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 Improve / FED doesn’t raise Federal Funds Rate

Rates Improve / FED doesn’t raise Federal Funds Rate

September 2015

Interest rates improved significantly on Thursday and Friday after the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) announced they would not raise the Federal Funds Rate. The Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market closed Thursday/Friday trading up +83 bps, and the week up +47 bps. Perhaps more important, the FEDs comments on the fragility of the economy lead some in the market to believe that the Federal Funds Rate could stay at 0% for some time.

30 year fixed rates are now available at 3.875% paying .79 points (4.03% APR), and 3.99% paying 0 points (4.05% APR). 15 year fixed rates are now available at 2.99% paying 1 point (3.19% APR), and 3.25% paying 0 points (3.28% APR). **Priced with 740+ credit score, rate and term refinance at 75% LTV**

With interest rates near 4 month lows – now is a great time to lock in.

Rates go up slightly – Fed makes statement on rates September 17th

September 2015

Interest rates went up slightly last week with the Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market closing the week down – 28 bps.

30 year fixed rates are now available at 3.875% paying .89 points (4.05% APR), and 4.125% paying 0 points (4.14% APR). 15 year fixed rates are now available at 3.125% paying .51 point (3.22% APR), and 3.25% paying 0 points (3.28% APR). **Priced with 740+ credit score, rate and term refinance at 75% LTV**

The major news this week will still be the Federal Open Market Committee’s (FOMC) statement at 2 pm on Thursday, September 17th 2015. In a recent poll, 46% of Wall Street economists are predicting the FED to raise the Federal Funds rate. I still don’t think they will but the uncertainty of when they will is certainly taking a toll on the market.

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 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

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 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 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 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.
