What to do when the Stock Market goes down 200 points

April 28th, 2010 1:57 PM by Susan C Pearlstein

When the stock market drops over 200 points like yesterday people panic and put their money into Treasuries (bonds), the Great News is that mortgage rates get cheaper. And if there is a complete stock market panic rates will be fantastic. You could refinance right that second if you had your paperwork in with us, but no you want to wait until rates go lower. Go toto see our current rates.

Unfortunately, even our independent adviser, www.statewideonline.com/DailyRateLockAdvisory, think rates could be headed lower. Please feel free to go to look at that link any time to get an independent perspective (it isn't necessarily ours).

Our recommendation is to go to our site www.statewideonline.com, fill out an application and get your paper work in so when the next crash comes you can lock in a great rate. Keep in mind that if asset prices continue to decline then the fair market value of your home may not keep up with deflation.
