Question: I am planning to purchase a Cirrus SR 20 next month for $290k. I’m planning to put 40% down so I can borrow less. What type of interest rates should I expect?
Answer: I certainly understand your desire to borrow less, sometimes however, when you borrow less it can cost you more in rate. For example, when borrowing less than $150k most lenders have increased interest rates to make up for lesser amounts being borrowed. However, in this case, assuming a $290k purchase amount and 60% financed, borrowing more than the $174k loan your seeking won’t get you better options. We are seeing rates as low as 3.75%.
