Arizona Mortgage Lender

May 2018 – Team Green’s Newsletter

MAY 2018

 

 

 

 

Interest rates moved up some in April after staying stable for the majority of March.

We discuss these topics and more in Team Green’s May Newsletter.  Have a fantastic May!!

MY FAMILY:

We’re really trying to enjoy the weather before it gets scorching here in Arizona.

Lots of playing outside along with my son playing baseball 3 times a week.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m lucky that I live a mile from my office so I’ve been skateboarding to work when I don’t need my car for meetings.

Life is pretty good.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My wife got to enjoy 2 weekend girlfriend trips this month to Dallas and Austin – She’s so lucky J

While I also made a quick trip to Salt Lake City for a Manager’s meeting and the last snow board ride of the year.

We also got to enjoy a Gatbsy party for a family member’s birthday.

It was fun getting dressed up 20’s style and my wife looked smoking hot!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MY WORK FAMILY:

We decided to throw a Country themed week at our branch in April.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The goal was to listen to Country music all day and have some fun with some songs, our dress,   dances, and skits.

We accomplished our goal – check out some of our videos below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve always liked seeing funny chalk board signs in front of bars and restaurants.

I liked them so much, I decided to get one of our own and we’ve been having some fun with that too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lastly, we are hiring – if you know anyone looking to be a part of a great culture and team, please have them give me a call.

Have a fantastic May!!

We are licensed in AZ, CA, CO, WA, MI, and GA.

TODAY’S INTEREST RATES:

Mortgage rates slowly climbed higher in April after staying relatively stable during the end of February and through out March.

This broader trend is likely to continue which makes waiting to buy or finance a home very costly.

In the Phoenix market – we are seeing a combination of higher interest rates and home appreciation due to low inventory and high demand.

This is a double hit against people entering the home buying market as their payment is going up in 2 ways.

The chart below is a good indication of why we are urging buyers to not wait if they really plan on buying.

**The rates are a bit old but this does give a good illustration of the cost of waiting**

HEART OF SCOTTSDALE RMS HOME TOUR – NOVEMBER 2ND

WEEKLY RATE – Interest Rates Remain at 2017 Lows

WEEKLY RATE – Interest Rates Remain at 2017 Lows

Interest rates remain at 2017 lows and at their lowest levels since November of 2016.

The 2 speeches from major financial leaders Janet Yellen and Mario Draghi didn’t touch on any significant change in monetary policy for the FED or the European Central Bank.

Last week, the Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market closed the week up + 13 bps and also closed Monday up + 6 bps. This is pushing 30 year fixed conventional rates to 3.875% with less than a point. Another great value is a 20 year fixed conventional loan if you are interested in lowering your term some. I can now offer a 3.625% with less than a point, and 3.875% with 0 points.

The United States Non Farm payroll report is released the first Friday of every month. August 2017’s edition will be released on Friday and this report typically affect mortgage interest rates more than any other data for the month.

Have an amazing week and we’re always available if you need help with a new home loan purchase or refinance.

WEEKLY RATE – Interest Rates Reverse Course and Improve

WEEKLY RATE – Interest Rates Reverse Course and Improve

After moving up much of the prior week and a half, mortgage interest rates found some positive momentum, improving 5 of the last 7 days.

The Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market closed last week up + 34 bps and is trading this week up + 39 bps.  The bond markets trading up is a positive for interest rates.

Most investor eyes this week are on the announcement by the European Central Bank on Thursday.  The main topic of interest is how far away the Bank is from tapering it’s balance sheet.  I expect rate pricing to moderately improve before the announcement but the actual announcement is a high risk event.

Even if the announcement is seen as a positive for interest rates, I don’t see rates moving a ton lower than current levels without a major stock market correction or an unforeseen event that moves markets.  That being said, most indicators are that the stock market is over valued at the moment so a correction is not out of the question.

As always, have an amazing week and we’re always available if you need help with a new home loan purchase or refinance.

WEEKLY RATE – Interest Rates Inch Higher

Mortgage interest rates are beginning to trend slowly higher with the Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market trading down the past 3 weeks.

The Mortgage Backed Security market trading down last week – 2 bps, and is trading down this week – 34 bps as of Thursday morning.

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) met this week and did not raise the Federal Funds rate. They stated that although economic growth has slowed, they view it as transitory and they believed the labor market has strengthened. This verbiage points to a likely FED rate increase in June.

The April US Non Farm Payroll report comes out this Friday. As always, this report typically shapes the direction of rates for the upcoming month.
