Interest rates on home loans were expected to increase this spring, but it appears those rates will likely remain stable following the Federal Open Market Committee’s decision Wednesday to hold the line on interest rates.
That’s good news for potential homebuyers. On a $100,000 loan at an interest rate of 4.5 percent, the homeowner would have monthly payments – without taxes and insurance – of $506.69. If interest rates rose from 4.5 percent to 4.75 percent, those monthly payments – without taxes and insurance – would rise to $521.65.
