Mortgage Rates Drop…

Mortgage costs and rates were expected to climb after the Federal Reserve raised its benchmark lending rate in December, but mortgage rates for 30-year loans fell to the lowest level since late April 2015, reducing borrowing costs.

The reason borrowing costs are declining is due to turbulent global markets and slowing U.S. job growth. These recent signs of economic slowdown has been driving investors to the safety of U.S. government bonds, which translates to lower mortgage rates. That is good news at the start of the prime home buying/selling season, which traditionally begins after this Sunday’s Super Bowl.

There are measurable tax benefits for being a homeowner so if you are thinking homeownership could be right for you, now is the time to get pre-approved. If you are thinking of refinancing and lowering your rate and/or consolidate some debt, this might be the right time to do so.
