THE BEST TIME TO GET A MORTGAGE IS IN APRIL!
When the monthly rates are averaged and compared to the average over the years no big seasonal pattern emerges. These calculations involve averaging all the January rates and comparing them for the overall average of the annual rates. The calculation is repeated for each of the months. The month with the lowest average mortgage rate, according to the FHA data, is April. May and August were the next lowest, only a hundredth of a percent higher than the April average.
Now, let’s talk about the benefits of an FHA mortgage loan. While federally insured mortgages are less risky to lenders, there are also many benefits that make FHA mortgages attractive to borrowers.
