Mortgage Rates For May 6, 2019

Today’s Mortgage Rates:

Mortgage rates for May 06, 2019 will be slightly improved as trade tensions between China and the United States intensify. Since early April we’ve been hearing from the President and his team that the trade war with China was coming to an end and deal was nearly completed.

We’ll that all changed yesterday.

President Trump announced new tariffs and claimed China was not negotiating fairly. This sparked a global selloff in stocks and a rally in the bond market. This rally is why mortgage rates are starting off the week at improved levels.

Is Now A Good Time To Refinance?

This seems to be a common question among homeowners as mortgage rates remain near their 2019 This decision is different for every homeowner and here are some reasons to consider refinancing your current mortgage:

  • Mortgage rates are more than 0.375% lower than your current mortgage rate
  • Switching from a 30 year fixed rate to a 15 year fixed rate
  • You would like to obtain cash out to renovate your home
  • Educational or Medical expenses that need to be paid for
  • You’d like to get rid of PMI or MI

Mortgage rates are at great levels; near their 2019 lows so if your situation matches the one of the above reasons then it probably is a great time to look into your options.

Evaluating your options and seeing if the current environment is right for a refinance could end up saving you thousands of dollars.

If you are moving in the next 6-12 months or you are currently in the midst of a major remodel it probably is not a good idea to do a refinance. Also taking cash out to buy a boat, or a car or go on vacation is generally not advisable.
