How to get a big mortgage deal in 2019
A mortgage deal for your next big home could be worth as much as $200,000, according to a new study by a research firm.
GeekWire has found that the average value of a first-time homebuyer’s mortgage is currently $350,000.
That’s a $150,000 increase from last year, and the average loan size is up 20 percent.
This is just the first wave of data we’ve been getting about this trend.
The average loan value of the $250,000+ homebuyers we surveyed was $300,000 in 2016, and that figure is expected to rise another $20,000 this year, according for Zillow, which tracks home prices.
But there’s a catch.
The data only includes those who own their homes, not those who are actively looking to purchase.
For comparison, the average mortgage for a first home buyer was $350 and the median loan size was $400 in 2015.
The average loan amount is not a perfect measure of a homeowner’s financial standing, however, because it doesn’t include any equity.
That means a typical $150 million homebuyERG will be paying a $500,000 down payment, and an average $400,000 homeowner will have to put $200 million in equity into the deal.
The median amount a homebuy is paying for the loan, however is still impressive.
According to the Zillows data, the median homebuy has to pay $7,800 in monthly payments.
The median amount the buyer is paying on a down payment is $2,600.
Geeking out on home prices in the MidwestA new report by Credit Suisse shows that the median house price in the U.S. is currently rising at the fastest rate in more than three years.
According to the report, the national median house was worth $265,000 last month, up from $220,000 a year earlier.
That makes it the most expensive in six years.
The biggest gainers in that time were in the Northeast, the Midwest and the South.
The price index is also up 9 percent in the West and 10 percent in other regions.
Credit Suise says that prices have grown more quickly in the South than the North, where the median price is still just above the national average.
The trend is also happening in other parts of the country.
The index has jumped 10 percent nationally in the last year.
