LOWEST INTEREST RATES IN OVER A MONTH – 30 YEAR FIXED TO 3.5%

INTEREST RATES SHOW BIGGEST IMPROVEMENT IN OVER A MONTH – 30 YEAR FIXED TO 3.5%

March 4th, 2013

Interest rates have been creeping up since December. Interest rates needed a dramatic event to turn the tide, and we saw that on Monday. With uncertainty regarding the results of the Italian elections, the stock markets tanked and interest rates received a much needed jolt. The Mortgage Backed Security market closed the week (+ 59 bps), pushing rates to their lowest levels in over a month.

The sequester came and went on Friday and it appeared the markets were expecting it, with no major movement.  The next debate is the debt ceiling, with the Federal government set to run out of money later this month. On Friday of this week, the unemployment report comes out which usually has a pretty large effect on interest rate pricing.

Remember that FHA is raising their mortgage insurance premiums and making them last the life of the loan on April 1st. If you pull your FHA case number before that, you can still qualify for the current guidelines.

Make it a great week!!
