Quick PSA: Mortgage Rates

Yesterday the Federal Reserve cut the federal funds rate by .50%, bringing it to a range of 1-1.25%. This was done in an effort to stay ahead of the potential disruptions and economic slow-down created by the Coronavirus (COVID-19). While the virus has had a mostly negative impact on the stock market, it has given us a bright spot – lower interest rates.

Typically, in times of market weakness, investors favor safer investments – like bonds. As bond purchases increase, interest rates decline, which has a direct effect on mortgage rates.

The Fed Cut and Your Mortgage Rate

Lower rates are great if you are looking to get a mortgage, or if you are able to refinance an existing one. According to bankrate.com, we are seeing 15-year and 30-year mortgage rates as low as 2.875% and 3.25%, respectively (depending on your credit score).

We wanted to take this time to make you aware, as now is a great time to talk to your mortgage broker about potentially refinancing.

As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!

In many cases students were told to pack up and leave as campuses were closed, and in nearly every college, classes were either canceled or moved online. The world really turned upside […]
