Advice for borrowers: Are you in the market to purchase a home? Be sure to carefully monitor the secondary mortgage markets in order to determine the best time to lock in a rate. While it is unlikely that rates will return to the record lows hit during 2012 and the first quarter of 2013, mortgage rates remain historically low and there are many benefits associated with purachasing or refinancing in the current market. Seek the advice of a mortgage professional and remember to establish your own personal minimum and maximums to ensure that you get the best mortgage for your needs.
