Or is it just me? Is anyone else aware of the fact that mortgage interest rates increased today with just about every lender out there by about .375% - .5% or is it just me?...
I had a gentleman call in today to inquire about financing a portion of a Co-Op that he is purchasing in New York, NY. He's looking at a 30 year term and is looking for a 5.375% (on a Co-Op... Ha!). I told him no, I cannot get that rate today. He told me that the interest rate is the most important thing and that if I can get him a 5.375% rate today that he will go with me.
I sent him an email with 3 options attached, a 30 year (not even close to what he wants), a 20 year (Closer), and a 15 year (closest). He emailed me back saying that my rates are not even close to being the lowest... He also asked me to negotiate to get him a lower rate because he thinks that he should be entitled to what someone quoted him 2 weeks ago...
Sorry, but I am not going to quote rates that don't exist and then deal with the headaches that are sure to follow when the truth comes out.
