Interest rates rise in the Bay Area- Now is the time to refinance

Interest rates rise in the Bay Area- Now is the time to refinance

Since mid-April, mortgage rates have been falling, shedding more than a entire percentage point along the way 5.25% all the way down to below 4.25% . For homeowners carrying a $300,000 mortgage, the rate drop is equivalent to $180 in monthly savings. But, that’s all over now.

The past 10 days since the Feds announcement of QE2 interest rates are up over 1/2%. The Fed intended on driving rates lower but by printing more money and causing a fear of inflation it has had the opposite effect.

The one segment of the market however that is not affected is the Jumbo loan market. Jumbo loan rates remain steady as they are not governed by the same entities. We are seeing Jumbo rates at impressive levels and remaining steady. With that said the time is still now.
