What a higher rate means for your bottom line
The monthly payment on a $200,000, 30-year fixed-rate mortgage at 3.35% (what it averaged in early May) is $881. When the rate goes up to 4.46% (what it averaged in late June), the monthly payment is $1,009, according to calculations from Truliaâs chief economist, Jed Kolko.
Or consider this rule of thumb: For every $100,000 borrowed, a percentage point increase in rate means an additional $83 a month in your monthly mortgage payment, said David Zugheri, executive vice president at Envoy Mortgage in Houston.
Is that enough to stop someone from buying a home? Probably not. But it will likely make someone consider to purchase that new home sooner then later, he said.
Even a smaller jump can be felt in a borrowerâs monthly budget. If you have questions, give me a call or email. (602) 432-3557 or firstname.lastname@example.org
