Mortgage interest rates have increased over the last several weeks. Freddie Mac, along with Fannie Mae, the Mortgage Bankers Association and the National Association of Realtors, is calling for mortgage rates to continue to rise over the next four quarters.
This has caused some purchasers to hesitate and lament the fact they may no longer be able to get a rate below 4%. However, we must realize that current rates are still at historic lows, making it still a very good time to purchase a home.
