    After months and years of record low mortgage rates, there's still pent up demand?

    yes - for those who were on the fence about floating down and watching a constant increase in rates, the downturn last week I guarantee got people off the fence who do not want to miss these record low rates.

    I can only speak for myself - since I am building a house. They have been at 4.75% prime for several months.

     

    I was able to float down to 4.5% and locked last week. Doesn't sound like much but it will be $35 less/month for me.

     

    I have been watching rates daily waiting for my chance - and it finally happened last week after the jobs number.
