If the feds cut rates again on Wed., how low do you think 30-year fixed rates will go?

I know a 30-year fixed mortgage isn’t tied directly to the rates the feds will probably cut, but it should have some indirect impact. I’m currently at a 6% fixed rate and refinancing in the next 30 days. Todays rates for my particular loan are 5.875%, up from 5.75% yesterday. I haven’t locked anything in because I think they’re going to drop again. When would you pull the trigger and lock it in?

    Unless you have a fixed-rate mortgage, the current mortgage interest rates are very important to deciding how much you should pay every monthcompanies offer different interest rates so it is a good idea to shop around for the best deal before settling on one particular lender.

    Jayla has absolutely no clue.
    FIXED RATE

    Things don’t look too good for you. The best time to lock in was last week wednesday.
    I think rates will be going up in the next few weeks and actually stabilizing around the same level where you are at.
    I wouldn’t refinance if I was you. You need to save at least .75% in order for it to be worth your while. Otherwise you are just throwing money away.
    Rates will not be dropping anytime soon. They already are low. Anything less then 6% on a 30yr loan is LOW. but you are already at 6% so it isn’t worth your while to refinance.
    look at the math, you would be just throwing money away.

    Wait until the 30th January when the Feds have their next meeting, it is very possible that they will drop the rates again.
