The Mortgage Reports:
 
Mortgage Rates Pleasantly Stable Despite Some Bond Market Weakness
4/24/2024 3:10 PM
The average mortgage lender was able to offer conventional 30yr fixed rates that were very close to yesterday"s levels despite bond market movement that suggested a bigger spike.  In a vast majority of cases, if the bond market is in weaker territory compared to the previous day, rates will be higher in proportion to that weakness. In today"s...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Lowest in a Week
4/23/2024 3:12 PM
Mortgage rates are driven by day to day changes in the bond market.  Bonds are focused on the Fed and the economic data that shapes Fed decisions.  Today"s data isn"t necessarily big on the Fed"s radar, but the market reacted due to its implications on other data. Specifically, the S&P Purchasing Managers Indices (PMIs) came in lower...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Essentially Flat Just Under 5 Month Highs
4/22/2024 3:01 PM
Mortgage rates began the new week at almost exactly the same levels seen at the end of last week.  There were no major events or economic reports to cause volatility in the underlying bond market, but bonds were able to improve modestly by the end of the day. In general, bond market improvement leads to lower rates.  The catch, in this c...Read More
 
The Case of The Disappearing Rate Cuts
4/19/2024 3:30 PM
The Fed expected to be able to cut rates 3 times in 2024 as recently as March. Financial markets agreed. But the data that"s come out since then has everyone singing a different tune.  This week"s data was more of an afterthought compared to last week"s. The chart above pertains to Fed rate expectations, and that"s not exactly the same as l...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Higher Today, But Not Quite as High as Tuesday
4/18/2024 2:36 PM
Tuesday marked the highest mortgage rates since November, capping a mini surge that began after last week"s inflation data. After a moderate improvement yesterday, rates moved back up toward (but thankfully not above) the recent highs today.  Financial markets reacted to stronger economic data and comments from Federal Reserve officials regar...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Finally Win One
4/17/2024 3:14 PM
Mortgage rates moved lower today after hitting the highest levels since mid November yesterday.  Some lenders were down as much as an eighth of a percent, which is on the bigger side for a day-over-day change for conventional 30yr fixed rates.  As nice as it is to see a big improvement, it"s important to understand the nature of the move...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Back to 7.5%
4/16/2024 3:56 PM
The bad times keep rolling for mortgage rates with the average conventional 30yr fixed rate back up to 7.5% according to our daily index.  This is quite a bit higher than the major weekly indices for a few reasons.  First, the weekly indices haven"t been updated for the current week yet.  When that changes, because they are averages,...Read More
 
After Months of Relative Calm, Rates are Starting to Look Panicked Again
4/15/2024 2:55 PM
In 2023, there were multiple examples of mortgage rates moving up by roughly half a percent in a relatively short amount of time (1-3 weeks).  Since the big shift in November, we"ve only seen one similar example and it was more of a technicality (a sharp drop in rates followed by a correction in early Feb), until today. Rates were already o...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Move Lower After 2-Day Rout, But Underwhelmingly So
4/12/2024 3:54 PM
Wednesday was one of the worst days in decades in terms of single-day upward movement in mortgage rates.  Thursday added a bit more insult to the injury.  The resulting levels were the highest since November 2023.  We should be thankful, then, that Friday managed to push back in the other direction, but it would be easier to be a lot...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Are Actually The Highest Since Mid November
4/11/2024 3:14 PM
Wednesday"s Consumer Price Index caused a brutally fast spike in mortgage rates.  It wasn"t notable for taking us to exceptionally high levels (October 2023 was much higher), but it was one of the biggest single-day jumps.  Either way, it easily took the average lender back to highest levels since November 2023.  Today was very tame...Read More
