Episode 470: Insights and Updates

Hey everyone! Welcome to a special update on Albuquerque’s real estate world. Tracy and Tego Venturi from the Venturi Group and a top mortgage expert, Joanna Rushing, are here to share some important news.

What’s Happening with Mortgage Rates?

Significant changes are happening in the world of home loans. Joanna Rushing, a super-smart mortgage loan officer, tells us that interest rates have dropped significantly recently. This is excellent news for people looking to buy a home because lower rates mean you can afford more expensive houses or lower your monthry mortgage payment.

Best Time to Buy a House?

Is now a good time to buy a house? According to our experts, yes! Home prices tend to be lower around this time of year, so you might get a better deal. Plus, there’s less competition from other buyers.

Staying Smart with Your Mortgage

Joanna emphasizes the importance of staying in touch with your mortgage officer. Things in the loan world can change quickly, and you want to be up-to-date. She also advises not to make big financial changes, like buying a car, during the home-buying process.

Misconceptions About Foreclosures

There’s a lot of talk about foreclosures, but our experts say the situation isn’t as bad as some think. Most homeowners are doing okay with their mortgages, so there’s no big worry about a bunch of homes being foreclosed.

Albuquerque’s Unique Housing Initiative
