Mortgage Interest Rates

Mortgage Interest Rates Keep Dropping Making Now A Great Time to Buy or Refinance

We’re at a period in the real estate market where many people thought interest ratwes would be climbing back up into the 5’s or higher but they are dipping down to 3.5%, making right now an excellent time to either buy a home in Austin or refinance your home.

What’s driving mortgage rates today?

Average mortgage rates edged down again yesterday, in line with our prediction. That makes three days of falling rates and one when they held steady in the last four business days. But recent falls have barely made a dent in the damage wreaked during the Sept. 5-13 period. Of course, mortgage rates today still remain remarkably low by almost all standards.

So far this morning, markets look set for another subdued day. And with no economic reports due for publication, things might stay that way. However, there’s always the risk of a big news story — or even just a shift in market sentiment — creating disruption

Mortgage rates today look likely to hold steady or just inch either side of the neutral line. But, as always, events might overtake that forecast.
