According to Fannie Mae’s most recent National Housing Survey, a little over 50% of consumers think mortgage rates will be higher one year from today, and another 43% think rates will stay near their current levels. The survey is meant to measure changing consumer mindset toward mortgages and housing nationwide. Only 5% of those surveyed expect mortgage rates to drop in the future.
Keep in mind, USDA, FHA and VA all offer easy streamline refinance options for home owners. The USDA refinance is only available to home owners that have a USDA loan. No cash out is permitted on the USDA streamline refinance program. FHA and VA refinance options are available to most home owners that qualify and/or have eligibility in the case of VA. VA will still permit up to 100% cash out on their refinance program. Most of these refinance programs are “streamlined” with little documentation needed and often no new appraisal required.
