Falling mortgage rates are attracting would-be house buyers.

"Had you said a year ago that interest rates would be so low today, no one would have thought you would," said Bill Russell, Senior VP President/Market Leader for Fargo-based State Bank & Trust. Throughout the country, mortgage rates have fallen by half a point since this summers and are close to their low for four years.

Interest rates were also low at the beginning of this year before recovering in the course of the spring. What's been causing interest rates to fall lately? Part of the explanation is that the Federal Reserve, the nation's Federal Reserve, on Tuesday said that the key interest or interest rates that bankers charged each other for accommodation credit would be cut from 1 per cent to 0.25 per cent.

Decreasing recovered capital rates were expected and taken into account in actual mortgage rates, Russell said. Even more importantly, at the end of last months the Federal Reserve said it wanted to lower mortgage rates by purchasing billion of US dollar mortgage-backed bonds. Interest rates fell strongly after the herald. Mortgage rates are influenced by many different variables, many of which include price increases and investors' demands for mortgage-backed assets.

Range residents began to pay attention to lower rates even before Tuesday, metropolitan housing officials say. "Lower prices are getting some folks (potential buyers) off the fence," said Scott Breidenbach of Fargo's Park Co. Peggy Palmes of TRN Abstract and Title, which has Fargo and Moorhead office, said interest in mortgage funding has increased locally this past few months.

As a general principle, interest rates must drop by 1% in order to warrant funding. A further general principle is that funding makes financial business sense if you are planning to remain in-house and can collect the funding costs within 12 to 36 month. Prior to the Tuesday interest reduction, the federal mortgage market median for a 30 fixed interest mortgage was around 5.5 per cent, according to the Bankrate.com website, which monitors mortgage rates.

With a $150,000 5.5 per cent 5.5 per cent $150,000 5.5 per cent 5.5 per cent fixed interest mortgage, the interest paid per annum is $851.68, $96.42 less per annum and $1,157.04 less per annum than with a 6.5 per cent interest on the same mortgage this year. Mortgage loans are generally available in Fargo-Moorhead for less than the nationwide averages, said Blaise Johnson, principal of credit for Fargo-based Gate City Federal.

The calculation of mortgage rates can be difficult because many different things are at stake, among them charges, say the banker. However, lower prices will help draw shoppers, he said.
