On Monday, Nerdwallet released the average mortgage rates in the country. Rates ticked up from the week prior and are now higher than at the start of the year.
After the Federal Reserve announced a quarter of a percentage point increase in rates, we’ve seen the 30-year and 15-year mortgage interest rates tick up about that same amount. This is excellent news for buyers as a slight increase like this doesn’t change the landscape much, especially when comparing the more significant increases from last year. If you’re a homeowner who bought in 2022, especially around October, make sure you look at your interest rate then vs. now. It may be a good time to refinance!
