Mortgage Interest Rates Reverse Course in 2017

Mortgage Interest Rates Reverse Course in 2017 | MyKCM

To start the year, housing experts all agreed on one thing: 2017 was going to be the year we would see mortgage interest rates begin to rise. After years of historically low rates, and an improving economy, the question wasn’t if they would increase but instead how much they would increase. Some thought we could see rates hit 5-5.5% by the end of the year.

However, the exact opposite has happened. Instead of higher rates as we head into the middle of 2017, we now have the lowest rates of the year (as reported by Freddie Mac). Here is a graph of mortgage rate movement since the beginning of the year:

Projections still call for an increase…

Four major entities (Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, the Mortgage Bankers Association and the National Association of Realtors) are still projecting that rates will increase by the fourth quarter of the year.

Bottom Line

No one knows for sure where interest rates will be in six months. However, if you are thinking about buying your first house or trading up to the home of your dreams, you can still get a mortgage at historically low rates RIGHT NOW.

Michelle listened to my all needs and found me the 'Perfect' home. Her ability to make you feel like family was very comforting to us. When we are ready to purchase our own home, she will be the Agent I call.


Michelle is a real "hands on" realtor. She has so much knowledge of the market in Charleston and gave me so many great ideas to ready my home prior to listing it on MLS. Due to this my home had an offer with the first showing the same day!! Try her out. ... (more)


Michelle is a very professional, outgoing, person that ONLY looks for your best interest. She listens to your needs and wants and makes them a reality. Im so glad she was a part of my home buying process. MICHELLE YOU'RE AWESOME!!!
