Over the past 20 years, the average interest rate has been between 6% and 7%. We have had record low interest rates in the past two years and they are heading up again. Jumbo loan mortgage rates have recently risen to 4.5% and are continuing to climb. The time to buy is now to get the best investment. The average sale price of a home in the past three months in Coral Gables is about $1M. This is what your payments would look like if you purchased a $1M home at today’s rates (based on 20% down/$800,000 loan) and if those increase.
