It is a good time to look at luxury real estate in Highlands NC. Borrowing money for luxury real estate just got cheaper,
almost 1.5% cheaper than a year ago in fact. A year ago the interest rate for a jumbo loan was over 6.8%, at the moment the interest rate for a jumbo loan is 5.43%, only about 1 percent higher that the current rate of a traditional 30 year fixed rate mortgage. A jumbo loan is a loan of more than $417,000. Property in Highlands North Carolina stands to gain from these new low rates.
Luxury real estate has taken a back burner in the nation’s recovery, with the focus being on credits for first-time home buyers and getting lower end real estate moving. These new lower jumbo rates will hopefully spark a fire under the higher end of the market. There are a number of fantastic luxury properties for sale in Highlands, lower rates making them more affordable than they have been in recent years.
The new low-interest rates can save a home buyer thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of dollars over the lifetime of a loan, adding to the affordability level. Contact us today to learn more about Highlands luxury real estate and examine what is available.
