Mortgages & move to SFBay

May 12, 2018 8 Comments

I am moving to a new job in the SF Bay Area around Santa Clara, as part of the relocation a few banks contacted me branding themselves as relocation mortgage specialists- is it that much of a discount or special rates that they can offer? I was thinking of renting for a while but didn’t want to lose out on the discounted rates if that’s a real thing, maybe for a starter home . The banks were Chase, Quicken and Premia home loans

Has anybody used these services ?

  • No. Just a gimmick, do not fall for this trap. I would suggest first rent for a year or so, and then think about buying.

      If you have the money for a down payment (and want to buy a home), I’d suggest start looking ASAP. A year from now houses could be 6% more at least

      6 is conservative. My house has gone up 20% in the last 6 months!

    Rent for a while to determine what area you want to live in.

    Chase is horrible for rates. US Bank is pretty sweet - I just got a 3.6% 10 year ARM
