REAL ESTATE: The Window of Opportunity is Open Again

 |   |  « Back

Despite the recent fluctuations in the market and prognostications to the contrary, mortgage rates have reached record lows. The rate for a 15-year fixed-rate mortgage hit a record low during the week of August 15, 2011, averaging 3.36%. Rates for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage hit their lowest levels in 40 years, averaging 4.15% for the same period. From this corner, consumers have an incredible opportunity to refinance either into a more favorable interest rate, a shorter amortization period, or to move from a variable to a fixed rate mortgage.



  • According to the Mortgage Bankers Association, refinance applications were at the highest level of the year, up 30% for the week ending August 5, 2011.


  • According to Freddie Mac, 34% of those refinancing in the first quarter switched to a 20-year or 15-year product, representing the highest share in seven years.


Don’t wait! History has consistently demonstrated that a wide open window of opportunity can suddenly slam down on the fingers of a complacent consumer. And trust me, missing out on these rates will cause a pain that lasts for a long time.
