“Following a month-long rise, mortgage rates effectively stayed flat this week,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s Chief Economist. “Recent rate increases have yet to significantly impact purchase demand, as history demonstrates that potential homebuyers who are on the fence will often enter the market at the start of rate increase cycles.”
Khater continued, “We do expect rates to continue to increase but at a more gradual pace. Therefore, a fair number of current homeowners could continue to benefit from refinancing to lower their mortgage payment.”
