MORTGAGE RATES SLOWLY RISING FROM RECORD LOWS / COULD PUSH LOWER THIS WEEK.

MORTGAGE RATES SLOWLY RISING FROM RECORD LOWS  /  COULD PUSH LOWER THIS WEEK.

February 20th, 2012

The MBS Market closed last week trading down (- 13 bps).   Rates continue to slowly inch higher with increased optimism towards the economy and the recent rally in the stock markets.

The stock market is at a 9 month high but concerns still remain that the market is higher than it should be.  Over 85% of stocks in the New York Stock Exchange are trading above their 50 day moving averages, even though profit reports have been less than stellar.  In Europe news, a meeting on Monday to try and finally resolve the Greek debt issue was not successful.  (2/21/12 UPDATE – they have now negotiated a deal)

I’m thinking we may see the stock market push down this week, which could push mortgage rates lower from their recent move up.  

I recommend customers serious about getting a mortgage being ready to lock on short notice this week.

MORTGAGE RATES REMAIN AT RECORD LOWS

MORTGAGE RATES REMAIN AT RECORD LOWS:

December 19th, 2011

The bond market closed last week trading up (+ 66 bps). Another good week for the bond market but we have reached a level where rates aren’t really going any lower, regardless of the bond market. Some lenders have raised their pricing a little bit, even though the bond market is trading up.

The Mortgage rate market is still tied closely to the debt crisis in Europe. If investors continue to invest in the safety of US treasury bonds, mortgage rates should remain at their current levels.

Below are rates available today paying a point or less:

30 year fixed: 3.875% paying .55 points, 4% paying 0 points
20 year fixed: 3.75% paying .77 points, 4% paying 0 points
15 year fixed: 3.25% paying .658 points, 3.375% paying 0 points
5/1 ARM: 2.5% paying .87 points; 2.875% paying 0 points
