INTEREST RATES IMPROVE FOR THIRD STRAIGHT WEEK

INTEREST RATES IMPROVE FOR THIRD STRAIGHT WEEK

April 1st, 2013

Interest rates showed steady improvement for the third straight week.  The Mortgage Backed Security market closed the week trading up (+ 28 bps).

Although we are not seeing massive rate movement, interest rates gradually decreasing is a positive development for those considering a new mortgage.  With the recent rate improvement, those currently in the low 4%’s on a 30 year fixed mortgage can take advantage of a lower rate at $0 costs. 

In European debt news, Cyprus was able to reach a bail out deal, but the unrest in the European Union will likely keep investors buying safer mortgage backed securities and US treasury bonds.  This security measure should work as an obstacle for rates to move higher. 

LOCK ADVICE:

Now is a good time to lock.  Rates have improved for 3 weeks straight and are at their lowest levels since January.

This week is employment week with March’s unemployment report to be released on Friday.  As always, this usually causes considerably movement in the interest rate markets. 

Make it a great week!!
