What ACTUALLY Affects Interest Rates?

How do I get the lowest interest possible? This is one of the first questions a buyer asks when starting their search for a new home. We decided to bring in an expert to give you the real deal on what determines the interest rate you get.  Scott Groves with Movement Mortgage is a local lender who does a lot of business in this neighborhood.  Take it away, Scott!

"So, did you wake up today excited to read about Greece's debt restructuring plan?  Did you immediately got to CNBC to check the current price of the German "Bund" (their version of our treasury bonds)?  Were you waiting by your computer at 6:30 a.m. for the stock market's opening bell to see how the redemption rate and cash-flow of money in-and-out of stocks and bonds was going to affect mortgage interest rates?

Guess what, neither did I!

However, these are just a few of the many things that affect rates on an hourly basis.

We just sold this dreamy Eagle Rock home

We just sold this dreamy Eagle Rock home

We just sold this midcentury traditional home for $850,000!

Located at 1311 Linda Rosa, this home epitomizes the Southern California dream: sipping drinks on the deck with friends and family, watching the sun set behind the hills at the far edge of Eagle Rock and the tall buildings in downtown Glendale. The fun continues on the huge patio below big enough for a quick basketball game and/or major alfresco bbq party. All the necessities symbolizing the good life are in view: the Trader Joe's sign, the playground at Dahlia Heights Elementary School, and just out of sight is the new refueling stop down the hill at Found Coffee. As summer looms, the central air-conditioning and the breeze that cools off Eagle Rock every afternoon are especially appealing. Both bathrooms, the kitchen and floors have been recently updated. The master suite downstairs can be a private oasis or can double as a family room.
