Tacoma is the Newest Hot Market

Whatever its reputation may have been in the past, the city of Tacoma has become the latest hot market in the State of Washington. While the market has cooled down in places like Seattle and Bellevue, things have really taken off southward in the Tacoma area. Currently, the median home value in Tacoma is about $473,206, but that figure represents a 22% increase from previous levels as recently as last year.

The Tacoma market has come a long way. Tacoma is presently classified as a very hot market, and so buyers should be prepared for stiff competition. Part of the reason for Tacoma’s appeal is its proximity to Seattle. Tacoma residents can use the freeway to reach downtown Seattle by either car or transit in under an hour. And given Tacoma’s relative affordability, we can see why this city has become attractive to those who work in the Seattle area.

Aside from affordability and proximity to Seattle, however, Tacoma has other things that can make it a desirable place to live. Tacoma has quite a few pleasant neighborhoods, including Hilltop, Fern Hill, Excelsior, Hillsdale, Salishan, and others. What’s more, there are several attractive parks, such as Wapato Park and Wright Park, and also features a top-rated zoo, Point Defiance. If you relocate to Tacoma, there will be no shortage of fun things to do.

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 lender 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.

Why Sammamish?

One of the big advantages of applying for mortgage rate quotes and preapproval through Sammamish Mortgage is that we charge none of the traditional lender fees added by mortgage brokers.

We also pay our Loan Officers a salary instead of a commission based on the loan amount, so they are motivated to help you find the best home loan, not just sell you the biggest loan.

If you are ready to move forward, you can view rates, obtain a customized quote using our Instant Rate Quote tool, or apply for preapproval directly from our website.

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.

Nick from Samamish mortgage gave us the best rate without any of the negotiation required by other lenders. It was a pleasure working with Jana as they promptly addressed issues ensuring we closed on time! Would highly recommend this company to others.

Both Steven and Jana were extremely professional in their interactions with me and worked hard to make sure that we closed on time. Unlike other lenders, Sammamish offered me the lowest rate that they could right out of the gate without a lot of back and forth. The rate was low enough that another lender questioned how they could even offer it! The no BS way that Sammamish goes about lending is much to my liking. I will be using them again in the future.
