MORTGAGE RATES have increased slightly in recent months but remain extremely low by historical standards. Mike Mento of Prosperity Mortgage recently shared the chart below which illustrates that point very clearly based on data collected by Freddi Mac. Further rate increases, however, could make it more expensive to purchase or refinance, so whether you’re preparing to buy a home, or want to refinance your existing home, contact Mike for mortgage info today at (609) 839-1203 or Michael.Mento@PHMLoans.com.
Today’s mortgage rates are still low based on historical rate data collected by Freddie Mac.
FLOOD ADVISORY SYSTEM: Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ, along with a group of other partners, has developed a free, online flood advisory system. If the indicator nearest your location is green, all is normal. Yellow indicates water levels near flood stage, and orange or red indicate more severe flooding. By selecting a monitoring station, recent water level history can be viewed, along with predicted water levels over the next few days. Check it out here: http://hudson.dl.
