Interest Rates are Dropping!
It's a great time to buy real estate
The scoop is....
Mortgage rates started the year at 4.53%, and have sunk each week in 2014, falling a total of 0.3 percentage point.
Borrowers with a 4.23% mortgage would pay $982 a month on a $200,000 balance, compared with $1,017 on a 4.53% loan.
"Much to the benefit of mortgage shoppers, this move is dragging down yields and mortgage rates," said Gumbinger. "This is a nice surprise" for people looking to purchase or refinance their homes in a rising rates environment, he said.
Rates may keep dropping, according to Gumbinger.
