New York Mortgage Rates

If you’re looking for a new home in New York, you know that real estate isn’t cheap. New York has some of the most expensive real estate in the nation, but there’s good news: the interest rates aren’t nearly as high.

The COVID-19 pandemic may have caused serious economic damage nationwide, but it brought with it an upside: super low mortgage rates. Prior to the pandemic, we rarely saw mortgage rates drop below 3%. These days, we’re seeing rates well below that marker.

In New York, the average rate for a 30-year fixed rate mortgage loan was just 2.88% as of mid-December. That’s just slightly higher than the national average of 2.86%. A rate that low could save you tens of thousands of dollars in interest over the life of your loan, so if you’re thinking about buying or refinancing in New York, this is the time to make your move.
