Refinancing my mortgage - To lock in or to not lock in.......


I'm currently paying 5.25% on my 30yr, and spoke with a broker this morning and I can get it down to 3.875%. Any hope we see lower rates in the next few weeks? She is telling me no, and I've worked with her previously (and is a friend of the family), but wanted to do my due dilligence.
I'm not in a position that I have to refinance, but if it's going to save me a substantial amount of money I'm going to do it.

rates will never be lower than they are right now. The federal funds rate can not go any lower than 0. There is only one direction rates can go at this point ... Up.

Lock it in!

Understood, but it also can fluctuate based on other things such as what traders on Wall St. are buying. When I was on the phone with the broker I had her look up a 20yr and it was more expensive than the 30.

American Mortgage

Any events in the foreseeable future that will knock rates lower? Fed meeting? Unemployment numbers?
