Rate Lock Advice for Chicago and Oak Park – 8/2

August 2, 2010

Are you currently in the process of buying a home or refinancing in Chicago or vicinity? Trying to decide when to lock can be a stressful and difficult decision. In my job as a mortgage lender, I watch the markets daily to keep my clients abreast of changes to assist them in securing the best mortgage rate possible. Please see my recommendations below.

Short-term – LOCK as equities markets are responding very favorably to economic news out of Europe. If closing in more than 15 days, however, I still recommend FLOATING, but the market is losing momentum and there is increasing risk of rates increasing.

Long-term – FLOAT but markets could begin to shift and you should be ready if they do. I would keep vigilant over the next few days.
