Lock or Float - What's the Best Option

Mortgage rates will fluctuate up and down based on the market. Rates can change daily, so you don't know what your rate will be until you lock it. By locking a rate, your lender is guaranteeing you that rate for a specific amount of time, typically 30-45 days. Once you lock your rate, it doesn’t matter if the market fluctuates.
