The MBS market closed last week trading up (+ 44 bps) and on Monday morning the mbs market is trading up (+ 19 bps).

Last week the mbs market started off higher, but for most of the week lenders were not pricing better. Monday morning, we are seeing some nice improvement likely due to mortgage backed security market breaking a technical barrier of 1.46%.

Rates have broken yet another record – right now a well qualified buyer can get a 3.375% 30 year fixed for less than .3 pts.

The European debt crisis is again one of the issues that continue to drive investors and mortgage rates. Greece is on the verge of a US 30’s type depression and will likely have to leave the European Union soon. Investors are flocking to safe investments is the Euro is crumbling.

I would recommend locking and taking advantage of these gains if you can.

My best value of the week:

30 Year Fixed at 3.375% paying .298 points
20 Year Fixed at 3.25% paying .11 points
