Lock rate now or wait?

FHA has been sitting at 3.75% since the end of December. Should I rate lock now or wait to see if rates drop a bit more. Closing at end of February.

Re: Lock rate now or wait?

I'd lock as soon as you like the rate.  We'll need to see a huge rally for FHA rates to change much, they aren't as volatile as conventional rates.  Tuesday we had a nice improvement in rates, today we gave it all back (and then some).
