Getting a Mortgage in Milton Means Weighing the Alternatives

A vital part of buying a Milton home is getting a Milton mortgage. But not all mortgages are the same. There are two general classes of mortgages; fixed rate mortgages keep the same interest rate for the full duration of the debt. The interest rates for adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs) change every year after an initial period expires. You also choose the duration of the loan.

That’s the easy part. When it comes to choosing those details, coming up with the right option for your family can be a brain-twister (especially when you realize how big a difference different future scenarios might present). When you go about getting a Milton mortgage, you need to account consider the major factors -

· Affordability. Your budget for month-to-month payments is the largest single element to gauge when getting a mortgage in Milton. If you want to ensure lower monthly payments and minimize the risk of increases, tilt toward a longer-term fixed rate mortgage. If you can afford to risk a higher interest rate, a short-term ARM might be best.

· Future Rates. This can be a key issue when choosing between a fixed-rate mortgage and an ARM. If you suspect interest rates will decrease over time, you might tilt toward the ARM, since those mortgage payments will eventually decrease along with interest rates. If interest rates are headed up over the long haul, a fixed rate lets you to lock in today’s lower rates.

· Permanence. If you plan to live in your new home for just a short period, your choice for getting a mortgage may be less complicated. ARMs usually start out at a lower rate than do fixed-interest mortgages, and if you move before the adjustment period begins, you can take advantage of the lower initial rate and avoid the future possible payment increase.

Like all financial decisions, getting a mortgage in Milton should be carefully undertaken: always keeping in mind your long-term financial goals. I’m here to help clarify the many issues that enable my clients’ success: call me today if you are thinking about a move this spring!

A Surer Way to Find the Average House Price in Milton

When you do a web search for “average house price in Milton,” you come up with a lot of good, not-so-good, and just plain lame information. If you were looking for a general idea of what the current market says that homes like yours in your neighborhood are worth, the results are likely to be more amusing than anything else.
You always come up with the national sites’ average listing price for homes for sale in Milton. Depending upon how recently their data engine found and tossed out duplicates and errors, and that can be an interesting number. You will also get state real estate trends, a list of average sold prices (this one seems to be subject to error); an instant, somewhat dubious calculation for the average price per square foot of a house in Milton; and ads. Lots and lots of ads. But almost all of the “averages” are affected by listings and/or sale prices for “lot/land for sale” and the like…hardly useful unless your own house has recently disappeared. Likewise, unless your property is a weekend getaway chalet, any “charming, quiet cabin” listings will send the “average house price in Milton” calculation seriously awry.
On a recent web excursion, I did stumble across a great cartoon presentation at the CNN.com site. It was an animation that showed how the average American home has changed over the past 40 years. The graphics show a typical house as it expands, contracts, adds features and loses them (the fireplace disappeared about 10 years ago: who knew that?).
With a tip of the hat to creator Bard Edlund, here’s a synopsis of the highlights:
1973 found the median new single family residence at 1,525 square feet.
A mere seven years later, air conditioning and a fireplace had appeared…anyone familiar with the era might be forgiven for retrieving the mental image of President Nixon’s Oval Office fireplace roaring while the air conditioning blasts away…
In 1984, George Orwell’s’ predictions aren’t totally in place, but the square footage has stretched to 1,605, and the average house price is $79,900. Ten years later, the house has expanded to 1,940 square feet, average house price is $130,000.
That “average house price” growth is pretty convincing: the narrator backtracks to point out that “the median sales price has gone from $64,600 in 1980 to $169,000 just 20 years later.” Alas, even though the cartoon doesn’t show a wrecking crew tearing it out, “the fireplace disappears in 2007” (there’s still one in the White House, though); “right before the house contracts during the economic crisis.” Then the recovery: by 2013, the average price of $268,900 supports a house having 2,384 square feet of space: 56% larger than the house of 40 years ago.
The animations and commentaries are diverting—and asking Bing or Google for the average Milton house price does get you a raft of information—but if you are seriously pricing our current Milton market, a specific detailed search right here on my site will get you a lot closer to the information you need. And if you are considering the sale of your own home, you deserve a professionally researched comparable analysis—the kind performed by an experienced, licensed area Realtor®. That’s me, and I’d be pleased to perform exactly that kind of thorough-going ‘comp’ for your property, with no obligation attached. And you don’t have to search further: I’m just a phone call away!
