Mortgage Rates Drop
April 8, 2021
After moving up for seven consecutive weeks, mortgage rates have dropped due to the recent, modest decline of U.S. Treasury yields. As the economy recovers, it should experience a strong rebound in the labor market. Combined, these positive signals will continue to bolster purchase demand. The drop in rates creates yet another opportunity for those who have not refinanced to take a look at the possibility.

- Is your current mortgage rate over 3%?
- Do you plan on staying in your home for the next 3 - 5 years?
