Be Intentional With Your Mortgage-  Mortgage officers are always saying rates will go up,  buy now.  Well they saying is true, although no one knows exactly when rates will skyrocket.    Recently the Federal Reserve Chairman said they would raise rates by the end of 2015.  She was talking about raising the short term rates- 5 and 10 years rates that banks borrow from each other. People have been going crazy about this however.  Due to this volatility in the marketplace, if you have been thinking about buying, you may want to go ahead and take advantage of the rates now.  Remember, if rates go down, you can always refinance.  There is a difference in the amount of home you can afford between lower rates like today and higher rates.  Be intentional with your mortgage.  Think about what you want and where you want it.  What home and lifestyle do you want?  Once you know what you want, think about your path to achieving that.  For many, purchasing now might be a good choice to achieving that plan. Talk to our mortgage officers today for help determining what is best for your family. For Tulsa area mortgage needs, contact TTCU The Credit Union at 918-749-8828 or 

QUICK TIP-  Long Term vs Short Term Investment Strategies- If you want to live in a property long term, consider a 15 year note.  You have less money to work with monthly but pay off your mortgage faster.  It can also help you later on to put money toward kids college or retirement because you don't have a mortgage.  If you don't plan on being in the property long term, you will likely want to pay less per month. and a 30 year mortgage might be a better choice.   Again, be intentional and think about what you want to accomplish.
