Does anyone have any thoughts or commentary on how long the rates will be this low? Each week, I tell myself that they cannot get any lower than this, then all of a sudden, they go lower. I often wonder whether they will get below 4.0 on the 30. Any commentary?

If you are refinancing or purchasing a home, please remember that you have the choice to pick the settlement provider. If you have an attorney, he/she can close the loan for you. You don't have to use the "banks attorney".
