6:37 am
percent. now, here's the deal, investors believe that president-elect trump's policies of spurring growth through infrastructure spending and tax cuts will heat up the economy. that will prompt the fed to hike rates more quickly then anticipated and that will put an end to the era of ultra low interest rates. yesterday mortgage bankers association reported average contract interest rate for 30 rate mortgage was conforming loan balances of less than 417 grand increased to the highest level in about 18 months. 4.23 percent. it is up by nearly three-quarters of a percent since the election. >> so jill realistically speaking should people try to refinance or accelerate their home purchase lance before these rates could balloon even higher. >> reporter: yes, presuming you have run the numbers and it makes sense. you know look it the is true that these increases are pretty dramatic in a short period of time and they will
