Good morning, i?m jeff farnham 1.

Record low mortgage rates continue to motivate potential homebuyers and drive the home buying season, which shifted from last spring to summer, and is expected to continue into the fall.


The good news is that the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is still below 3% in some cases.


But remember, mortgage rates?are constantly changing.


So the question remains: will mortgage rates creep higher, stay the same, or drift lower in the coming days and weeks?


Experts differ in their answers, but most agree that rates should remain historically low and affordable for most borrowers in?september 2020.


If you're looking to buy a home or refinance, you'll want to pay attention to how the rates are trending.


If you see rates dip one day, that could be?the day?to lock-in your low rate for your home purchase or refinance.


Mortgage rates are again at a level that would allow roughly 18 million homeowners to save an average $287 a month by refinancing, according to data from the mortgage research firm black knight.


And keep in mind, even though the recently- announced freddie mac and fannie mae 0.5% refinance fee has been delayed from starting sept.

1 to dec.

1, experts predict that the fee could begin driving rates higher by october, when lenders start preparing for its implementation.


So if you?re considering a refinance, you?ll certainly want to move sooner rather than later.


Call to speak with one of our experienced loan advisors today, who can advise you best on your next step.


Real estate agents say that the list of homebuying must- haves has changed during the pandemic.


Buyers are now prioritizing home offices, pools, and makeshift learning centers, as working, schooling, and spending more time than ever at home, continues .


And when it comes to home offices, agents are learning that one home office isn't enough.


As many couples are both working from home now, two offices are a must, or another area that can be used as a second office.
