Low mortgage rates and plummeting home prices have done little to boost the
troubled housing market. Tougher lending standards and bigger downpayment
requirements have prevented many people from taking advantage of the ultra-low
rates. Many people who can qualify are holding off, worried that prices have yet
to bottom out.
Forty-seven percent of the mortgage industry experts polled by Bankrate.com expect the rates to remain steady over the next 30 to 45 days; while 18 percent predicting rates will increase and 35% thinking rates will go lower.
