Current Mortgage Rate Info – Contact Us!
Clients are asking our thoughts on current and future interest rates. To keep things in perspective, the all-time highest interest rate was 18.63% in October 1981 (according to Freddie Mac data). Rates right now are close to the US historical 30-year average mortgage rate. The other good news is that what goes up, must come down. If you purchase now with an interest rate in the 5’s or 6’s, it’s important to know that if rates decrease in the future, you may be able to refinance and take advantage of the lower rates to lower your payment. We advise anyone looking to buy a home to stay in touch with us, as we’re actively keeping track of the current market conditions. We can be your biggest asset when figuring out your home buying budget. Reach out today with any questions or concerns! We’re here to guide you to The Smartest Way Home!
