RATES CONTINUE TO IMPROVE , PAYROLL REPORT ON FRIDAY

Rates Continue to Improve , Payroll report on Friday

September 30th, 2014

Interest rates continued to steadily improve over the past week. The Mortgage Backed Security market (MBS) closing last week up + 35 bps, and closed Monday up + 14 bps.

The effect on interest rates is lower costs available at each rate.

30 Year Fixed rates settled in at 4.125% costing .1 points, and 15 year fixed rates remained at 3.25% with lower fees – .5 points.

The MBS and interest rate markets are still being helped by Europe’s economic situation and various geo-political concerns across the globe. On Friday – the most important economic report of all – the September non farm payroll jobs report will be released. I always recommend locking in before this is released because interest rates have the opportunity to move quickly depending on the results of job creation versus market expectations.

Mortgage Interest Rates Hit 2 Week Lows

Mortgage Interest Rates Hit 2 Week Lows

September 24th, 2014

Mortgage interest rate pricing is a fickle market to follow. Last week, mortgage interest rate pricing had moved higher – pushing mortgage interest rates to some of their highest levels in close to 4 months. The rates pricing wasn’t that much higher, but since interest rate pricing has stayed in a narrow range for most of 2014 – it was some of the highest pricing we have seen in a while.

On Wednesday, the FOMC statement came and went with no real surprise news. The FED will continue to tighten their monetary policy and will eventually raise the Federal Funds rate – but without an exact date mentioned.

Because many expected an announced date to raise the Federal Funds rate, interest rate pricing has gradually improved since Wednesday. In fact, interest rates have improved 4 days straight going into Wednesday and are at their lowest levels in 2 weeks.

30 Year Fixed rates have moved to a level where 4.125% is only costing a portion of a point. All the other Conforming, FHA and VA pricing options have improved as well. Now could be a good time to lock in as rates will usually rebound the other way after multiple day improvement.

Mortgage Rates Hit 2 week Lows

Rates Move Up 4 of the last 5 days – FED statement on Wednesday

Rates Move Up 4 of the last 5 days – FED statement on Wednesday

September 15th, 2014

After a modest gain last Monday of + 4 bps, Interest rates went up Tuesday through Friday with the Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market ending down – 71 bps on the week.

On Monday – the market closed + 15 bps, pulling up a bit higher over the 200 day average.

The big news this week is the FED meeting and subsequent Janet Yellen press conference. There is considerable belief that the FED will change the verbiage of the official policy statement – removing the notion that the FED would not hike rates for a considerable time after their asset purchasing ends.   This has caused anxiety and sell offs in the MBS market – the market most closely associated to Interest Rates.

I would highly recommend locking before Wednesday to protect yourself.

Currently rates are a bit higher but still in the general range they have maintained for most of the past year and 2 months.

RATES RISE – 30 YEAR FIXED TO 4.125%

September 8th, 2014

Last week had 2 important events for interest rates.

On Thursday – the ECB announced a less than expected plan and no specifics to deal with the European Union’s problems. Mortgage backed securities sold off – and rates rose.

On Friday – the August employment report was released and non farm job creation fell well below expectations. The market estimated 225k in job growth, but the report revealed only 143k new jobs. The problem is August is notoriously bad and hard to gauge correct job creation with the amount of seasonal employment in the month. The MBS market initially went way up, but then came back to close to even with the realization that these numbers will most likely be adjusted higher with most other economic reports showing improvement.

MBS ended the week trading down – 35 bps – pushing interest rate pricing a bit higher. 30 year fixed rates are now at 4.125% paying less than a point. Most other products didn’t change much on the rate, but the closing costs are higher for each rate.

I still believe there is not much to gain by floating a rate, and locking is the better option.

RATES RISE – 30 YEAR FIXED TO 4.125%

INTEREST RATES IMPROVE 7 STRAIGHT DAYS / VOLATILITY AHEAD

INTEREST RATES IMPROVE 7 DAYS STRAIGHT / VOLATILITY AHEAD

September 3rd, 2014

I hope everyone had a happy and safe Labor Day weekend.

Interest rates improved 7 days straight with the Mortgage Backed Security market trading higher every day last week and closing + 38 bps higher on the week. Unfortunately, the MBS market sold off some on Tuesday, selling down -27 bps and taking away most of the gains from last week.

Currently 30 year fixed rates sit at 4% paying .87 points, and 4.125% paying 0 points.

This week has a lot of economic data coming out and I would recommend locking pricing before Friday.

Thursday – the European Central Bank (ECB) will meet and many hope they reveal an asset purchasing plan that will push more money into the economy.

Friday – the all important August employment report will be released.

I think rates could go a bit higher this week and there will likely be more volatility this week than normal. Even so, I don’t see huge rate swings but most likely closing costs swings at any given rate. I still see rates trading in a relatively narrow range as they have done for most of 2014.
