Versus mortgage rates on Friday afternoon, many Knoxville  lenders were already showing lower rates Monday morning before a late-afternoon rate sheet reprice even lower.

The drop in rates lowered annual mortgage payments by roughly $180 per $100,000 borrowed.

Rate dips like this aren’t expected, of course, bringing us to the one of the most important axioms of shopping for a mortgage rate: You can’t shop for good luck. This is because mortgage rates are inherently unpredictable.

  • On some days, rates are higher
  • On some days, rates are lower
  • On some days, rates are unchanged

Occasionally, there are days when rates are all three.

Monday’s rate dip, though — while sharp — may not last.  Early this morning, markets were pressuring mortgage rates to rise and lenders are often quick to pass rate hikes on to consumers.

With a little bit of luck, you’ll get your rate locked in before changes for the worse.
