Mortgage rates explained
Mortgage interest rates are constantly changing, and if you're trying to watch and wait for the 'right' time to jump on a deal, you're likely going to be frustrated. Homebuying is a lengthy process at the best of times, and it's also very personal.

Plus it's subject to change based on things that have nothing to do with you.
In this video, NerdWallet's Kate Wood breaks down everything you need to know about mortgage rates and shares tips to get the best rate possible.
