Over the last several weeks reports of 2014 and expectations of 2015 have been the focus of many news articles, press releases and websites.  Overall 2014 national home sales were down 3.1% from 2013, but that is not necessarily a surprise considering the low inventory issues that continue across the country.  Average home prices however rose 5.8%! That is great news for homeowners trying to recoup some of the equity lost during the downturn.

Atlanta is projected by CNN Money to have an 11% home sales growth in 2015, which is above what the National Association of Realtors projects for the nation in 2015.  With the growth in Atlanta business and the continuing addition of new companies to the area, the real estate market is sure to continue on its upward path. Interesting also is that by the end of 2015 Millenials will be the largest group of first time homeowners.

15 year mortgage ratesThere has been a lot of talk about 15 year mortgages lately. It is no surprise with interest rates close to 3%. For many people who have been in their homes for several years and have 30 year mortgage rates between 5-6% this may be the perfect opportunity to save themselves  a lot of money in interest. You payment will go up a bit, but not drastically.

CNN Money gave this great example using a $200,000 mortgage balance.

Their payments may not fall — as a matter of fact, they’ll go up by about $340 a month for someone refinancing a mortgage balance of $200,000. But instead of making payments of $1,075 a month for 25 more years, they’ll pay $1,423 for 15 years and then be mortgage free. So, if they can afford the higher monthly bills, borrowers can save more than $137,000 in interest over the term of the loan.

$137,000 and several years off the term of your loan sounds pretty enticing, doesn’t it? Mortgage rates will most likely not stay this low forever. If you are interested in refinancing talk to a trusted lender and get all the details about closing costs and how it will effect your monthly bills. It’s a great time to consider it.
