This is actually good guidance for any type of minute in time (after all, you may be reading this write-up on some day apart from March 14th!). Especially, home mortgage rates can change rapidly throughout the day, and also massively from week to week despite the fact that they can likewise be really dull for months at a time.

Suffice it to say that 2022 has actually not been among the uninteresting times for prices.
