Almost got cold feet yesterday... jeez... The biggest purchase I have ever made... Is 3.25% fixed interest rate on 30 year mortgage a good deal?

Off 51 in mint hill, not far off Lebanon rd. House cost $250k. Houses across the street cost $500k and up and houses on next street cost $700k and up so it's pretty good area. My house is 3,000 sqft ranch.

$83 a sq ft. Is that the norm out there? I'm at 4.2% and thought it was super low then

3.25% is the ideal rate right now for a 30 fixed. I was at 6.25 and streamline refinanced to a 4.125. Its the best im gonna get right now.

In the grand scheme that is an absurdly good deal.

Congratulations on going through with it ARSEN, I doubt you will regret it.

Sounds like you got a great deal on your home and your loan.

I was visiting family in Mint Hill just a few weeks ago. It has grown a lot, but is still a very nice area.

Hope you enjoy it.

No, average on my street is $115 per sqft (ranges from $105 to $125)... My building company screwed up and sold me way to low... They actually tried to piss us off so we walk because someone offered $290k for our house...
