Mortgage Rates Lowest In Over Two Years

by MB on January 21, 2008

Unless you have been following the mortgage markets closely, you may have missed the dramatic fall in rates over the last few months.

According to Bankrate.com, the National Average rate for a 15 year fixed mortgage was 4.93% over night, and 5.42% for a 30 year fixed mortgage.

As illustrated by these charts, these rates are the lowest we have seen in over two years.

I hope this provides an opportunity for many of the individuals that took adjustable rate loans to refinance into a fixed rate loan.
