My Mortgage Rate Refinance
(Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA)
Ask Kate: My Mortgage Rate Refinance Hi Kate, Here is why I did not wait for 5%. I chose to refinance my home because I felt that it was the ideal thing to do because the mortgage interest rates were decreasing. I dropped down to 6% when I was over 8% the year prior.
But even though the new rate was more than 2% below, it still didn't drop as low as I expected or as low as I wanted it to. I thought for sure I'd see them under 5%.
As far as I know mortgage rates were a lot higher then the media reported which is why I expected my mortgage rate refinance to drop more.
I know I got a good deal because I refinanced with the same person I financed with in the first place. My credit was horrible so anything was a good deal. I am satisfied with how it all turned out and the only thing I would change about it would be the interest rate.
