Mortgage rates are falling unexpectedly and sharply, and that means millions more homeowners can now benefit from refinancing their loans.
The average rate on the popular 30-year fixed has fallen from a recent high of 4.23% on May 21 to 3.94% now, according to Mortgage News Daily.

Bidding wars had homes selling for thousands over asking and, yet most buyers were able to purchase their dream homes with affordable mortgage payments due to low rates. Heading into 2018, still in a sellers’ market, we should see this continue for awhile even with interest rates slowly rising – this year will still be a smart time to sell. To paint you a pretty picture – in the Greater Portland area, there are still 6,400+ homes on the market and 45% of them are already sold! That means that practically half of the houses you see with a FOR SALE sign in the yard- will already have a “SOLD” sticker on them.
