  • The average down payment for first-time homebuyers is only 6%.  But many first-time home buyers pay even less. FHA is currently only 3.5% Down!  And there are still some 100% purchase loans which means very little out of pocket.
  • Mortgage interest rates have been on the decline since November! Hop in now to lock in a low rate! April 2019 is the lowest for mortgage rates in the last 12 months.
  • The cost to rent a home is going up.  88% of property managers raised their rents in the last 12 months!
  • The average credit score on approved loans continues to fall across many loan types. FHA minimum credit score is currently 640.
