Taking Matters Into Their Own Hands

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Portland Premiere

Toll Brothers Inc. is a luxury homebuilder who is tired of watching buyers sit on the sidelines waiting for mortgage rates to hit bottom.   They are now offering on their new-home inventory a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage at an interest rate of 3.99% with no points paid up-front.  The idea is to get those teetering on the fence to finally jump off and buy. 

This is a brilliant idea on their part and the phone has been ringing off the hook.  Now they are even locking that rate in for nine months for those who want to buy a new, built-to-suit home.

Tony and Libby, great rates don't always equate to more closings. The lenders still have to approve the loans. Toll Brothers are on the upper end of the market, and that is the worst performing sector of all. Great idea, I hope it works.

Brings HOME Results!

- interest rates sure makes it more appealing for home buyers & owners considering refinancing and should motivate them. In the article Time to Get Off the Fence and Into a Home, the same message comes in an article from NYTimes.com offered by Your Money. Another source with this message was from Smart Money, Time to refinance -- or buy a home? Good information to pass on to our buyers.

Best wishes for 2009!
