Real Estate Home Mortgages/Mortgage Rate

Question
Hi,
I am considering purchasing a house for 620K with 20% down. I went to my banker at Bank of America and she quoted me a rate of 3.626% on a 30 year loan with no points. Do you think it's a good rate? I heard on the radio that the rate for 30 year fix is 3.50. Any help would be appreciated!

Answer
David,

That sounds like a great rate considering your loan is what they consider "jumbo".  Often times people hear conventional rates and fail to recognize that generally after $400K they are in that category.  Do not just look at rates but consider the total cost to do the loan as well as a comparison to your current position.  

Hope that helps.

Best Regards,
