October 2016

Mortgage rates have remained low to start this month.  I am unsure if they stay like this for 1 month or 1 year, but we are probably safe at least until after the election of rates increasing drastically.  Current interest rates:

30 year and 25 year fixed: 3.50%  (Apr 3.59)

20 year fixed:  3.25% (Apr 3.32)

15 year fixed: 2.875% (Apr 2.94)

10 year fixed: 2.75% (Apr 2.82)

FHA 30 year fixed: 3.25% (Apr 3.92)

VA 30 year fixed: 3.25% (Apr 3.47)
