Daily Mortgage Rates Summary at US Bank Corp

Choosing to move along the same pathway, the popular American mortgage provider, US Bank Corp (NYSE: USB), decided to make no positive or negative changes to its benchmark 30 year fixed mortgage interest rates on September 9, 2014. As per the most recent mortgage rate charts issued by the lender on Tuesday Sept 9, 2014, the ideal home purchase loans can be seen listed at the same lending rates as Monday, Sept 8th, 2014.

To start with, in the standard, long term home loan division, the bank quotes its 30 year fixed mortgage interest rates at an interest rate of 4.500% and an annual percentage rate of 4.673% today. In the short term home loan section, the bank trades its 15 year fixed rate mortgage options at an interest rate of 3.500% and an APR yield of 3.811%. The interested customers can also spot the shortest, 10 year fixed rate mortgage home loan plans being listed in the banks books at an interest rate of 3.375% and an APR yield of 3.823% on Tuesday September 9, 2014.

The potential mortgage shoppers, who are facing issues in securing conventional home loans due to their poor credit score of the past, or inability to service heavy down payments, can acquire the FHA backed 30 year fixed rate mortgage home loans by bearing an interest cost of 4.375% and an APR yield of 4.879%. The relatively shorter, 15 year FHA fixed rate mortgage loans can now be secured at an interest rate of 4.000% and an APR yield of 4.565% today.

For the borrowers with exclusive mortgage requirements, the bank offers jumbo versions of its popular 30 year fixed rate mortgage deals at an interest rate of 4.625% and an APR yield of 4.777%. The relatively shorter, 15 year counterparts of the 30 year jumbo fixed rate mortgage home loan deals can be secured at an interest price of 3.750% and an APR yield of 4.008%.

As far as the adjustable rate mortgage loans are concerned, the best 3 year flexible home loan packages can be seen traded at a starting interest rate of 2.250% and an APR yield of 3.261% during the starting years of the home loan tenure. The more flexible, 5 year adjustable rate mortgage home loans are now up for grabs at a lending rate of 2.625% and an APR yield of 3.250% on the principal amount of home loan secured from the bank.

Home Prices Rise at Slower Pace

Home prices are rising much more slowly than last year, according to two reports released 26th August, 2014.

U.S. home prices rose 0.8 percent in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the previous quarter, according to the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s seasonally adjusted house price index. Year after year, prices climbed 5.2 percent in the second quarter compared to the same quarter last year.

Not good enough?

This is the 12th consecutive quarterly increase in the index, but it’s not as strong as numbers seen last year.

“The extraordinary price appreciation observed over the last few spring seasons was not evident in the second quarter of this year,” FHFA principal economist Andrew Leventis says. “FHFA’s data indicate that house price appreciation in the quarter was near or below the baseline rate of inflation in most states.”

The FHFA index is calculated, using home sales price information from mortgages sold to or guaranteed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

More evidence that rising prices have slowed

The S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index, another closely watched housing report, also shows home price growth has been coming down. According to data released Tuesday, the national home price index increased 6.2 percent in the 12 months that ended in June. The year-over-year change last year was 7.1 percent.

“Home price gains continue to ease as they have since last fall,” says David M. Blitzer, Chairman of the Index Committee at S&P Dow Jones Indices. “For the first time since February 2008, all cities showed lower annual rates than the previous month.”

Although the latest numbers are not great news for homeowners and home sellers, there’s no need to be concerned about the possibility of prices declining.

“Other housing indicators — starts, existing-home sales and builders’ sentiment are positive. Taken together, these point to a more normal housing sector,” Blitzer says.

Tips For Selling Your Home – Selling Your Home Fast

This is the age and the generation of fast food. Everyone wants everything to be done fast, so that they can save both time and money. Not everything when done fast will give good results or even save on time and money. Selling a home fast is not a simple task, though not impossible. You can sell a home fast with the services of professionals who are the experts.

There could be myriad reasons for wanting to sell a home fast. These reasons could easily be converted into a driving force to fell all barriers and sell your home fast.

Remember to highlight the advantages of your home, in front of a potential buyer. Make your home look attractive and welcoming. It will be to your advantage if you can bring out the good points of your home and also make it look attractive. It will definitely bring results faster rather than otherwise.

You will need a little professional help if you hope to sell your home fast. You can use the services of an interior designer to spruce up the interiors of your home. There is no doubt that a home with attractive interiors will definitely sell at a much faster pace and also at a much better price as compared to an unattractive house.

You can have a professional organizer to help you organize your home to make it look cleaner and well organized. The organizer can help you organize the stuff you have properly in the bathrooms, closets, garage, basement and attic, to give a clean and tidy look to your home.

Once your home is at its best, you could get a professional photographer for clicking a series of pictures of your home, from the outside and the inside. You may wonder at the need of professionally done pictures. Well most people look for future homes on the net, so it is good idea to advertise on a property website. If you can put up attractive pictures or if possible a virtual tour through a series of pictures could mean a lasting impression on the potential buyer who is searching for his dream home on the net. If a buyer is not impressed with the picture you put up on the website, you cannot expect him to take further interest in your home. But a good picture is worth thousand words.

Another important thing is that make sure that there are no termites in your home. Take care of the plumbing and the electrical wiring. Get to know about the water quality, septic tanks, kind of pipes you have etc. once you are completely ready give the finishing touches and you can now throw the house open for “open house”. Choose a time of the day which brings out the beat in your home. Say you have a lovely garden, then you could choose the morning hours, when the garden is at its best, i.e. before the blooms fade. Maybe the house looks great during sunset, whatever is the high point. Choose accordingly.

Selling a home fast is not an impossible task. Yes you may have to make the extra expenses for the professional services of an interior decorator, an organizer or even a professional photographer, but treat these expenses as an investment, as it will pay off really fast. Much sooner than you could have expected it to. So happy selling your home fast.
