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...

    • Sunday I was too annoyed and busy to post reasons he was wrong, by Monday he was telling everyone bye. Lol Honestly I think that was the most outraged I've ever gotten about anything on this forum. Even more than someone saying Jake Delorme sucks, back in 04 lol Its kind of mind-boggling someone who can read and write was truely blaming the girl for being rape. 
    • NFL Network is showing the Carolina / Giants game from our 2015 season.  I'm just watching the tail end where Beckham scored on Norman and it showed Cam's "I got this" nod. Man, what a great drive.  In 2015, we simply played with more urgency, hunger, and the drive to be the best. Cam had the confidence because everyone was playing as hard as they could.   Going into 2017, if this team can get hungry again, they are going to be fun to watch!  The more I think about it, the dominance of that team wasn't some kind of magic, but rather in will.  They would not be denied. The good news is that they can find the motivation again.  Nothing special.  I know we're all in draft mode, but I'm feeling pretty excited for the season.  I think our team will come back motivated!
