April 2020 Mortgage Rates:

Ok so it’s May and I didn’t post April’s Mortgage rates….here you go: April 2020 Mortgage Rates.

April was a crazy month for mortgage rates and the mortgage industry. The big news (obviously) was he Coronoaviirus pandemic and that had a significant impact on consumer mortgage rates. During the first week or two of the month mortgage rates continued to move higher (not by much) and things started to improve mid-April. As we finished up the month mortgage rates were right at their all time lows (set back in early March).

It’s Harder To Get A Mortgage For Some People:

If you have a big down payment (or lots of equity) and a high credit score you’ll probably see little impact to your ability to obtain a mortgage unless you are trying to get a jumbo mortgage or a rental property mortgage. Here are the ares in which it’s more difficult to get a mortgage:

  • Jumbo mortgage loans
  • Rental property mortgage loans
  • Mortgage loans for people with credit scores below 680
