Yes, it's possible to get a 4.8% mortgage today — here's how
- A top homebuilder executive shared advice for getting a lower mortgage rate right now.
- Taylor Morrison's Tawn Kelley suggested borrowing directly from a builder's mortgage arm.
- Kelley also warned buyers to budget for rate increases over the course of the loan.
High mortgage rates have deterred many would-be homebuyers from purchasing a property over the last year.
In September, according to the National Association of Realtors, the sales of existing homes in the US declined 15.4% from a year ago — a sign that buyers are continuing to balk at the high cost of homeownership.
But here may be a glimmer of hope: People may have more luck securing a lower mortgage rate if they buy a new-construction home. Mortgage industry veteran Tawn Kelley, the president of financial services at homebuilder Taylor Morrison, told Insider's Alex Nicoll that it's possible to secure a rate as low as 4.8% when buying a new home .
The typical rate right now is above 7% , according to Freddie Mac.
Kelley's tips include seriously considering taking out a mortgage with the builder of the new home and asking for every possible incentive.
Many builders can provide lower interest rates or financing assistance, she said. While that may sound too good to be true, Kelley advises buyers not to automatically dismiss their homebuilder's mortgage offerings as a marketing ploy.
At the end of the day, she added, builders just want to sell more houses. That's how they make the most profit. If offering a favorable mortgage helps them do that, don't second-guess the motivation.
"Finance sells homes, and a house doesn't become a home unless we have the ability to get that customer to the closing table, and they can qualify and confidently make their mortgage payments," Kelley said.
Kelley also suggested that buyers negotiate with builders for every available incentive, as they could add up to substantial savings. Builder incentives include rate buydowns, mortgage rate locks, and forward commitments. (Read more about these incentives and how to get them in Nicoll's story .)
Taylor Morrison has been able to help customers lower their rates from around 8% to 4.875%, Kelley said, reducing the total monthly payment by a third.
However, she warned that some financial incentives can increase over the course of the loan, including temporary rate buydowns.
Failing to budget or plan accordingly could put homebuyers at risk of experiencing problems that cropped up during the 2008 housing crisis , when many people who took out adjustable-rate mortgages failed to account for their monthly costs increasing as interest rates rose.

Building for the future: The enterprise generative AI application lifecycle with Azure AI
By Gregory Buehrer Corporate Vice President, Chief Technology Officer of Azure Machine Learning
Posted on November 6, 2023 7 min read
In our previous blog , we explored the emerging practice of large language model operations (LLMOps) and the nuances that set it apart from traditional machine learning operations (MLOps) . We discussed the challenges of scaling large language model-powered applications and how Microsoft Azure AI uniquely helps organizations manage this complexity. We touched on the importance of considering the development journey as an iterative process to achieve a quality application.
Microsoft Azure AI
Drive business results and improve customer experiences
In this blog, we’ll explore these concepts in more detail. The enterprise development process requires collaboration, diligent evaluation, risk management, and scaled deployment. By providing a robust suite of capabilities supporting these challenges, Azure AI affords a clear and efficient path to generating value in your products for your customers.
Enterprise LLM Lifecycle
Ideating and exploring loop
The first loop typically involves a single developer searching for a model catalog for large language models (LLMs) that align with their specific business requirements. Working with a subset of data and prompts, the developer will try to understand the capabilities and limitations of each model with prototyping and evaluation. Developers usually explore altering prompts to the models, different chunking sizes and vectoring indexing methods, and basic interactions while trying to validate or refute business hypotheses. For instance, in a customer support scenario, they might input sample customer queries to see if the model generates appropriate and helpful responses. They can validate this first by typing in examples, but quickly move to bulk testing with files and automated metrics.
Explore Azure OpenAI Service chevron_right
Beyond Azure OpenAI Service, Azure AI offers a comprehensive model catalog , which empowers users to discover, customize, evaluate, and deploy foundation models from leading providers such as Hugging Face, Meta, and OpenAI. This helps developers find and select optimal foundation models for their specific use case. Developers can quickly test and evaluate models using their own data to see how the pre-trained model would perform for their desired scenarios.
Building and augmenting loop
Once a developer discovers and evaluates the core capabilities of their preferred LLM, they advance to the next loop which focuses on guiding and enhancing the LLM to better meet their specific needs. Traditionally, a base model is trained with point-in-time data. However, often the scenario requires either enterprise-local data, real-time data, or more fundamental alterations.
For reasoning on enterprise data, Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG) is preferred, which injects information from internal data sources into the prompt based on the specific user request. Common sources are document search systems, structured databases, and non-SQL stores. With RAG, a developer can “ ground ” their solution using the capabilities of their LLMs to process and generate responses based on this injected data. This helps developers achieve customized solutions while maintaining relevance and optimizing costs. RAG also facilitates continuous data updates without the need for fine-tuning as the data comes from other sources.
During this loop, the developer may find cases where the output accuracy doesn’t meet desired thresholds. Another method to alter the outcome of an LLM is fine-tuning . Fine-tuning helps most when the nature of the system needs to be altered. Generally, the LLM will answer any prompt in a similar tone and format. But for example, if the use case requires code output, JSON, or any such modification, there may be a consistent change or restriction in the output, where fine-tuning can be employed to better align the system’s responses with the specific requirements of the task at hand. By adjusting the parameters of the LLM during fine-tuning, the developer can significantly improve the output accuracy and relevance, making the system more useful and efficient for the intended use case.
It is also feasible to combine prompt engineering, RAG augmentation, and a fine-tuned LLM. Since fine-tuning necessitates additional data, most users initiate with prompt engineering and modifications to data retrieval before proceeding to fine-tune the model.
Most importantly, continuous evaluation is an essential element of this loop. During this phase, developers assess the quality and overall groundedness of their LLMs. The end goal is to facilitate safe, responsible, and data-driven insights to inform decision-making while ensuring the AI solutions are primed for production.
Learn More Azure AI prompt flow chevron_right
Azure AI prompt flow is a pivotal component in this loop. Prompt flow helps teams streamline the development and evaluation of LLM applications by providing tools for systematic experimentation and a rich array of built-in templates and metrics. This ensures a structured and informed approach to LLM refinement. Developers can also effortlessly integrate with frameworks like LangChain or Semantic Kernel , tailoring their LLM flows based on their business requirements. The addition of reusable Python tools enhances data processing capabilities, while simplified and secure connections to APIs and external data sources afford flexible augmentation of the solution. Developers can also use multiple LLMs as part of their workflow, applied dynamically or conditionally to work on specific tasks and manage costs.
With Azure AI, evaluating the effectiveness of different development approaches becomes straightforward. Developers can easily craft and compare the performance of prompt variants against sample data, using insightful metrics such as groundedness, fluency, and coherence. In essence, throughout this loop, prompt flow is the linchpin, bridging the gap between innovative ideas and tangible AI solutions.
The third loop captures the transition of LLMs from development to production. This loop primarily involves deployment, monitoring, incorporating content safety systems, and integrating with CI/CD (continuous integration and continuous deployment) processes. This stage of the process is often managed by production engineers who have existing processes for application deployment. Central to this stage is collaboration, facilitating a smooth handoff of assets between application developers and data scientists building on the LLMs, and production engineers tasked with deploying them.
Deployment allows for a seamless transfer of LLMs and prompt flows to endpoints for inference without the need for a complex infrastructure setup. Monitoring helps teams track and optimize their LLM application’s safety and quality in production. Content safety systems help detect and mitigate misuse and unwanted content, both on the ingress and egress of the application. Combined, these systems fortify the application against potential risks, improving alignment with risk, governance, and compliance standards.
Unlike traditional machine learning models that might classify content, LLMs fundamentally generate content. This content often powers end-user-facing experiences like chatbots, with the integration often falling on developers who may not have experience managing probabilistic models. LLM-based applications often incorporate agents and plugins to enhance the capabilities of models to trigger some actions, which could also amplify the risk. These factors, combined with the inherent variability of LLM outputs, show the importance of risk management in LLMOps is critical.
Explore Azure AI Content Safety chevron_right
Azure AI prompt flow ensures a smooth deployment process to managed online endpoints in Azure Machine Learning. Because prompt flows are well-defined files that adhere to published schemas, they are easily incorporated into existing productization pipelines. Upon deployment, Azure Machine Learning invokes the model data collector , which autonomously gathers production data. That way, monitoring capabilities in Azure AI can provide a granular understanding of resource utilization, ensuring optimal performance and cost-effectiveness through token usage and cost monitoring. More importantly, customers can monitor their generative AI applications for quality and safety in production, using scheduled drift detection using either built-in or customer-defined metrics. Developers can also use Azure AI Content Safety to detect and mitigate harmful content or use the built-in content safety filters provided with Azure OpenAI Service models. Together, these systems provide greater control, quality, and transparency, delivering AI solutions that are safer, more efficient, and more easily meet the organization’s compliance standards.
Azure AI also helps to foster closer collaboration among diverse roles by facilitating the seamless sharing of assets like models, prompts, data, and experiment results using registries . Assets crafted in one workspace can be effortlessly discovered in another, ensuring a fluid handoff of LLMs and prompts. This not only enables a smoother development process but also preserves the lineage across both development and production environments. This integrated approach ensures that LLM applications are not only effective and insightful but also deeply ingrained within the business fabric, delivering unmatched value.
The final loop in the Enterprise Lifecycle LLM process lays down a structured framework for ongoing governance, management, and security. AI governance can help organizations accelerate their AI adoption and innovation by providing clear and consistent guidelines, processes, and standards for their AI projects.
Explore Responsible AI practices chevron_right
Azure AI provides built-in AI governance capabilities for privacy, security, compliance, and responsible AI , as well as extensive connectors and integrations to simplify AI governance across your data estate. For example, administrators can set policies to allow or enforce specific security configurations , such as whether your Azure Machine Learning workspace uses a private endpoint. Or, organizations can integrate Azure Machine Learning workspaces with Microsoft Purview to publish metadata on AI assets automatically to the Purview Data Map for easier lineage tracking. This helps risk and compliance professionals understand what data is used to train AI models, how base models are fine-tuned or extended, and where models are used across different production applications. This information is crucial for supporting responsible AI practices and providing evidence for compliance reports and audits.
Whether building generative AI applications with open-source models, Azure’s managed OpenAI models, or your own pre-trained custom models, Azure AI facilitates safe, secure, and reliable AI solutions with greater ease with purpose-built, scalable infrastructure.
Explore the harmonized journey of LLMOps at Microsoft Ignite
As organizations delve deeper into LLMOps to streamline processes, one truth becomes abundantly clear: the journey is multifaceted and requires a diverse range of skills. While tools and technologies like Azure AI prompt flow play a crucial role, the human element—and diverse expertise—is indispensable. It’s the harmonious collaboration of cross-functional teams that creates real magic. Together, they ensure the transformation of a promising idea into a proof of concept and then a game-changing LLM application.

FAFSA to be overhauled, making it easier for students to apply for financial aid
NPR's Ayesha Rascoe talks with Rachel Burns, author of a new report assessing what changes to the Free Application for Federal Aid could mean for students in the 2024-25 academic year.
AYESHA RASCOE, HOST:
Applying to college is one thing. Applying for financial aid is a whole other thing. For years, there were complaints about the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, which had more than 100 questions. Marie Kirima (ph) is a freshman at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs and recently filled out FAFSA for the first time.
MARIE KIRIMA: Finding, like, the specific things that you needed to apply for it without being taught what those things are in class or in school was pretty hard for me.
RASCOE: In 2020, Congress passed the FAFSA Simplification Act with the goal of streamlining the form and expanding financial aid. The revisions will be finalized later this year. The overhaul will make a difference, benefiting an estimated 220,000 more students. That's according to a new report from the State Higher Education Executive Officers Association. Rachel Burns wrote the report. She's a senior policy analyst with the association and joins us now. Welcome, and thank you for being here.
RACHEL BURNS: Thank you so much. I'm glad to be here.
RASCOE: FAFSA can be really overwhelming, especially for a kid straight out of high school. Is it just that it's less questions, or are the questions less complicated?
BURNS: So it's essentially the same questions. It's just that now, instead of a student having to fill out all of the financial questions, if they opt in to allowing the data to come directly from the Internal Revenue Service, all of those questions will be automatically filled in for them, and they won't have to go in and input their own or their parents' financial information.
RASCOE: OK. And what about the amount of aid individual students could get? Are you predicting that will change? Will they get more or less on average?
BURNS: On average, students will be eligible for more financial aid. The thresholds below which students needed to fall in terms of adjusted gross income or assets or allowances - those have all increased, so a larger number of students will be below those thresholds and therefore eligible. And every year, the Pell Grant increases, and the same thing is happening this year.
RASCOE: Will there be any students who will have a tougher time getting federal aid because of these changes?
BURNS: Unfortunately, yes. There are a specific group of students who will likely see some negative impacts from this change. The first one is students who have another family member that's in college. So under the previous formula, the parent contribution to the expected out-of-pocket cost accounted for the fact that a family had more than one family member in college. That portion of the calculation is going away. So now there's no difference. If there's two families with - everything is exactly the same except one family has one in college and one family has two, those students will have the exact same expected out-of-pocket costs, so it's no longer accounting for there being more than one student in college.
RASCOE: And so tell me about the second group.
BURNS: So the second group is students whose families had small businesses or family farms - less than a hundred employees - did not have to report the assets of the family farm or the business on their FAFSA. And that small business, family farm exclusion is going away, and that's going to be a really significant change for a lot of students.
RASCOE: And so I wanted to ask you about some entirely new classes of people that will be able to take advantage of using the FAFSA - people with criminal convictions and some people with drug convictions. Is that correct?
BURNS: That is correct. That's one of the - in our eyes, one of the most exciting changes about the new FAFSA. It is lifting prohibitions for students with prior drug convictions and felonies. It's lifting prohibitions for students who have not registered for the Selective Service. And it restores Pell eligibility for incarcerated students - so not just formerly convicted students but also students who are currently incarcerated.
RASCOE: That's Rachel Burns, a senior policy analyst at the State Higher Education Executive Officers Association, talking about expected changes in the Free Application for Student Aid, or FAFSA. Thank you so much for joining us.
BURNS: Thank you so much for having me.

V. I. Lenin
Report on subbotniks, delivered to a moscow city conference of the r.c.p. (b.) , december 20, 1919.
Delivered: 20 December, 1919 First Published: Brief report published in Izvestia No. 287; December 21, 1919; First published in full in 1927; Published according to the verbatim report Source: Lenin’s Collected Works , 4th English Edition, Progress Publishers, Moscow, 1965, Volume 30, page 283-288 Translated: George Hanna Transcription/HTML Markup: David Walters & Robert Cymbala Copyleft: V. I. Lenin Internet Archive (www.marx.org) 2002. Permission is granted to copy and/or distribute this document under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License
Comrades, the organisers of the conference inform me that you have arranged for a report on subbotniks and divided it into two parts so that it would be possible to discuss the main thing in this field in detail; first, the organisation of subbotniks in Moscow and results achieved, and secondly, practical conclusions for their further organisation. I should like to confine myself to general propositions, to the ideas born of the organisation of subbotniks as a new phenomenon in our Party and governmental development. I shall, therefore, dwell only briefly on the practical aspect.
When the first communist subbotniks had just been organised it was difficult to judge to what extent such a phenomenon deserved attention and whether anything big would come of it. I remember that when the first news of them began to appear in the Party press, the appraisals of comrades close to trade union organisational affairs and the Commissariat of Labour were at first extremely restrained, if riot pessimistic. They did not think there were any grounds for regarding them as important. Since then subbotniks have become so widespread that their importance to our development cannot be disputed by anyone.
We have actually been using the adjective “communist” very frequently, so frequently that we have even included it in the name of our Party. But when you give this matter some thought, you arrive at the idea that together with the good that has followed from this, a certain danger for us may have been created. Our chief reason for changing the name of the Party was the desire to draw a clear line of distinction between us and the dominant socialism of the Second International. After the overwhelming majority of the official socialist parties, through their leaders, had gone over to the side of the bourgeoisie of their own countries or of their own governments during the imperialist war, the tremendous crisis, the collapse of the old socialism, became obvious to us. And in order to stress as sharply as possible that we could not consider socialists those who took sides with their governments during the imperialist war, in order to show that the old socialism had gone rotten, had died—mainly for that reason the idea of changing the Party's name was put forward. This the more so, since the name of “Social-Democratic” has from the theoretical point of view long ceased to be correct. As far back as the forties, when it was first widely used politically in France, it was applied to a party professing petty-bourgeois socialist reformism and not to a party of the revolutionary proletariat. The main reason, the motive for changing the name of our Party which has given its new name to the new International was the desire to cut ourselves off decisively from the old socialism.
If we were to ask ourselves in what way communism differs from socialism, we should have to say that socialism is the society that grows directly out of capitalism, it is the first form of the new society. Communism is a higher form of society, and can only develop when socialism has become firmly established, Socialism implies work without the aid of the capitalists, socialised labour with strict accounting, control and supervision by the organised vanguard, the advanced section of the working people; the measure of labour and remuneration for it must be fixed. It is necessary to fix them because capitalist society has left behind such survivals and such habits as the fragmentation of labour, no confidence in social economy, and the old habits of the petty proprietor that dominate in all peasant countries. All this is contrary to real communist economy. We give the name of communism to the system under which people form the habit of performing their social duties without any special apparatus for coercion, and when unpaid work for the public good becomes a general phenomenon. It stands to reason that the concept of “communism” is a far too distant one for those who are taking the first steps towards complete victory over capitalism. No matter how correct it may have been to change the name of the Party, no matter how great the benefit the change has brought us, no matter how great the accomplishments of our cause and the scale on which it has developed—Communist Parties now exist throughout the world and although less than a year has passed since the foundation of the Communist International , from the point of view of the labour movement it is incomparably stronger than the old, dying Second International —if the name “Communist Party” were interpreted to mean that the communist system is being introduced immediately, that would be a great distortion and would do practical harm since it would be nothing more than empty boasting.
That is why the word “communist” must be treated with great caution, and that is why communist subbotniks that have begun to enter into our life are of particular value, because it is only in this extremely tiny phenomenon that something communist has begun to make its appearance. The expropriation of the landowners and capitalists enabled us to organise only the most primitive forms of socialism, and there is not yet anything communist in it. If we take our present-day economy we see that the germs of socialism in it are still very weak and that the old economic forms dominate overwhelmingly; these are expressed either as the domination of petty proprietorship or as wild, uncontrolled profiteering. When our adversaries, the petty-bourgeois democrats, Mensheviks and Socialist-Revolutionaries, assert in their objections to us that we have smashed large-scale capitalism but that the worst kind of profiteering, usury capitalism, persists in its place, we tell them that if they imagine that we can go straight from large-scale capitalism to communism they are not revolutionaries but reformists and utopians.
Large-scale capitalism has been seriously undermined everywhere, even in those countries where no steps towards socialism have yet been taken. From this point of view, none of the criticisms or the objections levelled against us by our opponents are serious. Obviously the beginnings of a new, petty, profiteering capitalism began to make their appearance after large-scale capitalism had been crushed. We are living through a savage battle against the survivals of large-scale capitalism which grasps at every kind of petty speculation where it is difficult to counteract it and where it takes on the worst and most unorganised form of trading.
The struggle has become much fiercer under war conditions and has led to the most brutal forms of profiteering, especially in places where capitalism was organised on a larger scale, and it would be quite incorrect to imagine that the revolutionary transition could have any other form. That is how matters stand in respect of our present-day economy. If we were to ask ourselves what the present economic system of Soviet Russia is, we should have to say that it consists in laying the foundations of socialism in large-scale industry, in reorganising the old capitalist economy with the capitalists putting up a stubborn resistance in millions and millions of different ways. The countries of Western Europe that have emerged from the war as badly off as we are—Austria, for instance—differ from us only in that the disintegration of capitalism and speculation are more pronounced there than in our country and that there are no germs of socialist organisation to offer resistance to capitalism. There is, however, not yet anything communist in our economic system. The “communist” begins when subbotniks (i. e., unpaid labour with no quota set by any authority or any state) make their appearance; they constitute the labour of individuals on an extensive scale for the public good. This is not helping one's neighbour in the way that has always been customary in the countryside; it is work done to meet the needs of the country as a whole, and it is organised on a broad scale and is unpaid. It would, therefore, be more correct if the word “communist” were applied not only to the name of the Party but also to those economic manifestations in our reality that are actually communist in character. If there is anything communist at all in the prevailing system in Russia, it is only the subbotniks , and everything else is nothing but the struggle against capitalism for the consolidation of socialism out of which, after the full victory of socialism, there should grow that communism that we see at subbotniks , not with the aid of a book, but in living reality.
Such is the theoretical significance of subbotniks ; they demonstrate that here something quite new is beginning to emerge in the form of unpaid labour, extensively organised to meet the needs of he entire state, something that is contrary to all the old capitalist rules, something that is much more lofty than the socialist society that is conquering capitalism. When the workers on the Moscow-Kazan Railway, people who were living under conditions of the worst famine and the greatest need, first responded to the appeal of the Central Committee of the Party to come to the aid of the country,  and when there appeared signs that communist subbotniks were no longer a matter of single cases but were spreading and meeting with the sympathy of the masses, we were able to say that they were a phenomenon of tremendous theoretical importance and that we really should afford them all-round support if we wanted to be Communists in more than mere theory, in more than the struggle against capitalism. From the point of view of the practical construction of a socialist society that is not enough. It must be said that the movement can really be developed on a mass scale. I do not undertake to say whether we have proved this since no general summaries of the extent of the movement we call communist subbotniks have yet been prepared. I have only fragmentary information and have read in the Party press that these subbotniks are developing more and more widely in a number of towns. Petrograd comrades say that subbotniks are far more widespread in their city than in Moscow. As far as the provinces are concerned many of the comrades who have a practical knowledge of this movement have told me that they are collecting a huge amount of material on this new form of social labour. However, we shall only be able to obtain summarised data after the question has been discussed many times in the press and at Party conferences in different cities; on the basis of those data we shall be able to say whether the subbotniks have really become a mass phenomenon, and whether we have really achieved important successes in this sphere. Whatever may be the case, whether or not we shall soon obtain that sort of complete and verified data, we should not doubt that from the theoretical point of view the subbotniks are the only manifestation we have to show that we do not only call ourselves Communists, that we do not merely want to he Communists, but are actually doing something that is communist and not merely socialist. Every Communist, therefore, everyone who wants to be true to the principles of communism should devote all his attention and all his efforts to the explanation of this phenomenon and to its practical implementation. That is the theoretical significance of the subbotniks . At every Party conference, therefore, we must persistently raise this question and discuss both its theoretical and its practical aspect. We must not limit this phenomenon to its theoretical significance. Communist subbotniks are of tremendous importance to us not only because they are the practical implementation of communism. Apart from this, subbotniks have a double significance—from the standpoint of the state they are purely practical aid to the state, and from the standpoint of the Party—and for us, members of the Party, this must not remain in the shade—they have the significance of purging the Party of undesirable elements and are of importance in the struggle against the influences experienced by the Party at a time when capitalism is decaying.
 The Moscow City Conference of the R,C.P.(B.) was held December 20-21, 1919. The Conference discussed the convocation of an All-Russia Party Conference, the fuel problem, subbotniks , measures of combating typhus epidemics, the food situation in Moscow, universal military training, and special detachments.
A resolution on subbotniks underscored their tremendous significance as the first practical steps in building communism. The Party Conference recognised the great importance of subbotniks in achieving tangible results in raising labour productivity and in alleviating the transport, fuel, food and other crises of the Soviet Republic, and made it incumbent upon all Party members to take part in subbotniks and make their work the most productive.
After Lenin's report the Conference heard the report on the organisation of subbotniks and approved an instruction. The Moscow Party Committee worked out and approved the “Statute on Subbotniks” published in Pravda on December 27, 1919. A special department was formed at the Moscow Committee of the R.C.P.(B.) for their supervision.
 Lenin refers to the “Theses of the CC., R.C.P.(B.) in Connection with the Situation on the Eastern Front” written on April 11, 1919, in which the Central Committee appealed to all Party organisations and all trade unions “to set to work in a revolutionary way” (see present edition, Vol. 29).
