5 Real Estate Articles Worth Reading

Hey there, I hope your year is off to a strong start.

The reason I’m writing this quick article for you is that the Coronavirus is spreading worldwide – and faster than expected. It’s now even hitting over here in US where we are all living. And as I write this, the global markets are reacting strongly (which is to be expected).

I think at times like this no one puts scary times into better perspective than Warren Buffett.

And he did one incredible job today of reminding everyone that – while the human tragedy of this virus is horrible – it should not change your long term investment goals or strategies. The truth is, no one calms me down the way Warren Buffett does during times like these. We can look at the bright side of things right now.

The fact is, the economic worries that the Coronavirus is creating are also forcing interest rates down to the lowest we have seen in three years. There is a really good chance that right now you could refinance your mortgage and save a fortune.

Specifically, rates have come down by a ½ to 1% on 30 Year Mortgages.

According to mortgage data, there’s now 11.5 million people (maybe you!) who can refinance their home and save upward of $260 a month.

That’s over $3,000 in a year, $30,000 in a decade, and over $90,000 of the life on a standard mortgage.

That’s a huge deal. Refinancing now might help you retire 5 to 10 years sooner.

The interest rate gods are shining down on homeowners right now, according to financial expert David Bach, and Americans should take advantage ASAP. Therefore, don’t let this virus derail your investment confidence.
