Low Mortgage Rates Encourage Buyers and Refinancers

 

 

According to the Mortgage Bankers’ Association, the number of home mortgage applications is up 23.1%, largely due to a sudden increase in refinancing demand.

The MBA reports that the average contract interest rate for 30-year fixed-rate mortgages with conforming loan balances ($417,500 or less) decreased to 4.06% from 4.1%, the lowest 30-year fixed rate in the history of the MBA Survey.

For a complete breakdown on current interest rates, read the complete article at agbeat.com.

There is no better time to buy a home. The rates are crazy and will be for a while. When mortgage payments are often lower than a rent payment, it doesn't get any better than that for a prospective home buyer.
