Mortgage Rates

A notion has developed that the American dream of homeownership is slipping out of reach, but with mortgage rates lower than they have ever been, Uncle Sam is doing what he can to keep the dream alive for low-income families.

El Segundo, CA (PRWEB) April 27, 2013

With record-low mortgage rates at such affordable levels, now is an opportune time for prospective buyers to finance a home purchase. To help consumers take the leap into homeownership, GoBankingRates has created a guide to finding the best mortgage rates today for borrowers with low income.

According to Zillow.com, current average mortgage rates in the U.S. for a 30-year fixed mortgage loan are at a low 3.29%, and home loan rates are expected to remain at this level through mid-2015, according to the Federal Reserve.

In fact, in an interview with ABC News, chief economist with Raymond James, Scott Brown, said “The idea is that you want to encourage more economic activity. Having low interest rates, consumers are more likely to be able to borrow, take risks and to make car and home purchases.”

Consumers can use the helpful tips included in the GoBankingRates guide to identify mortgage assistance options that fit their financial needs, which includes additional information regarding low-income home-buying programs.

“A notion has developed that the American dream of homeownership is slipping out of reach, especially after the recession,” says Jennifer Calonia, editor of GoBankingRates, “but with mortgage rates lower than they have ever been, Uncle Sam is doing what he can to keep the dream alive for low-income families.”
