Having a crystall ball that told you if the interest rate for mortgages would rise or fall would be great. Particularly in the uncertain times we’ve witnessed lately. Predictions are never entirely reliable, but based on recent events we can make some good guesses.

If you’ve been watching mortgage interest rates, you know that they have been descending the last few months. The question is, should you act now, or delay your decision? If you’re not sure if the interest is at it’s bottom right now, you may be inclined to hold off on purchasing a home. But if the interest rates go up tomorrow, you’ve missed your chance by delaying your decision.

A large amount of people have applied for for a mortgage these last couple of months. Many lenders have tried to slow the application flow down by increasing their fees, because they are flooded with mortgage applications. Mortgage interest is positioned to keep coming down, but we will see a bounce in the near future.

This bounce is not a bad development. You just have to wait it out and you’ll see the interest sink again. You will know that the market has almost reached it’s lowest point when the bounce is finished. When you buy and get a new mortgage, consider fixed rate. When mortgage interest rates jump again, you will not regret your decision.

When looking at trends of mortgage rates and all financial markets, I prefer to look at the long term trend before zooming into shorter term movements.  If we look at the last month alone, it is very difficult to find a distinctive trend.  Mortgage rates could change directions over 10 times in 30 days and it does not look like there is a trend at all.  When you zoom out and look at a much longer term chart, such as a 10 or 20 year chart, we then see what the overall trend for mortgage rates is.
