Mortgage rates have been relatively consistent, but don't let that get you too comfortable. Rates are changing all the time --by how much, and whether it will be in your favor, we cannot say. We can make intelligent guesses, but we can't predict with any certainty.

However, that doesn't mean that you are entirely powerless when it comes to taking charge of the mortgage rate you qualify for. You hold a lot of power, including the ability to qualify for a lower rate by improving your credit score, buying points, and exploring the rates of various home loan options.

And here is another idea for getting a low mortgage rate in an uncertain market: get a floating mortgage rate.

While some potential homeowners were unable to purchase a property this summer due to fierce competition and a short supply, many experts say autumn is actually the best time to shop. With fewer people in the market to buy a home, and those who listed properties before still anxious to sell, this season creates a greater probability for better deals and price.

The biggest thing that can help facilitate real estate sales at this time of year is that most homes still on the market have been there for some time - usually a few months, according to Trulia. Sellers are more likely to bring down their prices and provide a little more wiggle room than they might have during the summer to get a deal done expediently, especially if they're looking to sell
