Have you been wondering what the mortgage interest rate forecast for 2019 is? Have you been wanting to wait to buy until prices and interest rates go back down?

Well, let's have a look at both of those questions and see if we can look at the historical statistics and the predictions. And come up with some answers.

First of all, let's look at the mortgage interest rate forecast. They are predicting an interest rate increase in every quarter of 2019. Here's a chart of those predictions.

2019 Interest Rate Predictions

Now, let's remember that predictions last year at this time were that we were going to have an increase in interest rates every quarter of this year. And yes we have had some increases this last year. And higher interest rates are going to make your Stockton home mortgage payment higher. 

The thing is that your home's mortgage payment is going to remain the same for the next 30 years. Can you say that about your rent payment? The answer to that question is NO.

Now let's look at the historical interest rate over the last 45 years. Here's a chart so you can see just how affordable interest rates are right now.

2019 Interest Rate Historical Comparison

As we can clearly see we are at near historically low interest rates. They are not going to go much lower. Although, they could go much higher.

If you have been wondering what you might be able to afford. Or if you should stop paying someone else's mortgage payment, with your rent.
