Will 30-year refinance rates increase?

Mortgage rates hit record lows in early 2021. Economists expect mortgage rates to rise as the economy improves. However, the trajectory of mortgage rates is notoriously difficult to predict.

Why comparing rates is important

Mortgage rates and closing costs can vary widely from lender to lender, so it’s important that you shop around before. In a report published in 2018, mortgage giant Freddie Mac said borrowers could save an average of $1,500 over the life of the loan by getting one additional rate quote, and an average of $3,000 by seeking out five quotes.
