7 day Mortgage Interest Rate lock or Float Advice: FLOAT
Mortgage Points based on 3.5% Mortgage Backed Securities are down 0.03 point.

30 Day Mortgage Interest Rate Lock or Float Advice: LOCK.

Rates could easily move higher or lower, but given the nearness to all time lows, there's generally more risk than reward regarding floating so my advice is to lock.



National Average Fixed Rate Mortgage 3.66%

NOTE TO READERS - This article is absolute BS.  But you need to read it because your legislators will attempt to use this type of thinking to do away with your Mortgage Interest Rate deduction.  If you sit tight and do nothing they will take it away!  You need to be angry and contact your legislators.  You also must be aware that academic hacks exist happy to justify any result for pay.

As we do not have enough work for the legislators to do they have to justify how to bring in more money to spend and pad their pockets.

Make yourself a great day
