Act Now: Historic Low Interest Rates and Treasury Yields Combined with Lower Down Payments Create Unprecedented Buying Opportunity

The stars are aligning for a one-of-a-kind opportunity to purchase a brand-new luxury condominium at Merrick Manor and take advantage of historic low interest rates and Treasury yields.

Last week’s decision by the Federal Reserve’s to reduce interest rates by a half-percentage point to a target range of 1% to 1.25% can result in savings of as much as $10,000 per year in post-tax interest payments. Additionally, the 10-year Treasury yield – a critical metric used to determine 30-year fixed mortgage rates – just plunged to an all-time low of 0.318%. These shifts translate into substantial interest rate bargains for adjustable and fixed-rate mortgages.

These historic interest rate lows will not last forever. The same can be said for Merrick Manor’s limited offering of available residences.

Beyond interest rates, a new report from NerdWallet dispels the misconception that buyers must have enough money set aside to cover a 20% downpayment and realize the dream of homeownership. However, some lenders frequently approve mortgages with as little as 3% down. First-time homebuyers can obtain various forms of downpayment assistance in the form of grants or loans to cover some of all of downpayment expenses.

Merrick Manor is the only brand-new, move-in ready condominium offering in Coral Gables. Located at 301 Altara Avenue, the 10-story, 227-residence Merrick Manor’s pet-friendly amenities and lifestyle truly cannot be beat. Merrick Manor also has a Zillow Walk Score of 77, making it “very walkable.”
