Mortgage Rate Forecast

I'm a mom, a wife, podcast junkie & Realtor. I help my clients go from overwhelmed by buying & selling at the same time to popping 🍾 and living their best life.

Hi! I"m Kaylynn.

Geopolitical uncertainty is causing mortgage rates to drop. Windermere Chief Economist, Matthew Gardner, explains why this is and what you can expect to see mortgage rates do in the coming year.


Over the past few months we’ve seen a fairly significant drop in mortgage rates that has been essentially driven by geopolitical uncertainty – mainly caused by the trade war with China and ongoing discussions over tariffs with Mexico.

Now, mortgage rates are based on yields on 10-Year treasuries, and the interest rate on bonds tends to drop during times of economic uncertainty.  When this occurs, mortgage rates also drop.

Gardner’s current forecast model predicts that average 30-year mortgage rates will end 2019 at around 4.4%, and by the end of 2020 he expects to see the average 30-year rate just modestly higher at 4.6%.
