Mortgage Rates dip again in April 2020

April 2020 Market Update: COVID-19 pandemic makes mortgage rates dip again

Mortgage Rates Drop Again after a Tumultuous March!

Like the rest of our economy, affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, mortgage rates went through turbulent times in March.


But April seems to bring stability and low rates once more.  We continue to hover near a five-decade low. Unprecedented, really. Only 2 other times in the history of the US economy we had experienced such low rates. This time, the Federal Reserve seems to be doing EVERYTHING in their hands to ensure we maintain our economy stable. 

The market seems to be giving you, home owners and buyers, every possible opportunity 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.

As we turn the corner around both in the COVID-19 situation and hopefully the economy, we believe this low-rate environment won’t last much longer…

Freddie Mac Survey Graph April 2 2020

According to Freddie Mac as of April 2, 2020:

“Mortgage rates have drifted down for two weeks in a row and that drop reflects improvements in market liquidity and sentiment. While the market has stabilized relative to prior weeks, homebuyer demand has declined in response to current economic conditions. The good news is that the pending economic stimulus is on the way and will provide support for both consumers and businesses.”


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