What a Rate Increase Does to Your Mortgage Payment

More mortgage rate increases are still on the horizon; don't wait if you have the opportunity to act in the near future. This time last year (see linked article) the overal 30-year fixed rate was at 5.63 percent, this time a year later, it's 6.62% with .5 point, meaning it would be a little higher if you paid no points. The difference to you the borrower on a $350,000 loan amount is over $200/month. At 5.63 percent, your monthly principal/interest payment last year was approximately $2015.90, and at 6.62 percent this year, your payment is approximately $2239.93.
