WEEKLY RATE – Rates Improve to Lowest Levels in 5 Months

Rates Improve to Lowest Levels in 5 Months

October 2015

Interest rates had a great week last week with the Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market closing up every single day and closing the week up + 81 bps. With the improvement, interest rates are at their lowest levels in 5 months.

The week was highlighted by the September Non Farm Payroll report which came in well below expectations. Market analysts predicted job creation of 203k, but numbers were much lower at 142k. Job numbers were also adjusted down in July and August. Great news for interest rates, not great news for the economy.

On Monday, the TRID regulations finally go into effect which will affect the mortgage process with all lenders in the country. The main change is that the GFE and HUD settlement statement will be replaced by a different form highlighting rate, payment and costs. The new regulations also give a borrower 3 days to review the closing docs before signing. This will make the loan process a bit longer, but overall I feel the changes are good for the industry.

Rates neutral after FED Announcement / Employment Report on Friday

Rates neutral after FED Announcement / Employment Report on Friday

September 2015

Interest rates haven’t moved much since the FED announcement to not raise the Federal Funds rate last Thursday. The Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market traded down – 25 bps last week. This correction was somewhat expected after the MBS market went up so much after the FED announcement.

Interest rate pricing is still very close to their lowest levels in 4 months with the MBS market trading up + 16 bps so far on Monday.

Today the NY Fed President Bill Dudley spoke and stated that the FED will likely raise the Federal Funds rate by the end of the year. This week is employment week with the September Non Farm Payroll report due out on Friday. That report is always a big one and could cause rate volatility up or down depending on how the numbers compare to forecasts.

MORTGAGE RATES IMPROVE 4 DAYS STRAIGHT / LOWEST RATES I HAVE OFFERED THIS YEAR

MORTGAGE RATES IMPROVE 4 DAYS STRAIGHT / LOWEST RATES I HAVE OFFERED THIS YEAR

July 14th, 2014

After going higher every day the previous week, interest rates stayed the same on Monday and improved every other day of last week. The Mortgage Backed Security market closed trading + 65 bps, pushing 30 year fixed rates down to 4%, and 15 year fixed rates down to 2.875%.

Along with the recent rate improvement and my July interest rate special going out right now, this is the lowest rate pricing I have been able to offer in 2014.

When rates improve for 4 days straight, there is bound to be a correction so if you are looking at doing something – I would recommend locking on Monday.

This week will likely be more up and down with a lot of manufacturing reports due out and FED chief Janet Yellen testifying before Congress on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Have a great week!!

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.

RATES MOVE HIGHER WITH EMPLOYMENT REPORT / MARCH RATE LOCK SPECIAL

RATES MOVE HIGHER WITH EMPLOYMENT REPORT / MARCH RATE LOCK SPECIAL

March 10th, 2014

Rates moved higher 4 of the 5 days last week with the mortgage backed security market closing the week down – 94 bps. The week was capped with the February employment report which beat estimates for the first time in many months.

Non-farm payroll jobs increased 175k versus estimates of 139k. This shot the MBS market way down on Friday, closing at their highest levels since mid January. Unfortunately, this report usually points the direction for interest rates in the coming month. The good jobs report along with a FED meeting in March where the FED is expected to lower it’s bond purchases by another 10 billion, lead me to believe that this will not be a good month for interest rates.

My company is still offering a limited time March rate lock special. This special is off setting the rise in rate pricing with discount of:

.375 bps off conforming fixed loans
.5 bps off FHA/VA fixed loans

Please contact me if you would like to take advantage of the March rate lock special.

INTEREST RATES CREATE NEW LOWS FOR  2014

January 27th, 2014

Interest rates continued their hot streak ahead of the FED statement on Wednesday.  Mortgage interest rates pushed to new lows in 2014 with the stock markets having a big sell off and investors transferring money into safer investments.

This improvement in rates could be temporary depending on if the stock markets bounce back.  I would strongly recommend locking as these are the lowest rates I have seen in close to 2 months.

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) will release a statement on Wednesday that will likely have a major impact on rate pricing.  Experts are still torn on whether the FED will keep current bond purchasing levels or reduce them another 10 million.     

If the FED reduces its bond purchasing again, expect to see rates bounce back higher.

INTEREST RATES DROP TO 1 MONTH LOWS

January 13th, 2014

Interest rates finally gained some momentum after weeks of movement higher.

On Friday, the December employment report was released. Analysts predicted Non Farm Payroll Jobs to increase by 196,000 and the unemployment percentage to remain at 7%. The analysts vastly overestimated the increase, causing a huge movement in the bond markets and pushing rates lower by approximately .125%.

Non Farm Payroll jobs only increased by 74,000. Although the unemployment percentage dropped to 6.7%, much of that was due to people leaving the work force. Only 62.8% of the population is employed, which is the lowest level since 1976.

This is welcome news for rate watchers after interest rates have steadily climbed for weeks straight. With the FED tapering, the long term outlook is still for interest rates to climb higher. Now is a good time to consider locking in while price is improved.

TODAY’S INTEREST RATES / NEW .5% DOWN PAYMENT PROGRAM

TODAY’S INTEREST RATES / NEW .5% DOWN PAYMENT PROGRAM

January 6th, 2014

New Year

I hope everyone had a happy and safe New Years!!

Interest rates didn’t move much last week with the majority of traders on vacation. The MBS market closed + 18 bps, so mortgage pricing improved slightly.

On Friday, the December employment report will be released. More positive gains in employment will result in rates continuing their march higher.

My recommendation is still to lock as rates will likely continue to rise.

Have a great week!!

.5% DOWN PAYMENT PROGRAM – AVAILABLE NOW!!

This new program helps potential borrowers qualify for a new purchase home loan with as little as a .5% down payment.

The program works as follows:

96.5% LTV 1st FHA Mortgage
3% LTV 15 Year Fixed 2nd Mortgage

This is a great product for those borrowers that have decent credit and income, but don’t have the funds or gifts available for a 3.5% or 5% down payment.

Please call me for details or if I can help any of your clients with this new product.

FED TAPERS – RATES WILL GO UP IN 2014 WITH GSE FEE INCREASE

FED TAPERS – RATES WILL GO UP IN 2014 WITH GSE FEE INCREASE

December 26th, 2013

I hope everyone had a Happy and Safe Holiday!!

As many have heard by now – The FEDERAL RESERVE BOARD finally decided to taper their bond purchasing program – capping months of speculation on when the move would take place.   The FED will reduce it’s bond purchasing by 10 million per month. This relatively small taper as well as the market already taking into account that a taper would happen helped rates not go through the roof. Still mortgage interest rates are much higher than most have become accustomed to and will head higher in 2014.

GSE FEE INCREASE IN 2014:

Along with more tapering likely coming from the FEDERAL RESERVE BOARD in 2014, the GSEs FANNIE MAE and FREDDIE MAC announced fee changes to lenders last week.

These fee changes will raise the rate for most borrowers .125% – .375% once they hit lender rate sheets. After announcing the Fee change, FHFA director Mel Watt pulled back the implementation, announcing a delay in the fee change until he is able to further determine if this plan of action is the best way to move forward.

So at this point, the fee changes which raises the fees FANNIE MAE and FREDDIE MAC charge lenders to buy their loans is delayed after most expected these changes to hit lender rate sheets in January 2014.

If/when these changes going into effect – they will dramatically raise rate/borrower costs for most borrowers. Loan level pricing adjustments are certain characteristics of a customer’s loan that cause the loan to be more expensive. Some of the changes announced:

– Highest qualifying credit score will now be 800, currently any borrower with a 740+ credit score will get best mortgage pricing
– Cash out loans will increase in rate/costs
– Lower credit score borrowers will increase in rate/costs
– Investment property loans will increase in rate/costs

Below is a chart of the proposed loan level pricing adjustment for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in 2014.  Below is also a great article explaining the Fee changes:

So at this point these changes are delayed, but I guarantee fee increases are coming – but maybe not as drastic as the ones announced.

All signs point to higher rates in 2014.

It has been a great few years with record low mortgage interest rates. If you haven’t taken advantage, I would recommend locking in before rates continue to move higher.

Have a great week!!
