Last week after the FED announced they would purchase $600 Billion of Mortgage-Backed securities backed by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Ginnie Mae, the mortgage interest rates dropped.
The move by the FED was designed to help increase the availability of credit while lowering the interest rate. And it certainly has lowered the interest rate. Not just by a fraction but by 1% from 6.5% to 5.5%.
Unlike a retail store that advertises a price for a certain period of time, interest rates are unpredictable and move on a daily basis. And to make matters worse, there is no one out there that can accurately predict how long the mortgage interest rates will stay at the low to middle five-percent range.
Thus if you are waiting for a good time to buy a Spring Texas home, the time is now. Get out there and purchase:

I've worked with agents in the past with whom I've been less than impressed, but Jill is top-notch. She is punctual, thorough, and patient. She has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the market, the builders, the school districts, the MUDs, and the neighborhoods. For the sale of our home, Jill took us step by step through the preparations necessary to get our house ready to show: everything from rearrangement of furnishings to referrals for handymen. When we started viewing potential houses to buy, I was amazed that Jill not only knew everything about the house she was showing me, but seemed to know details regarding all the neighboring houses as well. For the closings, Jill was an extra set of eyes, ensuring that the paperwork was in order. She also made sure that the the closing was at a convenient location and took as little time as possible (less than an hour in both instances). All throughout the process, Jill remained a driving force, constantly ensuring that inspection reports were being rendered promptly or that the mortgage provider was keenly aware of the closing date; and I received a steady stream of email updates from her. I couldn't be more pleased with her, and in the event we're once again in the market for another home, she would be my first call. read less
