Commercial Mortgage Rates on the Rise – Lock in Today

April 2nd, 2013

Reality Today reports commercial mortgage rates on the rise. With commercial mortgage rates on the rise, many business owners are looking to refinance. The good news is that mortgage rates are still near historic lows, but are on the rise. While Reality Today is referring to residential mortgage rates and not commercial mortgage rates, there is still a direct correlation between the two. According to the firm, the average rate for a 30 year fixed rate rose to 3.57% the week of March 28th, 2013. That is from 3.54% the week prior and from 3.31% in November, which was the lowest since 1971.

15 year rates climbed last week to 2.76% from 2.72% the week prior. The record low of 2.63% was reached in November.

While rates are off the lows of November 2012, they are still very attractive from a historical perspective. Also, with the S&P 500 reaching its all-time high, it appears the economy is getting back on track, pointing to rates going higher. So if you missed refinancing your commercial mortgage at these great rates, this may be your last chance before commercial mortgage rates continue their upward trend.
