What to expect in Q4 2021
As of now, mortgage rates are still hovering near historic lows. However, a few factors – inflation, economic growth, and the Fed’s tapering – are expected to push rates higher.

Mortgage rates are gradually rising but today’s rates are still low when you look at mortgage rate history.
With 74% of homeowners having yet to refinance, the opportunity to save hundreds each month is still available. Among those who did refinance, almost half are saving $300 or more each month.
The general rule of thumb is that if mortgage rates are lower than your current rate by 1% or more, it may be a good idea to refinance.
You can take advantage of today’s low mortgage rates by lowering your interest rate, eliminating PMI, or tapping equity in your home to cash-out refinance. The possibilities are endless.
With rates expected to rise in Q4 2021 and Q1 2022, the time to strike is now.
Today’s low mortgage rates won’t last forever. Take advantage of the homeownership opportunities in front of you before it’s too late.
