Mortgage rates floated higher in the New York Metro area this week.

Benchmark 30-year rate ticks up in New York Metro

According to Bankrate's national survey of large lenders, the average rate on the benchmark 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rate for the New York Metro area increased to 3.55%. While it was still less than the national average rate of 3.57%, the local rate was up 1 basis point from last week. A basis point is one-hundredth of 1 percentage point.

Mortgages in this week's survey had an average of 0.10 discount and origination points.

"With the 30-year fixed rising, it means that homebuyers and refinancers will find their borrowing costs have increased," says Holden Lewis, Bankrate's senior mortgage analyst.

The rise in the mortgage rate elevated 30-year fixed-rate monthly payments on a hypothetical $165,000 mortgage to $745.54, an uptick of $0.92 from last week.

No clear direction for other New York Metro mortgage types

Conversely, the average rate for 30-year jumbo mortgages fell this week, down 2 basis points to 3.50%. Jumbo mortgages are used for loan amounts above limits set by the Federal Housing Finance Agency. Those limits can range from $417,000 to $625,500, depending on the location.

The average rate for 15-year fixed-rate mortgages grew to 2.83%, climbing 1 basis point from last week. Monthly payments on a hypothetical $165,000, 15-year fixed-rate mortgage increased along with rates, climbing $0.79 to $1,126.02.

"Because the 15-year fixed is a popular mortgage for homeowners who want to refinance, the increase means that a refi is less lucrative than it would have been before the rate rise," Lewis says.

The benchmark 5/1 adjustable-rate mortgage rate 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 common type of variable-rate mortgage.

I have mastered some new elements from your web-site about pc's. Another thing I have always thought is that computers have become an item that each family must have for a lot of reasons. They provide convenient ways in which to organize the home, pay bills, go shopping, study, focus on music and perhaps watch tv shows. An innovative strategy to complete most of these tasks is with a laptop. These computers are mobile ones, small, effective and lightweight.

Thanks for your post. I also believe that laptop computers have become more and more popular these days, and now in many cases are the only kind of computer found in a household. This is due to the fact that at the same time that they're becoming more and more inexpensive, their processing power keeps growing to the point where they can be as robust as personal computers out of just a few years ago.

4. SEO is effective but very time consuming: To do SEO properly you need to vigilantly watch your backlinks, manually submit to directories, write and manually submit newsworthy press releases, write and manually submit and write excellent information articles, and meticulously optimize your web pages for keyword density. Advertising takes no time at all and someone else does the work for you.

Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are some of the popular social networking sites available. Facebook is a great way to advertise products and services. With a ‘like' feature, users can recommend a web page or link, which increases the chances of people investigating your site further. Be sure to utilise all possible Facebook tools such as posting a fan page for your business and include pictures, questions, information, and resources that your target audience would find useful. Twitter has a limited amount of text to use, so make sure that you customise your page to be unique with a catchy background and title. Also, hyperlink words back to your company website, which will create traffic and increase the possibility of being picked up by search engines such as Google. By using LinkedIn, you can link your company's website to the network and it will be shared with the professional community. You will have the ability to answer questions posted by your target audience which will give you expertise in the field.

Generally, the owner should contribute a lot in the graphics and layout of the site. Well, you may say that the graphic and web designers are creative enough to create the logo and design the page. Of course, they are. But, it is company and you will understand what suits the theme or motive of your company the most.

3. Search Engine Marketing only gets your name in front of people who are searching for it: Lots of people buy things or become interested in things through advertising. If people don't know about a product, they can't search for it. That being said, people who click through to your site via a search engine are well qualified customers.
