The Mortgage Reports:
 
Mortgage Rates Back Above 7% to Start New Week
6/17/2024 3:20 PM
Mortgage rates moved modestly higher to start the new week.  With the average top tier 30yr fixed rate just under 7% on Friday, this meant a move to just over 7% today.   As always, keep in mind that a mortgage rate index is best used to capture the day to day  movement in rates as opposed to outright levels.  The latter ...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Remain Close to Recent Lows Despite Modest Bump
6/14/2024 2:27 PM
Today saw the average conventional 30yr fixed rate rise ever so slightly for top tier scenarios.  Most lenders are still quoting those scenarios just under 7%.  Depending on the specific details of any given scenario, rates range from the mid 6"s all the way up to the mid 7"s.  Unlike each of the past two days, there weren"t any maj...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Little Changed at Lowest Levels Since March
6/13/2024 2:35 PM
You"d have to go back to March 28th to see the average mortgage lender offering a lower rate on a top tier, conventional 30yr fixed scenario than they"re offering today.  The same was technically true yesterday and today"s rates were just a hair lower. That said, some lenders have done things differently over the past 24 hours due to yesterda...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Drop Sharply After Inflation Data (But Bounce a Bit After The Fed Announcement)
6/12/2024 3:10 PM
It was an incredibly high consequence day for the bond market and, thus, mortgage rates due to the confluence of two extremely important events. The first event was the monthly release of the Consumer Price Index (CPI), which is one of the two economic reports with the far more power to influence interest rates than any other.  The other repo...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Barely Budge For 3rd Straight Day, But That Should Change Tomorrow
6/11/2024 2:30 PM
Today"s mortgage rates were fairly close to yesterday"s at the average lender for the 3rd business day in a row.  Friday was the last day with any substantial movement when rates spiked following the upbeat jobs report.  Since then, the average lender has only moved by 0.01% on each of the past 2 days. The absence of movement made better...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Slightly Higher to Start Pivotal Week
6/10/2024 2:02 PM
There"s been a noticeable uptick in mortgage rate volatility over the past two weeks with a quick spike at the end of May, a nice drop in early June and then another spike last Friday following the jobs report.  Of course everything"s relative, so in objective terms, it was roughly a 0.30% round trip for conventional 30yr firxed rates. &n...Read More
 
Rate Optimism Put To The Test by Jobs Report
6/7/2024 2:32 PM
There"s a strong case to be made for the fact that interest rates had a sunny predisposition this week.  In practical terms, that simply meant giving more credence to rate-friendly news and trying harder to overlook unfriendly news. But the predisposition was put to the test in a major way with the week"s most significant economic report toda...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Hold Steady Ahead of Important Economic Data
6/6/2024 3:00 PM
The outcome of certain economic reports will determine whether the next big move in interest rates is higher or lower.  Two reports are more important than all others in that regard and we"ll get both of the them by next Wednesday. Tomorrow"s jobs report is the more pressing matter.  It may not be quite as important as next Wednesday"s C...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Improve Again, Despite Headwinds From Economic Data
6/5/2024 2:46 PM
The phrase "data dependent" is ingrained in the current bond market psychology for good reason.  Weaker trends in economic data will reliably cause the Fed to cut rates when the time comes.  This is particularly true for inflation-related data, but other reports still matter.  One of those reports came out this morning, but things di...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Another Step Closer to 3-Month Lows
6/4/2024 3:18 PM
For most lenders, you"d still see modestly lower rates on several days in mid May, but apart from that, you"d need to go all the way back to early April to see anything lower.  Said differently, today"s rates are fairly close to the lowest levels in 3 months. If the 3 month distinction is to be earned in the near term, it will come down to th...Read More
