It's a new year, but a similar story from years past is on repeat. Mortgage rates are low, but not for long.
Just about every analyst out there is calling for higher rates in the new year. The economy is breaking records, and a freshly minted tax code could induce economic expansion, but also inflation.
All these factors are bad for mortgage rates.
The good news, though, is that rates are surprisingly steady in the face of overarching changes like the new tax law. A golden opportunity still exists for those who are looking to buy or refinance a home in 2018.
