30 YEAR FIXED TO 4%

30 YEAR FIXED TO 4%

August 26th, 2014

Last week saw interest rates move up at the beginning of the week and improve near the end of the week. The Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market ended last week trading down – 31 bps. At the close of trading on Tuesday of this week – the MBS market is trading up + 9 bps.

Even though the MBS market is down over the past week and a half – my interest rate pricing is right in line with the best rates I’ve been able to offer this year.

My 30 year fixed conforming product is now available at 4% with less than a point, and 4.125% with 0 points.

We continue to see securities trading in very narrow ranges and interest rates refusing to dip below a certain level. That has been the case for most of 2014. We likely won’t see rates fall dramatically without a major market moving event.

There is increased speculation that the European Central Bank could start their own asset purchasing/quantitative easing program which would definitely be a major market event. This would make Wall Street very happy with more money being pumped into the World’s financial markets.

At the current time though, I see interest rates staying right around their current level without a ton of movement up or down.

RATES CLOSE TO LOWEST LEVELS OF THE YEAR

RATES CLOSE TO LOWEST LEVELS OF THE YEAR

August 19th, 2014

Mortgage rates hit their lowest levels in 2 months on Friday when concern over escalation of the Ukraine/Russia conflict had investors trading for safety. The Mortgage Backed Security Market closed the day up + 26 basis points, and finished last week up + 40 bps.

As is typical in this market where much of the rate changes are in response to geopolitical headlines, the MBS market closed down – 36 bps on Monday when no military action took place in Ukraine/Russia over the weekend.

The markets will likely continue to follow this trend with rates improving when escalation of military action abroad is expected/happening and rates will go up when it appears a peaceful resolution is coming.

Although Monday took back much of the gains of last week, so far on Tuesday the MBS market is trading up + 16 bps and mortgage interest rates are still at some of the lowest levels of the year.

Janet Yellen, the FED chief, is speaking at a banker’s conference on Friday. She is expected to address Labor Markets and a possible rate increase. This is something to pay attention to as whenever the Federal Reserve Board speaks – the market listens and it can move interest rate pricing in a hurry.

RATES MOVE SIDEWAYS / VOLATILITY AHEAD

RATES MOVE SIDEWAYS / VOLATILITY AHEAD

August 10th, 2014

Mortgage rates moved sideways last week even though the MBS market closed the week trading up + 22 bps. Markets hit their highs on Thursday with geopolitical concerns causing investors to seek safety in treasuries and bonds.

On Friday – after trading higher for much of the day – Mortgage Backed Securities closed sharply lower after Russia ended military drills on the Ukraine border and speculation that the conflict in this region was deescalating.

Mortgage interest rates are artificially lower than they should be due to military conflicts around the world.

A lot of people I follow see mortgage rates entering into a volatile week with the possibility that mortgage rates could move higher. They have been holding at this low level for some time when most experts predicted mortgage rates to move significantly higher in 2014. My recommendation is to lock.

MORTGAGE RATES RECOVER AFTER JOBS REPORT

MORTGAGE RATES RECOVER AFTER JOBS REPORT

August 4th, 2014

Mortgage Rates were extremely volatile last week with a lot of movement in the Mortgage Backed Security Market.

On Wednesday – mortgage interest rate pricing shot up sharply with GDP data coming in higher than expected. The MBS market ended the day trading down – 68 bps. Friday, was the important July jobs report. If non farm payroll jobs increased more than expected – we could have seen a significant move higher in interest rates. Luckily, the data came back slightly lower than expected. Market analysts expected non farm payroll jobs to increase over 233,000. The numbers came back at 209,000. The MBS closed Friday + 42 bps, recovering much of the losses from earlier in the week.

On the week, the MBS market closed -12 bps.

In the end – interest rate pricing is very similar to where we started the week. 30 year fixed mortgage rates are starting at 4.125% and 15 year fixed mortgage rates are starting at 3.25%. Interest rates have remained in a tight range for most of 2014 – and I expect that to continue this week with some possible rate improvement. We dodged a bullet with the Friday jobs report – that could have been the event that finally pushed rates higher than their current levels.
