Lower interest rates have historically given homeowners the green light to refinance their homes in order to lower theirmonthly payments. Even if you think you have a great rate already and won't benefit from refinancing your mortgage, you may be mistaken. There are a multitude of reasons for refinancing your mortgage. Here are just a few:


Cash out your home equity

Are you scared to move because of the hassle of getting another home? Are you not in a city where Zillow Offers can alleviate much of the stress experienced when changing homes? You can cash out your home equity and renovate the home you have. Build an addition, modernize your kitchen, or give your walls a fresh coat of paint. With the right amount of equity in your home, you may even have payments that are comparable to what you had before with a home that feels like new.

Mortgage Rates Drop but Provide Little Relief to Falling Mortgage Applications

Posted by Lori Rezac on May 6, 2019 9:42:50 AM

The direction of mortgage rates in 2019 seems to be stumping economists. Predictions from MBA, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and NAR all had mortgage rates either remaining flat or moving higher in 2019. Up until this last week, economists were right. Now rates are on the downswing and economists are looking to possibly adjust their forecasts.


The Primary Mortgage Market Survey® released by Freddie Mac’s Economic and Housing Research group, places the average 30-year fixed rate mortgage at 4.14 percent for the week of May 2, 2019, down 0.06 percent from one week earlier. The 15-year fixed rate mortgage and the 5-year adjustable rate mortgage is at 3.6 percent and 3.68 percent, respectively. The drops are being attributed to slightly weaker inflation and labor economic data.

Lower Mortgage Rates Pushing Mortgage Demand

Posted by Lori Rezac on Apr 9, 2019 8:45:46 AM

Lower mortgage rates are proving to be helpful in kickstarting the spring home-buying season, in addition to their expected positive impact on refinance mortgages. This is a much-needed boost after a rough couple of years for mortgage lenders, who have experienced severely low housing inventory, rising mortgage rates, and tightened lending standards. All of which driving some lenders to rethink whether the mortgage business is good for their bottom line.

Mortgage rates have been steadily decreasing since the beginning of 2019.  Freddie Mac’s Primary Mortgage Market Survey® placed the 30-year fixed mortgage rate at 4.51 percent at the beginning of the year, but this last week reported it at 4.08 percent. Although this is up 2 basis points from the previous week, it is down significantly from one-year ago.
