Missed out on those holiday shopping deals? Don't fret. The best deal awaiting you this year could be a new mortgage.
With interest rates remaining near record lows, you should seriously consider adding a mortgage to your holiday shopping list, whether you’re looking to buy a new home or want to refinance.
The savings you lock in will be a gift that keeps on giving.
Just a couple of years ago, today’s rates would have looked like door-buster deals.
We’ve found advertised rates on 30-year, fixed-rate mortgages as low as 3.75%, with no points and application fees of less than $2,000.
