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!!

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**

WEEKLY RATE – HIGHER RATES GET RELIEF ON MONDAY

WEEKLY RATE – HIGHER RATES GET RELIEF ON MONDAY

I hope everyone is having a fantastic week!!

In this weekly rate we discuss:

– The volatility in the interest rate markets

WEEKLY INTEREST RATE PRICING:

Last week, interest rates continued rising which has been the case for most of the past 2 months.

Interest rates were at their highest levels in 3 years with the Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market trading down – 102 bps. With the stock market on a bull run, there was less and less demand for bonds which contributed to the recent rise in rates.

On Monday February 5th, the stock market finally hit a snag and had a huge sell off (which is likely to continue on Tuesday). This pushed money into bonds and the MBS market closed up + 52 bps on Monday. Finally we saw some interest rate improvement and relief from the recent rise.

It remains to be seen if the stock market drop will start a larger trend towards a market correction.

Interest rates will remain volatile as long as there are large swings in the market.

In this weekly rate, we discuss:

– This week in interest rate pricing

WEEKLY INTEREST RATE PRICING:

Rates continued to rise last week pushing interest rates to their highest levels in 9 months.

The Mortgage Backed Security Market (MBS) closed last week trading down -62 bps which is negative to interest rate pricing. The good news is we finally received some rate improvement on Tuesday, January 23rd, which is a welcome site after a steady negative trending market.

It’s tough to say if interest rates have reached their peak but we are definitely in a rising rate environment thus far in 2018.

WEEKLY RATE – RATES TRENDING HIGHER

I hope everyone is having a fantastic week!!

In this weekly rate, we discuss:

– This week in interest rate pricing
– Higher Conventional, VA, and FHA Loan Limits for 2018

WEEKLY INTEREST RATE PRICING:
Interest rates have trended higher at the end of December and early January.
Rate pricing is near 6 month highs, but the good news is that rates are still within a .25% of the best rates of the past 6 months.
The Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market started this week down – 44 bps, but since has recovered some going into Friday, trading down -12 bps.
Mortgage Backed Securities and US Treasuries have a strong correlation to mortgage rate pricing. As bonds go down, rate pricing worsens.
The expected trend is for mortgage rate pricing to continue to slowly trend higher in 2018.
Below are today’s interest rates and links to get a free rate quote or apply online.
Have a great week!!


HIGHER CONVENTIONAL, VA, and FHA LOAN LIMITS FOR 2018

WEEKLY RATE – RATES TRENDING HIGHER

WEEKLY RATE – RATES MOVE HIGHER EVEN WITH POOR JOBS REPORT

WEEKLY RATE – RATES MOVE HIGHER EVEN WITH POOR JOBS REPORT

Interest rates continue to face pressure pushing the bond markets down and rate pricing up.

Rates moved to 2 month highs after the week jobs report on Friday, October 6th.

Typically, poor job creation in the US Non Farm Payroll report results in better pricing. The market viewed the numbers in a skewed way because large portions of the country were dealing with weather related issues that affected new jobs.

There was also a rise in wages reported which causes inflation. Inflation has been very low for some time and this is a big reason why mortgage interest rates have continued to stay low. If inflation increases, mortgage rates will go up with it.  

With economic pressure and the tapering of the FEDs balance sheet – I think that rates will continue to move slowly higher and highly recommend locking.

You can still get a 30 year fixed rate in the 3%’s for less than a point. Not bad, all things considered.

Below are today’s interest rates.  Have a great week!!

TODAY’S INTEREST RATES:

30 year fixed:       3.99% – .92 points (4.17% APR),       4.25% – 0 points (4.29% APR)

WEEKLY RATE – RATES REVERSE COURSE

Interest rates hit their highest levels in 4 months last week. Starting on Friday, we finally saw some strength in the bond markets which have helped rates reverse course.

The Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market closed the past 3 days up + 33 bps after finishing higher the past few weeks.

Currently 30 Year Fixed rates are still in the 3%’s paying a portion of a point.

WEEKLY RATE – Rates Reverse Course

WEEKLY RATE – Rates Go Deeper Into 2017 Lows

WEEKLY RATE – Rates Go Deeper Into 2017 Lows

Interest rates dove deeper into their lowest levels of 2017 and the lowest levels since November 2016.

Tension between North Korea and the United States is causing some investors to push funds into the safety of the bond market, which is certainly helping interest rates at the moment.  That being said, there is not much room for substantial improvement without a major event as the market is trading at the top of it’s average range.

The Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market ended last week trading up + 6 bps, and closed Tuesday up + 40 bps.

Moving forward, September could be a volatile month for markets.  The geopolitical events of international conflict and natural disasters in the US will continue to affect the market and interest rates.  Congress is now back in session and one of the first items on the agenda will be increasing the debt ceiling and avoiding a government shut down.  How close the government comes to being shut down will affect markets.  Many central banks across the globe will be releasing policy statements this month and the FED may start cutting it’s budget. 

It’s shaping up to be an eventful month for financial markets and interest rate pricing.

WEEKLY RATE – Rates Go Deeper Into 2017 Lows

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 Reverse Course and Improve

WEEKLY RATE – Interest Rates Inch Higher

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.

WEEKLY RATE – Interest Rates Inch Higher

WEEKLY RATE – INTEREST RATES REMAIN AT 2017 LOWS

WEEKLY RATE – Interest Rates Remain at 2017 Lows

Interest Rates remain at 2017 lowest levels.

We are now seeing rates below 4% paying less than a point!!

The market’s improvement is largely due to worry over Korea and Syria. Military / Political unrest typically involves investors moving funds to the safety of the bond market which helps interest rates.

The Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market closed last week up + 65 bps. Now is still a great time to take advantage of the lowest mortgage rate interest levels in over 3.5 months.
