Today’s Mortgage and Refinance Rates: May 26, 2022

Mortgage Rates

According to data gathered by Bankrate, national mortgage rates were largely lower than a week earlier. 30-year fixed, 15-year fixed, and jumbo loans had lower rates, while adjustable-rate mortgages had higher rates.

“You can save thousands of dollars over the life of your mortgage by getting multiple offers. “It is so important to shop around,” says Greg McBride, CFA, Bankrate chief financial analyst. “Not everyone offers the same price, and some lenders may have the motivation to be very competitive on price.”

You can choose between two types of mortgages to determine how much interest you’ll pay and if your rate will change later: a fixed-rate mortgage or an adjustable-rate mortgage. With a fixed-rate mortgage, your interest rate remains the same for the entire life of the loan. If you have a 30-year mortgage, you’ll pay the same rate today as you will 30 years from now. With an adjustable-rate mortgage, commonly referred to as an ARM, rates and monthly payments remain the same for a set period of time, then change periodically. For example, a 5/1 ARM (adjustable-rate mortgage) would have a fixed rate for the first five years of the loan, then change every year after that.
