What Are the Interest Rate Trends for 2019?

It is difficult to make a specific trend prediction because the economic environment is not stable this year. According to the statistics for daily mortgage rates, interest rates have been decreasing recently. This general decline in interest rates will not immediately reverse course.

Bankrate (a consumer financial services company) has conducted a survey among experts in the mortgage industry. Among experts, only 22% predict rates will rise this year, while 78% think rates will fall. Very few predict rates will remain relatively unchanged.

Combined with an increase in pending home sales, this trend for interest rates hints at a rise in home buying.
