Get An Ultra-competitive Rate On This Beautiful Warsaw, Indiana Home!

Although inflation keeps surprising the “experts”, you’d be surprised how low a rate you could get on this home, along with a small down payment

The latest inflation report came in at 3.7% , surprising everyone who expected 3.2%. As a result, mortgage rates have risen to the highest level in 23 years, and buyer demand continues to shrink. New home sales dropped 9% in August as the impact of The Fed’s rate hikes continues to take effect. But there are still good home buying opportunities, especially in Warsaw, Indiana.

What Would It Cost You Per Month?

Let’s run a simple scenario to see if you could afford this home.

$384,900 Purchase price
$19,245    Down payment
$365,655 Loan amount

$2,425/mo Principal & Interest payment per Zillow
$200/mo    Homeowners insurance estimate
$225/mo    Property taxes estimate
= $2,850    Total monthly payment estimate

$90,000/yr Homebuyer income
= $3,750     Qualifying income

Qualifying income: The total mortgage payment along with all other credit reported payments such as car loans, credit cards, student loans, cannot be higher than $3,750.


$500/mo     Credit card payment
$350/mo     Car payment
= $850/mo

$2,850        Total monthly payment estimate
+ $850        Credit card & Car payment
= $3,700     Total

Based on this scenario, you would qualify to buy this home, and you would still have $3,750 left over each month before taxes.

Much Ado About Rates

A lot of home buyers are hesitant to buy a home when rates are higher than they were a year ago. However, this is wrong-think and is costing you a lot of money. If you are renting, you are throwing money away each month that could be going towards building equity in your own home. If you are paying $2,000/mo renting and are waiting for rates to drop before you buy a home, you’re still wasting money each month. If rates dropped a whopping 3% on a $350,000 home loan, that would lower the monthly payment $674/mo. However, if you’re paying $2,000/mo in rent, you’re still wasting $1,326 every month.

High IQ buyers don’t wait for rates to drop when buying a home. They simply find the best rate they can, at the time of buying, then refinance when rates drop in the future. The key to long-term wealth building is to accumulate equity in your home as fast as possible. If you were to wait for three years until rates dropped, you’d waste almost $50,000 on renting that could have gone towards your own home equity.

Just as the key to retiring is to save as much as you can as early as you can, the key to homeownership that benefits you later in life when you really need it, is to buy as early in life as you can. Thirty years goes by in a flash; and, at the end of it, you’ll be thankful you bought your home early rather than waiting for the perfect opportunity to do so.
