As I previously mentioned; this time of year things are slow in the mortgage industry...really slow. But that doesn't mean applications are at zero so for those that are looking to start a new application to purchase a home or refinance a mortgage we're here to help!
What a differene a year makes. Last year at this time mortgage rates we're significantly higher than the level they are at today. Overall purchase and refinance mortgage rates are near their multi year lows despite the resolution (or at least partial) to the US-China trade deal (which was major concern heading into December).
Current Mortgage Rates:
So if you are looking to purchase a home or refinance a current mortgage you probably want an idea of where mortgage rates are currently.
This is a general overview of the two most popular terms (30 year and 15 year fixed rate mortgage).
- 30 year fixed rate mortgages are below 3.75% for most people. Keep in mind there are closing costs and there may be points involved.
- 15 year fixed rate mortgages are below 3.00% for most people. Keep in mind there are closing costs and there may be points involved.
If you would like to stay up-to-date with current mortgage rates you should deffinetly check out our website. I update it frequestly (usually daily) with the latest mortgage information and mortgage rates. You can also contact me for a current quote and/or ask me questions.
