OCTOBER 2012 – RATES RISE SLIGHTLY, STILL NEAR RECORD LOWS

OCTOBER 2012 – RATES RISE SLIGHTLY, STILL NEAR RECORD LOWS

October 1st, 2012            

Happy October!!

The MBS market closed last week trading up (+ 37 bps), and is currently trading (+ 25 bps) on Monday morning.

While mortgage rates should have improved last week- they actually increased slightly.  This is a result of most lenders enacting the Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac guaranteed fee increase for loans delivered to Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac December 1st, 2012 and later.

This week will likely be volatile in the rate markets with Europe still working on plans to save the Euro.  On Friday, the unemployment report comes out.  This will usually push rates one way or the other.  The expectation is that jobs will increase but the unemployment report will stay the same due to potential workers dropping out of the job market.

Now is still a great time to lock in at record low rates.

My best values of the week:
