Why you need to refinance NOW if you're mortgage rate is over 4%
There's never been a better time to refinance, yet the window is closing.
We've never before seen mortgage rates in the 2-3% range. Thanks to the economic environment we're in, it seems like they may be here for awhile. HOWEVER - starting December 1st, refinancing will become more expensive for most of us due to a new "adverse market fee" attached to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loans.
Why should you care? The difference in a $400,000 mortgage at 4% interest and one at 2.5% is $330 (car payment, anyone?) Once that fee kicks in, refinancing that loan will cost an additional $2000 (likely added to your interest rate). Due to high volume, refinancing can take longer than normal so lenders are on the crunch to get them closed by that 12/1 deadline! Act NOW! Call your banker if you have an existing relationship.
