August 19, 2011          


Market is still moving at a fast pace.  The number of homes under contract are easily keeping up with the number of active listings.  Listings are slowly coming in, but get picked up fairly quickly. 


Rates are still at historically low levels.  That said, if your home value is within market range and your rate is over 6%, you should probably consider looking at refinancing depending on how far you are into your current mortgage.  If you need a good reference I would recommend Josh Heape with Castle & Cooke at 602-334-6446 or Jeff Hoffman with On Q Financial at 602-499-7771.  I am seeing people getting rates in the 3’s & 4’s right now. 


Another suggestion is if you have a home equity line that has a rate that is driven by the market and it is super low right now you may want to get it into a fixed rate.   These rates are being kept low and who knows for how long; if they go up quickly you may not miss this opportune time if you can take advantage of it.


Hope you have a fantastic weekend!
