4 reasons why rising mortgage rates are good – There’s a silver lining to rising mortgage rates, which have crept up over the past year. It’s now easier to get a mortgage — and it won’t likely take as long to close the loan, either. The number of people refinancing is way down, forcing lenders to consider ways to drum up business. So now, they’re often more willing to consider borrowers with less-than-perfect credit or those who don’t have a 20% down payment.
