4.5% Mortgage Rate, Is It True

Business television is abuzz  with talk of “4.5%”.  The news stems from a leaked story that the U.S. Treasury will intervene in the mortgage market, lowering rates a full percentage point below their current levels.

As cited by every journalist in every publication, however, the story is 100% speculation.  Naturally, that doesn’t stop the press from covering it.  Perhaps most importantly, nearly every analyst interviewed has expressed a belief that a Treasury-sponsored stimulus would apply to home buyers onlyHomeowners wanting a refinance, in other words, would be ineligible.

Mortgage rates are very low today compared to where they’ve been in 2006, 2007 and 2008.  If you think your mortgage rate is too high for this market, reach out to Your Mortgage Planner to review all of your options.  If rates really do reach 4.50%, you can always refinance again later.
