top omaha realtors: The Reason Mortgage Rates Are Projected to Increase and What It Means for You - 02/27/21 01:33 PM

We’re currently experiencing historically low mortgage rates. Over the last fifty years, the average on a Freddie Mac 30-year fixed-rate mortgage has been 7.76%. Today, that rate is 2.81%. Flocks of homebuyers have been taking advantage of these remarkably low rates over the last twelve months. However, there’s no guarantee rates will remain this low much longer.
Whenever we try to forecast mortgage rates, we should consider the advice of Mark Fleming, Chief Economist at First American:

Here’s the breakdown of each one and why they’re both important when buying a home.
