End of January 2020 Market Update: mortgage rates drop again

Mortgage Rates Drop to Lowest Level in Three Months!

The market seems to be giving every one multiple chances to lock a low mortgage rate. Interest rates are constantly changing and it’s imperative to look at the economy and housing market context. SnapFi reports the rates on the first week of the month from Freddie Mac.  The important thing to keep in mind is that even if the rate climbs slightly month to month we need to look at the big picture. Rates continue to hold steady at the lowest points in the past three years. We know this won’t last much longer…

According to Freddie Mac as of January 2, 2020:

“Rates fell to the lowest level in three months and are about a quarter point above all-time lows. The very low rate environment has clearly had an impact on the housing market as both new construction and home sales have surged in response to the decline in rates, the rebound in the economy and improving financial market sentiment.”


There are many reasons to refi or lock a purchase rate.
