**The Best Loans Right NOW**

(based upon "real people credit", not absolutely perfect credit)

**Conforming Rates**

**Thirty Year Fixed Rate Loans**

**4.875%** 30 Year fixed rate loan, with only one point (that's a total discount and origination) to the consumer and NO PREPAYMENT PENALTIES!. Assuming a $400,000 loan, Payment $2117, APR 5.003! This is a thirty year fixed rate loan. The payment and interest rate will stay the same on this loan until it is paid off! 30 year fixed rate loans as low as 4.375 percent (But you'd have to be crazy to pay that many points!)

**5/1 Hybrid ARM Rates**

5/1 ARMs are only starting to fall to approximately the same as a 30 year fixed. Given that, there is no reason to prefer them.

**Super-Conforming Rates**

($417,001 to $546,250 in San Diego)

**5.375%** 30 Year fixed rate loan, with one point (total discount and origination) to the consumer and NO PREPAYMENT PENALTIES!. Assuming a $500,000 loan, Payment $2800, APR 5.506! This is a thirty year fixed rate loan. The payment and interest rate will stay the same on this loan until it is paid off! 30 year fixed rate loans as low as 4.625 percent (But you'd have to be crazy to pay that many points!)

**VA Rates**

Assuming a $400,000 loan, Payment $2147, APR 5.129! This is a thirty year fixed rate loan. The payment and interest rate will stay the same on this loan until it is paid off! 30 year fixed rate VA loans as low as 4.5 percent (But you'd have to be crazy to pay that many points!)

**NONCONFORMING ("JUMBO") RATES**

These numbers assume a 70% loan to value ratio, not 80.

**Thirty Year Fixed Rate Loans**

**6.375%** "Jumbo" 30 Year fixed rate loan, with ONE point total discount and origination, and NO PREPAYMENT PENALTIES!. Assuming a $700,000 loan, Payment $4367, APR 6.507! This is a thirty year fixed rate loan. The payment and interest rate will stay the same on this loan until it is paid off! Jumbo 30 year fixed rate loans as low as 5.125 percent (But you'd have to be crazy to pay that many points!)

**5/1 Hybrid ARM Rates**

**5.00%** "Jumbo" 5/1 ARM, with one point total discount and origination, and NO PREPAYMENT PENALTIES!. Assuming a $700,000 loan, Payment $3758, APR 5.122! This is a fully amortized thirty year loan with the interest rate fixed for five years. 5/1 Jumbo ARMs as low as 4.00 percent (But you'd have to be crazy to pay that many points!)

All rates above are intended for San Diego County today, and include a 30 day lock. Loan prices will vary every day. Loan pricing in the rest of California will be similar. Conforming loan pricing will be similar between about $150,000 and the conforming limit in your area. Nonconforming loan pricing will be similar from the conforming limit up to about $1 million dollars in loan amount.

10 year interest only payments available on 30 year fixed rate loans!

Great Rates on super-jumbo loans also available!

Zero closing costs and zero points loans also available!

Portfolio lenders! Need something special most lenders can't do? Portfolio lenders may be the key! I have portfolio lenders!

Yes, I still have low to zero down payment and some stated income programs available!

These are actual retail rates at actual costs available to real people with average credit scores! I always guarantee the loan type, rate, and total cost as soon as I have enough information from you to lock the loan (subject to underwriting approval of the loan). I pay any difference, not you. If your loan provider doesn't do this, you need a new loan provider!

All of the above loans are on approved credit, not all borrowers will qualify, based upon an 80% loan to value and a median credit score on a full documentation loan. Rates subject to change until rate lock.

Interest only, stated income, bad credit and other options also available. If you need a mortgage, chances are I can do it faster and on better terms than you'll actually get from anyone else in the business.

Designing transactions for low to zero down payment a specialty

Please ask me about first time buyer programs, including the Mortgage Credit Certificate, which gives you a tax credit for mortgage interest, and can be combined with any of the above loans!

I should mention that there is a very shallow "slope" to the rate/cost tradeoff for 30 year fixed rate jumbo loans. Two points total seems to be about as low as anyone is offering on anything for a reasonable rate. The only "no points" rates I can find are around ten percent.

**7.00%** "Jumbo" 30 Year fixed rate loan, with 2.2 points total discount and origination, and NO PREPAYMENT PENALTIES!. Assuming a $700,000 loan, Payment $4657, APR 7.259!

**6.25%** "Jumbo" 5/1 ARM, with one point total discount and origination, and NO PREPAYMENT PENALTIES!. Assuming a $700,000 loan, Payment $4310, APR 6.380!
