Current rate drop to about 4.03% for 30-year fixed rate mortgage (for those who qualify) is a big savings for buyers on a monthly basis.

Home loan rates are fantasticRates are a lot lower today than they were at the beginning of this year 2014 – and are now at their lowest level since June 2013.

The FED has been printing money by funding the secondary market and purchasing mortgage back securities. It has held the Federal Fund Rate at almost ZERO for over five years. Lenders are essentially charged next to nothing to borrow money and are able to pass along this savings in the form of unbelievably low interest rates.

But that won’t last forever. The FED is ready to eliminate the economic stimulus (end QE3). The FED is looking to keep a lid on inflation and increase the Federal Fund Rate in about six months. That’s where we will see a change in interest and mortgage loan rates. As the Federal Fund Rate increases, banks’ profitability is squeezed, and lenders will raise their rates to home buyers and those who refinance.

In about six months – or about April 2015 – pressure is expected to rise on interest rates.

Message to home buyers and those who want to refinance: DON’T WAIT. Lock in your great mortgage loan rate now. There is no better time than now to buy your Orange County home and lock in the low rate.
