Mortgage Interest Rates Drop for Second Straight Week
Mortgage interest rates in the United States fell for the second week in a row as more home buyers, especially those in Bend ventured out to start searching for homes once again.
Thanks to recent statistics from Freddie Mac we know that the mortgage interest rate for a 30-year fixed loan fell to 4.27 percent recently and the mortgage interest rate for a 15-year fixed mortgage loan is now at 3.33 percent.
What Does This Mean For You?
If you’re thinking about buying a home in Bend now is the right time to get pre-qualified for a mortgage loan because many economists feel that mortgage interest rates will continue to remain low throughout 2014 as unemployment has remained high and job growth hasn’t increased like Washington had hoped.
