The big question in the mortgage industry is when the rates are going to go up. There’s been talks about it being in March which may be the truth. The Federal reserve is looking to raise its benchmark interest rate this month as long as the economic data remains strong.
The Federal Reserve has hinted March 14-15 will be the meeting that could bring a rate hike. Rate hikes are likely to rise faster this year as the economy appears to be growing with few hurdles and the risks have receded substantially. We will soon see what impact this will have on the industry.
