Are Interest Rates Stopping You From Buying Real Estate Today? It doesn’t have to…

The news is full of bad news – that’s why The Caton Team is here to change the narrative. Yes – rates did jump 2nd Quarter of 2022 and it rippled through the Real Estate Market. Today – late January 2023, rates have settled down a bit from their nightmarish high of around 7% – today we’re seeing 4.5-6% popping up again.

BUT… it’s still not the 3% we loved in 2021! So, if Buying Bay Area Real Estate is still a goal – when the news says the market is down – now is the time to act – so let’s talk about solutions.

Welcome Home Funding, a division of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, is offering two products to help wishful home buyers get into a home while the market is soft – i.e. – that short window when it’s a buyer’s market here in the Bay Area.

Welcome Home Funding is offering a RATE BUY DOWN. Take a look at the example below. Year 1 – the interest rate is nice and low, getting a buyer into a property and each year it goes up a point*.

Next up is the Welcome Home Funding – RATE REBOUND. No one knows when the market will peak or where interest rates will land but with RATE REBOUND a buyer can rest assured that if rates drop further they can take advantage of the lower rate with NO lender fees on the refinance within 5 years of their purchase AND get a $1000 credit to go towards third parties fees associated with refinancing – like the appraisal report and new credit pull. Please note this product has a promotional lifespan. Homes must be IN Contract by 6.30.2023 and Close Escrow by 9.30.23 to qualify. Please note lender fees do apply to the original purchase loan with Welcome Home Funding.
