The Growth of the Washington Real Estate Market

The real estate market in the State of Washington has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years. On a statewide level, Washington has a median home value of approximately $562,290 as of January 2024.

The statewide median doesn’t tell the full story about how Washington State has grown in terms of real estate. Certain areas within Seattle have experienced growth; some markets, such as Seattle and Bellevue are now among the more desirable markets in the country.

The appeal of Washington is clear to nearly everyone who has visited the state. Washington has some gorgeous sites, including Mount Rainier, Mount St. Helens, and Olympic National Park. Washington is home to many big companies that offer excellent employment opportunities to professionals, such as Microsoft, Amazon, and Google. The WA State housing market has become a top spot for potential buyers. Now is a great time to consider buying a home in the region.

Understanding Your Quote and Percentage Rate

Your rate quote is based on a variety of factors (including your credit score, down payment, and purchase price) and delivers the most accurate results possible based on your inputs.

  • Detailed costs breakdown: Click on the “view” tab under “details” to see an itemized list of all estimated costs.
  • Rate & APR: Your rate is the anticipated interest rate. The APR is the total cost of your loan, expressed as an annual percentage rate.
  • Origination charges: Sammamish Mortgage doesn’t charge industry-standard lenders fees, so the amount for “origination fee” will typically be zero.
  • Discount points: You can buy “points” by paying an amount for each point equal to 1% of the purchase price, and lower your interest rate by up to a quarter of a percent for each point purchased.
  • Monthly mortgage payment: This includes the principal and interest included in your base monthly payment.
  • Estimated third-party charges: This includes the wide range of fees included in your closing costs.
  • Closing costs: The closing cost total listed includes everything except prepaid items such as property taxes, homeowner’s insurance, and daily interest.
  • Private mortgage insurance premiums: PMI is required on loan to value (LTV) ratios over 80% (except on VA loans). We offer reduced PMI options with as little as 3% down.
  • Rate locks: We can lock your rate from 30 up to 180 days.

Rates Depend on Multiple Factors

Sammamish Mortgage makes use of an innovative software platform that provides you with an instant rate quote. The system does this by comparing multiple lenders and investors from across the US, providing real-time results. All you need to do to get your rate quote is to input a few pieces of information, and within seconds, you’ll receive an accurate breakdown of the interest rates and costs available for you. You won’t have to supply any personal information to obtain this data, either. The mortgage experts at Sammamish Mortgage always work to ensure that the best interests of our clients are always met.

Loan Purpose

The term “loan purpose” is used in the mortgage industry in the US to describe the reason why an applicant is looking to apply for a loan. The lender will use the purpose of the loan to make decisions on the risk level of the borrower. The loan purpose could also affect the interest rate offered by the lender. The most common examples include purchase, rate/term refinance (no cash-out refinance) and cash-out refinance.

Down Payment

The down payment refers to the equity amount that the buyer puts towards the purchase price of a home. For instance, a home being purchased for $500,000 with a $100,000 down payment means the buyer will have 20% equity in the new home. In general a larger down payment results in better rates and closing costs for your loan. Down payments below 20% usually require some form of mortgage insurance which would be an added cost to you. The exception is for VA financing.

Loan Amount

This term refers to the amount that the borrower must pay back to the lender as stipulated in the loan contract. The loan amount is one of the main factors in determining what rate and loan program you’ll be eligible for. For the most common loan programs such as conforming or FHA financing there are loan limits. Anything above those limits results in a borrower being ineligible for that program and subject to different rates and fees. In general VA loans have the best terms followed by conforming loans and select jumbo loans for really qualified borrowers or high net worth clients.

Credit Score

A credit score is a numerical figure that expresses the creditworthiness of a consumer. A higher credit score is better when it comes to taking out a loan, as it reduces the lender’s risk when loaning out funds. A credit score is affected by repayment history, number and age of open accounts, total debt levels, and credit utilization. Credit is a key deciding factor in determining what rates and costs you’re eligible for. High credit scores over 740 will get you the best rates available. Adjustments to the terms available for most loan programs occur in 20 point increments. For example the second best credit score range would be 720-739, then 700-719 and so on.  Once your scores drop below 640 the programs you will qualify for will be severely limited.

Purchase Price

The purchase price refers to the price that a buyer pays for a property.

Property Type

Property type refers to the characteristics and configuration of a dwelling. For instance, detached homes, townhomes, and condos are all examples of different property types. Single Family Home will have the best terms when compared to other property types. Provided you put down more than 25% condos will be second best followed by multi-family 1-4 units. Properties like co-ops and manufactured homes will usually have higher rates and it will be more difficult to find lenders that will accept those property types.

Occupancy

Occupancy refers to the status of the people living in a home. For example, a home may be occupied by the owners, or by tenants who pay the owner rent in exchange for the right to live in the home. Owner Occupied homes will have the best rates followed by second homes (vacation homes that are not rented) and investment properties which include any property that does not fit the classification of a primary residence or second home. This includes rental properties, homes a family member occupies for free or a speculative property that is vacant.

Loan Program

A loan program or loan type refers to the type of loan being taken out to finance the purchase of a property. In the US, common mortgage loan programs include fixed-rate mortgages, variable-rate mortgages, conforming loans, FHA loans, and VA loans. Fixed-rate loans can come with different terms such as a 30 year fixed, 20 year or 15 year fixed. ARM’s or adjustable rate mortgages are usually fixed for a specified period of time and then adjust annually after the initial fixed rate period.

I shopped around and found Sammamish to offer great rates with complete transparency. Throughout the process, I only spoke to two people (Nick and Tonya), which kept communication simple. Nick and Tonya were easy to reach and answered my questions clearly and enthusiastically. The best part of working with Sammamish was their speed. They were super fast, ready to close quickly. It was an excellent experience all around.

My husband and I recently purchased our first property by using Sammamish Mortgage. They provided us the best rate among other lenders with no junk fee. They are also really professional and responsive throughout the whole process. Highly recommended.

This is my first time getting the mortgage, and Sammamish Mortgage have been very helpful and responsive to all my inquiries and concerns. The mortgage is quite complicated and stressful process, but they help to guide us through the complicated process, and they also provide us way to save money on the mortgage.

Great, appreciated the transparency in pricing. Mark Smith was very helpful in explaining the process and preparing numbers for us for a few scenarios we wanted to consider. Once we were in escrow, it was a little hard to get a hold of the team to ask questions, but we felt reassured with the frequent updates.

I have used Sammamish Mortage once before my most recent experience, and both times have been wonderful. Ryan and Tonya were quick to respond to any questions I had, and the process itself couldn't have gone smoother. I will absolutely use these folks again.
