Mortgage Rates Off Record Lows

It’s looking like the window of opportunity for ultra-low interest rates may slowly beginning to pass.

    Freddie Mac News 

    Last week Freddie Mac released their weekly survey and announced that the
    30-year fixed rate loan’s interest rate rose to 3.39 percent. Although this is just
    an increase of .07 percent, it’s a sign that interest rates wont stay at their all-time-
    low forever.

    Besides the slight rise in the interest rate for a 30-year mortgage loan, the interest rate for a 15-year-loan also rose slightly to 2.70 percent, from 2.69. The five-year ARM also saw a slight increase to 2.73 percent, from 2.72 percent.

    The Real Bottom Line

    What does this mean for people in Orange County who are interested in buying a new home? The answer is simple, it’s time to take advantage of mortgage loan interest rates, while they are still historically low.
