    Thumbs up Prime RATE

    ITs time to buy a new home if your in the market. Prime is at lowest in history. 0 to .25%.

    I am looking at loan rates of 3.8 to 4 % right now.

    gosh darn, I am going to go refinance at that kind of rate. This could be a once in lifetime opportunity to get those kind of rates. Wonder how long borrowing money will be this cheap

    Not all lenders are using the new prime rate. This just went into effect yesterday so it could take a week for lenders to use the new prime rate.

    Now is a great time to buy due to the low price of housing due to the market slump and the low mortgage rates. The only problem is you gotta have great credit to get a loan along with a great job plus a decent down payment... say something along the lines of 20%.

    If you ain't got 20% or more to give, you ain't getting that low...

    Wife and I are lookin at RE-FI as well. I'm torn between lowering my payments, or shortening the loan duration. I've got a teenager soon to be in college (graduates next year), and not a whole lotta cash saved up for her. Plan is to have her do 2 years community college close to home, then transfer to a 4 year college close to home. Advanted of staying in state is less tuition, and housing is paid for by me. Any advice on this? Shorten duration, or take the lower payments? WWUD?
    I'm young too…..34 yrs old… I know, started FOOKIN early..

    I just bought a house with perfect credit and 20% down and could only get 6.5%..Only two banks offered credit with a 780 Credit becon..I had a buddy try to buy a car when I bought mine and got denied for a 18,000 loan with a 680 credit score With a co-signer with perfect credit he could only get 14.99% interest rate...They put these great rates out there and it really pisses me off because your not gonna get the rate they quote
