Lenders Flooded with Refinancing Applications as Mortgage Rates Fall | RISMedia

With mortgage rates dancing around a 65-year-low of 4.75%, homeowners are checking their credit scores and lenders are being deluged with refinancing applications.

“I’ve been through about four refinance crazes in my career, and this is the most significant I’ve seen,” said Marshall Boyd, co-president of Southwest Bank Mortgage and a founding and managing partner of Williams Trew Real Estate Services.

“The No. 1 reason is that rates are lower this time,” Boyd said. “I never dreamed we would be refinancing people with loans in the 5’s to loans in the 4’s.”

Linda and Jeff Hochster watched rates for several months before refinancing their home in Fort Worth’s Mira Vista neighborhood. “We started doing research and reaching out to brokers. We just kept watching as the rate was falling over the last 45 days,” said Linda Hochster, a retired public relations manager for Southwest Airlines.
