Financial market participants have returned to the workplace after the day off yesterday. It’s a bit of a mix right now with stocks mostly lower and Treasury yields up slightly.

Mortgage rates have been on a bit of an increase the past several weeks, with the average rate on a 30-year fixed rate mortgage moving up forty-three basis points from the start of the year, putting it at 4.38%.

There is no doubt that this increase is significant. It’s a big change from the mortgage rate environment last year, where rates remained in a very tight range throughout the year.

Now, with inflation ticking up and the Federal Reserve getting ready to continue their gradual adjustments to the federal funds rate, we’re seeing this very steady upward swing in rates.

What would be the total monthly mortgage on a new 4 bedroom home in the Poconos?

The home building company advertises a $230,000 home w/ $1,190 monthly mortgage for principle & interest only. The down payment requested is $8,047. What should I expect my monthly mortgage to be? Thank You!


Do you mean the $1190 is before or after the down payment?

Scenario A. $230,000 mortgage @1190/mo = interest rate of 4.68%

Scenario B $230,000 - $8047 = $221,953
$221,953 mortgage @ 4.68% = $1148.47/mo mortgage payment.
