Hey everyone, today we wanted to send you a quick update about some changes in the mortgage world you need to know about. We have invited mortgage professional Jeff Williamson here today to take us through all the news.

Recently, there have been some changes to FHA mortgage insurance premiums. Over the last few years, those premiums have been on the rise, and a lot of people have deferred from FHA financing because of the high premiums. However, FHA recently announced a 50-point reduction for new loans. To give you an idea of the kinds of savings people are seeing, imagine you bought a house last year at $160,000. Your monthly mortgage insurance premium payment with this home is right around $175. 

Now, if you were to buy the same house this year, your premium payment would be lowered significantly, down to about $115 a month. You're looking at a $60 per month savings each month with these lower premiums.

In addition to this, FHA mortgage rates are down to around 3.5%, making homes even more affordable.
 Right now is a perfect time for first-time home buyers to enter the market because the low premiums, low rates, and low down payments are working together to make home ownership more affordable than ever.

If you have any questions about mortgages, feel free to give us or Jeff a call. We would be more than happy to help.

Omaha Real Estate Agent
Today we want to give you 5 key points about the 2015 real estate market that are being made by chief economists and forecasters across the country. These tips will give you a better picture of what will happen in the market this year, and help you navigate it better, whether you are a buyer, seller, or both.

1. Interest rates

They are probably going to rise this year. They have been kept down artificially in the past, but are going to rise as the economy continues to recover.

2. Millennials

Millennials, or people between the ages of 25-34, are going to make up 60% of home buyers this year. These first-time home buyers and those looking to move up will have the biggest impact on our market in 2015

3. New Construction

Another theme of 2015 will be the rise in new construction. We are seeing a ton of new construction right now in places like Elkhorn, Gretna, and Papillion. This will be another huge part of our market this year.

4. Credit

Credit is still going to be a huge factor in real estate. There are strict requirements on credit scores for buyers, but we can help. We have some great lenders who can help guide you and advise you on what your next step should be.

5. Foreclosures are gone

Those bargain, bank-owned properties we saw after the housing market bubble in 2008 are nearly all gone. If you are waiting for a steal, you will be disappointed. Don't miss the boat on low interest rates by being set on buying a foreclosed home.
 

If you have any questions for us, we would love to be of assistance. Just give us a call or send us an email and we will get right back to you.
