Mortgage News And Education

Hi Kate, This is a very common situation that some borrowers find themselves in. I believe the best thing to do is to switch lenders if you find one offering a lower interest rate.

I wouldn't worry too much about the mortgage broker that brokered the original loan. If he or she is a professional they know people refinance all the time in order to get a better rate.

So, how can borrowers avoid the headache of going through a scenario like this. They must be aware of the current economy. They can do this by reading a variety of material that can give them an idea of which way things are going as far as interest rates are concerned.

The Wall Street Journal and the financial section of other newspaper often discuss interest rates and mortgage news that can affect them. In addition, television shows such as CNN Money provide good information on the current economic climate and how it may affect interest rates.

After garnering information from different sources, it won't be long before you'll recognize the indicators that will make interest rates rise or fall. --Jaynee
