One of the most common questions I get asked is: “When am I able to lock a mortgage rate, what will it cost to do so?

It’s possible to lock in a mortgage rate; however, what it will cost really depends on the amount and term of the loan, as well as the length of the lock period. If you can get a great rate, locking it in might be worth the fee in the long run, especially since rates are sometimes subject to wild fluctuations.

In a perfect world, lock when rates are rising, and do not lock when rates are falling. Unfortunately, it is never this easy. Call me to discuss a strategy that makes sense for you. You can read more about rate locks HERE.
