Over the past three weeks, mortgage rates have reached their lowest level since 2013 – mainly due to the Federal Reserve’s fear that Britain would vote to leave the European Union. With Brexit now a reality and the global economy facing an uncertain future, rates are likely to remain low. Most people watching the news are asking how Brexit affects mortgage rates back here in the U.S.
