Mortgage Rate Lock Advice 9/7 – Short-Term Locking of Mortgage Rates Recommended

September 7, 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

Long-term – FLOAT, but if 15 – 30 days out I do recommend considering a LOCK if pricing improves as we are near the bottom.
