenders' rate sheets is in the upfront cost associated with that rate. 

In other words, if you'd seen a quote of 4.75% with 0 points yesterday, today's quote would be more like 4.75% with a lender credit of 0.15 points.  More simply put, if your mortgage amount is $300,000, that'd save you 450 bucks in closing costs.  Granted, $450 is $450, but it doesn't pack quite the same punch as "lowest rates since May!"

The Top 50 Luxury Real Estate Markets with 2018 Updated Medium Home Values

Mega Mansion range from 20,000 sq,ft. and Super Mansions over 50,000 sq.ft. Until the mid 20th century most "mansions" would have a hall, two or three salons or drawing rooms, library, billiards room, ball room, dining room, breakfast room, morning room, study and numerous bedrooms but only 2-3 bathrooms.
