"A rise in mortgage rates this small isn't likely to make a major impact on home buying or refinancing decisions," commented Nat Criss, Managing Partner of CMG Equities, LLC, which runs "The difference in payment is not significant for most loan amounts, and home financing is still amazingly inexpensive for those who can qualify. Still, it's a good reminder that the downward trend we've been seeing in interest rates isn't guaranteed to last forever," he continued.
