NO, You Can't Get That New 0% Mortgage Rate You Heard About
Lots of words recently and lots to do for all of us, so let's make this simple.
No, you can't get a that new 0% mortgage rate you heard about! It doesn't exist. That's the Fed Funds Rate. It applies to overnight loans between the biggest financial institutions in the US.
If you are one of those institutions and you need money for less than 1 day, then have at it.
If you're a homeowner or buyer looking for a mortgage, you are looking at MORTGAGE RATES, which are different than the Fed Funds Rate.
Could mortgage rates go lower? Yes.
They probably will, but not by 0.5%, and not in a day. They could also go higher. One place They're not going is 0%.
