The return of 4% mortgage rates is upon us. The average rate on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was 4.16% as of the week ending March 17, up 31 basis points from the previous week, Freddie Mac reported Thursday. One basis point is equal to one hundredth of a percentage point, or 1% of 1%.

It’s the first time that mortgage rates have surpassed 4% since May 2019, and it represents the highest level for mortgage rates since April of that year.

Roberto & Susan M.
Featured Testimonial

Sandra was recommended to us by good friends whose property she sold in two weeks. The moment we met Sandra we were impressed by her enthusiasm and professionalism. She came well prepared, she had done lots of research, had a working plan and a time table to implement each step and she stuck to it. She staged the apartment beautifully and it was sold on the first open house for a price way above the asking price...

What My Clients Are Saying...

"Well, this was an exciting first for me - a snowy owl encounter!
There’s a running joke in the gallery that although I’m not good at spotting snowy owls, I’m excellent at finding white plastic bags off in the distance! This is my third winter trying to find a snowy owl and I was so excited that I finally got to see one yesterday!"
