Interest Rates Keep Dropping. How Long To Wait To Refinance?

Even if you are keen to refinance your home, you may be hesitant to actually lock in an interest rate when rates continue to fluctuate and keep dropping. While it makes perfect and good sense that you would want to obtain the best possible deal, don’t let this good sense turn to bad sense by waiting forever to lock in. Some homeowners are hesitant to commit to an interest rate because they worry that if they’re locked in, a better rate will come along that they could have had if only they had waited. The fact of the matter is, locking the interest rate on a mortgage loan is, and always will be, a gamble. Sometimes you will be lucky and other times you won’t. That said, when you have a locked interest rate, you have the satisfaction of knowing that you are guaranteed this rate, regardless of whether the rates should go up at the time of your closing.
