Question by dr. feelgood: how can i take advantage of todays low mortgage rates???
i want to build or buy a house but havent found one or havent found a place to build one yet. i want to take advantage of these low rates right now. is there anyway i can start paying on a mortgage now and lock in my interest rate, dosage then when i find what i want i would have this low interest rate and already have paid some on it????? or is there a way i can get a say 200,000 mortgage, put the money in a cd, then when im ready i could take the money out, use it to pay for the house.

i know someone is going to say to just put howevermuch money the payment is going to be, and put it in savings then when im ready, i would have that savings for a bigger down payment, and that would offset the cost of having a higher interest.

well thats just too hard to do for me. its easy for me to make payments but real hard to put money in savings. any suggestions????

You can’t take advantage of today’s low mortgage rates without a piece of property…The problem is that the mortgage is a secured loan that uses the property as collateral…That’s why its interest rate is so much lower than personal/unsecured loans.
