What Happens if Rates Go Up or Down with Rate Secured?

Your interest rate helps determine your monthly mortgage payment so when you lock your rate, think of it as securing your savings on your mortgage. Just remember if rates go up, your rate stays the same.      

Pro Tip: Don’t try and predict interest rates—just focus on getting a rate you’re comfortable with for your budget. If the rate and it’s resulting monthly payment work for you, then lock your rate with your Home Loan Specialist. The goal here is to protect yourself from rising rates and eliminate worry!

Don’t forget: There’s no additional costs for either of these programs so you have nothing to lose but time and money!
