Recent Historic Low Mortgage Rates

I think we can all agree that 2020 has been a chaotic year, but fortunately enough, Gershman Mortgage has good news for homebuyers and homeowners alike! If you are considering purchasing a home, now is a better time than ever! Mortgage rates set another record low this month by hitting as low as 2.5%, with an APR of 2.737 for a 30 year fixed loan. While interest rates continue to remain the lowest they’ve ever been, more first-time homebuyers are gearing up for those shiny new keys, and if they aren’t, they should be! 

The average rate on a 30-year fixed loan is about 3%. This rate has fluctuated quite a bit this year and it may continue to do so, but for now buyers should seize this opportunity while it lasts. Since early March of this year, these favorable rates have helped thousands of families move-in or refinance their homes.

The recovery of the housing market over the past several months has been quite remarkable and Americans are moving faster now than ever before.
