Mortgage Rates December 10, 2019

Mortgage Rates December 10th 2019After plummeting over the summer, average mortgage rates have been stable the past several months. Mortgage rates changed little week over week with the biggest decline being in average rates for short term adjustable mortgage rates. We expect mortgage rates to pretty much stay near current levels the rest of the year, barring any macroeconomic events.

Mortgage rates in 2020 will also likely remain near current levels, at least for the first half of the year. The likelihood of a recession increases as the year goes on, which would send mortgage rates down from present levels. If a recession does hit next year, we could be looking at record low mortgage rates in 2020 since current rates are just above record lows set in 2012.
