The question, "What if rates go lower?" overwhelms the mind of every mortgage consumer. The reality is that interests rates move up and down and educating yourself can help you make an informed decision on when to lock in the best rate.

Mortgage rate lock explained

A mortgage rate lock is a commitment by a lender to give you a home loan at a specific interest rate, provided you close on your home in a certain period of time (which is typically 30 days from when you’re approved for your loan). This rate lock offers protection against fluctuating interest rates—useful considering that even a quarter of a percentage point can take a huge bite out of your housing budget over time.

For instance, let’s say you get a 30-year mortgage for $320,000

When is the best time to buy a house in Denver in 2017? When I'm asked this question, it reminds me of the time I asked the grouchy guy at the nursery the best time to plant a tree. His response, five years ago. Five years ago would have obviously been the best time to buy a house in Denver but since most of us don't have access to time travel, tomorrow is the best time to buy a house in Denver. 

Between now and June, the average sales price for a Denver home is expected to increase by $40,000 with the majority of appreciation in April and May. April and May is when the most buyers will be out and we will see offers in excess of 20k over asking price on a very regular basis. Prices will reach their highest point in July, but this is from all…
