Are you looking to refinance?
If you already have a mortgage and would like to refinance, now may be a good time. Cecala noted that if your current payments on a 30-year mortgage are high enough, you might be able to refinance into a 15-year mortgage and make similar monthly payments while shortening your mortgage term.
An additional factor that may make refinancing more attractive is the current difference, or spread, between interest rates on 15-year and 30-year mortgages. According to Cecala, “historically, the difference between the 30-year fixed rate and the 15-year fixed rate has been about 25 basis points,” or about 0.25%. Currently, the spread between the two rates is especially large, at close to 1% in some cases.
