Report: One Third of Americans Don’t Know Their Mortgage Rate
According to a new report by CNBC, more than a third of Americans don’t know their mortgage interest rates.
Reporter Diana Olick says Monday morning’s finding is not surprising, however, considering that – during the housing boom – many people didn’t even know whether they had a fixed or adjustable rate mortgage.
“If you don’t know your mortgage rate, especially today with falling rates and new government-backed loans that are cheaper than they were before, you could be missing out on thousands of dollars on annual savings,” Olick said.
