Right now is an incredible opportunity to get historically low interest rates on a mortgage
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) October 17, 2011
With the economy bumping along the bottom, and stalemates in Washington preventing any legislative action, many people are starting to talk about a double-dip recession. But AccessBanc Mortgage, a Bay Area mortgage broker, says there is one group benefiting from the bad economy: borrowers. Mortgage-backed securities have recently hit all-time lows, which means interest rates on home loans are at ridiculously low rates, making it an excellent time to refinance a mortgage.
“Right now is an incredible opportunity to get historically low interest rates on a mortgage,” says Greg Erny, a Principal at AccessBanc Mortgage. “If you have been considering taking out or refinancing a mortgage loan, you won’t find a better time to apply. Even if you obtained a loan within the last year, interest rates have probably gone down low enough to refinance again.”
In an attempt to boost the slower-than-expected economic recovery, the Federal Reserve recently began purchasing more long-term bonds and mortgage-backed securities, which has the effect of pushing down long-term interest rates. This year, interest rates on the 30-year Treasury Bond had already hit a 60-year low, and this move by the Fed will most likely push them even lower.
For those looking to purchase a new home, this is great news. Home prices are currently low, and with interest rates at unheard-of lows, people may be surprised to discover the kind of home they can now afford.
For current homeowners, refinancing has never looked better. “If you thought your current mortgage rate was low, you’d better check again. Given these ridiculously low rates, it’s time to call AccessBanc Mortgage to determine whether it is time for you to refinance again,” says Erny.
