Rate Perspective

MARCH 25, 2022

Given the recent increase in mortgage interest rates, we think a little perspective is in order.

  • The average 30-year rate for the last 40+ years is 7.5%
  • Rates are now back within the range where they were between April 2018 and February 2019
  • Between January 2000 and December 2009, the high was 8.15% and the low was 5.05%
  • Between January 1990 and December 1999, rates never went below 6.25%

Bottom line, while the increase in rates is challenging for active buyers, rates are still incredibly low historically speaking.
