Is there any way to keep my current mortgage rate when upgrading to a new home?

This may be wishful thinking… I bought my first home two years ago with a mortgage rate under 4%. I am looking upgrade with the purchase of a new home and sell my current home within the next two years. With mortgage rates rising is there anyway I can maintain my current mortgage rate on the purchase of a new home?

    Hi James,

    Unfortunately, if you purchase a new mortgage, you’ll get a new rate. There’s no way to transfer your rate to a new house.The good news is that rates are still historically low! If you’re planning on moving to a new home soon, consider talking to a banker about your options so you can take advantage of the current low rates.

    No. New mortgage…new rate.

    You might get lucky and qualify for the lower rate, but there is no way to guarantee it. Lenders aren’t going to leave income on the table.
