Real Estate Interest Rates Drop

It’s not just about the prices of Steamboat real estate that determines affordability of buying a Steamboat home. Interests rates matter a lot when buying a home. Lower rates means you can afford a better home.

A year ago we were saying that interest rates were at an “all time low” – which they were. We also felt they would not go down much from there. Today we look back and shake our heads. Today’s rates:

30 year fixed = 4.125
30 Year Jumbo = 4.250
5/1 ARM = 2.99
5/1 Jumbo ARM = 3.99
USDA = 4.750
