Bend Home Financing

Financing a home in Bend Oregon is still easy.  Rates on 30 year fixed mortgages didn't change last week  Freddie Mac reported that 30 year, fixed rate mortgages averaged 6.52% for the week ending August 7.  That was the same as the prior week's rate, which marked the second-highest of the year.

Interest rates around 6 1/2% are still great.  I can remember back in the early 80s when interest rates on mortgages were 16%.  We were really happy when they finally came down to 12%!

There are a lot of good values on the market right now.  There are a lot of people that are going to look back in a few years and wish they had bought Bend Oregon real estate in 2008.
