Several key mortgage rates were down in the Dallas area this week.

Key 30-year rate ticks down in Dallas

According to Bankrate's national survey of large lenders, the average rate on the benchmark 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rate for the Dallas area dropped to 4.20 percent. While the local rate was down 2 basis points from last week, it was still above the national average rate of 4.13 percent. A basis point is one-hundredth of 1 percentage point.

In this week's survey, the mortgages had an average of 0.47 discount and origination points.

"The drop in the 30-year fixed will benefit those who waited to lock on a rate, as their gamble paid off," says Holden Lewis, Bankrate's senior mortgage analyst.

Monthly payments on a hypothetical $165,000 mortgage fell to $806.88, down $1.92 from last week, corresponding with the dip in mortgage rates.

Other Dallas mortgage types mixed

The average rate for 30-year jumbo mortgages fell this week, down 3 basis points to 4.13 percent. Jumbo mortgages are used for loan amounts above limits set by the Federal Housing Finance Agency; for the Dallas area, that limit is $424,100.

The average rate for 15-year fixed-rate mortgages declined to 3.34 percent, down 13 basis points from last week. Monthly payments on a hypothetical $165,000, 15-year fixed-rate mortgage followed rates trending down, tapering off $10.44 to $1,166.63.

"The 15-year fixed is a popular mortgage for homeowners who want to refinance. With this fall in the 15-year fixed, a refinance will be more attractive to some homeowners," Lewis says.

The benchmark 5/1 adjustable-rate mortgage rate climbed 2 points this week, increasing to 3.55 percent. 5/1 adjustable-rate mortgages allow property owners to pay a fixed rate for the first 5 years, and the rate adjusts once per year every year after. They are the most popular variety of variable-rate mortgage.

Methodology: The "Bankrate.com National Average," or "national survey of large lenders," is conducted weekly. To conduct the National Average survey, Bankrate obtains rate information from the 10 largest banks and thrifts in 10 large U.S. markets. In the Bankrate.com national survey, our Market Analysis team gathers rates and/or yields on banking deposits, loans and mortgages. We've conducted this survey in the same manner for more than 30 years, and because it's consistently done the way it is, it gives an accurate national apples-to-apples comparison.

I do not know if it's just me or if perhaps everyone
else experiencing problems with your site. It seems
like some of the text in your content are running off the
screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if
this is happening to them as well? This may be a issue with my internet browser because I've had this happen before.

It is relatively easy to foreclose on property in the state of Texas. The entire process can take about three months and can be accomplished either in or out of court.

Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Spending some time and actual effort to create a great article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and don't manage to get nearly anything done.|
