The recent announcement of the Federal Reserve’s intentions to purchase Treasury securities over the next six months has pushed mortgage interest rates down to levels so low that the rates are making history.
Rates so low that 30 year fixed home mortgages are below 5% and who would have guessed that? Certainly not the manufacturer of Rick’s (my working partner and fellow Prudential Gary Greene, Realtor) business cards.
To the right is the once handy little monthly payment chart that Rick has printed on the back of his real estate business cards. The chart’s not as handy now since interest rates are below 5% and are not depicted.
Lower interest rates are good when you are in the real estate market for a Spring Texas home but not good when you have to replace business cards due to outdated charts. Oh well, I guess the charts will make good bookmarks.

We lived in the area for about 3 years before taking the house-hunting plunge and truly could not have chosen a better realtor to work with. Jill is professional and patient, she is an incredible resource who is 100% there for her clients at all times. We had a lot of questions and didn't want to pay any closing costs or prepaid costs out of pocket - Jill is a Master Certified Negotiation Expert and it SHOWS. We got exactly what we wanted at the price we wanted AND had several bonuses thrown in, including appliances and gutters. She was there for inspections/walk-throughs and kept in contact with our builder's salesperson as well. If you want a strong realtor who is also pleasant to work with (which I've learned is rare), then Jill is the realtor for you!! read less
