That means a strong majority of homeowners with mortgages have a rate below what they’d get if they moved right now. But if you’re a homeowner in that position, remember that mortgage rates aren’t the only thing to consider when making a move. Your mortgage rate is impor...

However, life has changes (a future job change, baby, taking care of parents or family, medical issues, college and approaching school costs etc).
