WEEKLY RATE – Interest Rates Trending Up Going into 2016

WEEKLY RATE – Interest Rates Trending Up Going into 2016

December 2015

After some improvement in mortgage rates after the FED announcement, rates have begun to trend up.

The Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market closed last week down – 24 bps and is trading down -18 bps this week.

Currently interest rate pricing is close to the highest levels since July of 2015 and most analysts believe mortgage interest rates will rise in 2016.

Have a Happy and Safe New Years!!

Rates Move Up Slightly from Prior Weeks 5 Month Lows

Rates Move Up Slightly from Prior Weeks 5 Month Lows

October 2015

As is normal with interest rates, once rate pricing moves one way for an extended period of time, we will see a correction back. Rates hit 5 month lows on Friday October 2nd, but since then have steadily moved a little higher almost every day. The Mortgage Backed Security market closed 4 of the 5 days last week down, closing the week trading down – 34 bps.

Interest rate pricing is still very good, but is about .5 pts higher in pricing at the same rate then the prior week.

Not a ton of new data out this week so I expect interest rates to remain relatively stable barring an unforeseen event.

TRID mortgage regulations are now in place. Gone are the GFE and the HUD and now we have the Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure. The new documents are meant to make it easier for a borrower to understand their loan. Borrowers now also have a 3 day period to review loan documents before they are legally allowed to sign.

Rates Move Up Slightly from Prior Weeks 5 Month Lows

Today’s Rates – 30 Year Fixed at 3.75%

Today’s Rates – 30 Year Fixed at 3.75%

December 8th, 2014

Interest rates are improving today – as of 12 pm Pacific – the Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market is trading up + 35 bps.

This is welcome news after interest rates went higher 4 of 5 days last week. The MBS market closed down – 67 bps last week. The week was capped by a stronger than expected November employment report where non-farm payroll job creation rose 321,000 compared to estimates of 230,000.

Most US economic reports have been positive recently – but rates have held up remarkably well due to economic weakness in other parts of the world. Although the FED’s Quantitative Easing program is coming to an end, many expect the European Central Bank (ECB) to initiate an asset purchase program which would be beneficial for interest rates.

The Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market closed up + 46 bps on Friday alone – taking back the losses from earlier in the week and closing the week positive + 25 bps.

On Monday the bond market pulled back taking some of the gains from Friday – closing down -31 bps on the Day. The bond Market is closed for Veterans day. Thank you to all the Veterans out there that have served our country.

THE RETURN OF THE NO APPRAISAL REFINANCE

With Fannie Mae’s new version of their underwriting system DU – mortgage bankers and their clients are seeing a welcome change in the return of the PIW

PIW stands for Property Inspection Waiver.

When running a Fannie Mae Approval – sometimes Fannie Mae’s system grants a PIW which allows us to complete the loan without getting an actual appraisal.  These No appraisal refinances are not for upside down homes, lower credit borrowers, cash out loans, etc.  They are typically granted when there is a decent amount of equity based on average prices in the area and they are usually granted for higher credit score borrowers.

The purpose is to allow someone that has equity and great credit to get a loan without having to physically get an appraisal. 

This is a welcome return – as it allows well qualified customers to complete a refinance without an out pocket expense and we can usually close the loan very quickly.

Rates Improve after Employment report – but then pull back

LOCK IN AT THE LOWEST RATES SINCE JUNE OF 2013

Lock in at the Lowest Rates since June of 2013

October 14th, 2014

Interest rates continued their strong move lower last week and this Tuesday – dropping approximately .25% over the past 6 days.
The Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market closed last week trading up + 84 bps, and Tuesday trading up + 38 bps – pushing interest rates to the lowest levels we have seen since June of 2013.

Interest rates had been gradually improving and then we saw big movements lower in the past week and a half.  Typically when rates go one way for an extended period of time – they will eventually get a strong correction the other way.

My recommendation is to lock in now. You will be locking in at the lowest rates in 1 year and 3 months – not bad.

Lock in at the Lowest Rates since June of 2013

RATES HIT 1 MONTH LOWS

Rates Hit 1 Month Lows

October 7th, 2014

Interest rates continued to gradually move slower last week. The Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market finished the week trading up + 45 bps – pushing interest rates in line with their lowest levels in a month.

On Friday, the September employment report was released. Job creation beat all expectations but the good news was interest rates stayed firm and the MBS market only closed down – 9 bps. This is an interesting development, as typically a strong labor report results in interest rates moving higher in a hurry.

The MBS market is also doing well this week, closing Monday up + 19 bps.  Right now we are hitting a level of resistance in the bond market where over the past year – rates haven’t moved much lower than. This trading will likely continue unless a major event propels the bond market lower.

There is not a lot of economic data coming out this week – so interest rates should remain relatively stable for the rest of the week. 30 year fixed are currently at 4.125% paying .125 pts, and 15 year fixed are currently at 3.125% paying 1 point.

Rates Hit 1 Month Lows

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.

Rates Continue to Improve , Payroll report on Friday

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.

INTEREST RATES HIT 1 MONTH LOWS / EXPECT VOLATILITY WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY

July 1st, 2014

Interest rates improved last week after Monday with the Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market closing up + 38 basis points.

We are still trading in a narrow range where the market usually doesn’t go above or below it’s moving average. When the bond market does pass a certain range – that is when you can see a lot of movement in interest rates. Until then, the rate range is somewhat secure with rates staying within a .125% window.

The end of this week will likely be very volatile with a smaller amount of traders due to early vacations. On Wednesday the ADP Private Payroll will be released, and on Thursday – the most important statistic in the US economy – the Non Farm Payroll report will be released. These reports usually create a lot of market movement anyways. When you add in a small amount of traders – the market could move quickly in a very short period of time.

I would recommend locking before Thursday to be safe.

INTEREST RATES CONTINUE TO IMPROVE – 30 YEAR FIXED DOWN TO 4.125%

INTEREST RATES CONTINUE TO IMPROVE – 30 YEAR FIXED DOWN TO 4.125%

May 27th, 2014

Mortgage interest rates continue to slowly improve – currently at their lowest levels in 11 months.

The Mortgage Backed Security market closed Monday, May 27th, trading up + 15 bps. The MBS market closed up + 30 bps last week, and up + 40 bps the week before.
There are a few main reasons that interest rates are continuing to show improvement.

The Ukraine situation is still volatile and military conflict is a possibility. Investors seek safety through US treasuries and Mortgage Backed Securities which helps improve interest rates.

Some experts believe that the stock market is trading much higher than it should based upon the actual performance of the companies. Some hold the view that a large correction could be in the future, which increases investment into US treasuries and MBS.

Lastly, it is expected that the European Central Bank will add another stimulus next week – which like the US’s Quantitative Easing – is a positive for mortgage interest rates.

All of these situations are helping rates move lower, but most experts don’t believe rates will go much lower than they are right now. The market hasn’t allowed 30 year fixed rates to drop back into the 3%’s since they rapidly moved up 12 months ago when the FED said they would likely taper their stimulus package.

So we are in high risk, low reward situation. Rates may go a little bit lower, but it’s very unlikely they will drop below 4%. Most experts believe rates are going to move higher – the question is when it will happen. With rates being at their lowest levels in 11 months, I lean towards the safe side and recommend locking.

Last week, I missed my first weekly update in quite a few years. My wife Sarah and I welcomed our 2nd child into the world – Dylan Rose Green. She was born at 12:20 AM on May 19th. She is healthy and we are truly blessed to have 2 great kids.
