In case you haven’t heard yet, the Federal Government took control of Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac over this last weekend. This means (among other things) that all changes to their loan programs will have to go through congress now. The potential long term effects of this Government intervention are still uncertain, however, the short term effects have been amazing. RATES ARE LOWER.
30 year rates have fallen about .5% in the last 24 Hours. Good borrowers can get a 30 year rate at 5.875% (without a buy down) as of 6:00 this morning. This is good news for people currently entertaining purchases - but is even BETTER news for people looking to refinance. If you have been holding off on refinancing because rates were too high in the mid 6's, now is the time to call your lender and watch rates fall this week. I think there is a strong potential to hit 5.5 sometime this week.
These windows of opportunity have been short lived over the last 18 months. It is a good time to get aggressive.
