The Mortgage Reports:
 
Mortgage Rates Drop Sharply After Inflation Data
7/11/2024 2:53 PM
Rates were prepared to make a big move in one direction or the other heading into today"s high stakes inflation data.  Fortunately, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) came in quite a bit lower than expected, leading to a sharp decline in rates at the average lender.   30yr fixed rates had already trickled back below 7% yesterday.  ...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Tick Back Below 7.0%, But Just Barely
7/10/2024 2:44 PM
Mortgage rates have been in a narrow range for more than a month now with the average top tier 30yr fixed rate staying within striking distance of the 7.0% mark for the entirety. The number was 7.01 yesterday and it"s down to 6.99 today.  This matches the level last seen on June 14th and you"d have to go back to March to see anything much lowe...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Barely Budge, But That Will Change Soon
7/9/2024 3:08 PM
Mortgage rates are based on movement in the bond market and bonds haven"t been moving much over the past 3 days.  That"s resulted in very little change in the average mortgage rate from one day to the next, and zero change today.   Bonds can be inspired by a number of events and data points.  In the past, scheduled congressiona...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Gently Lower to Begin New Week
7/8/2024 2:50 PM
Apart from July 1st, mortgage rates have fallen every day so far this month.  The counterpoint is that only adds up to 4 business days so far.  The other counterpoint is that the improvements have been fairly modest over the past two days with the average borrower still likely to be quoted the same interest rate seen on Friday.  Th...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates End Week Lower Thanks to Jobs Report
7/5/2024 3:21 PM
The average top tier 30yr fixed rate may not be back under 7% just yet, but as of Friday, it is back below the levels seen last Friday.  That fact is at odds with major weekly rate surveys which showed a somewhat significant increase, but those surveys came out before today"s jobs report. Officially known as The Employment Situation, the jobs...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Move Lower After Weak Service Sector Report
7/3/2024 1:09 PM
"Data dependent" is one of the most common phrases heard from the Federal Reserve these days when it comes to rate-setting policy.  And while the Fed doesn"t directly dictate mortgage rates, the bond market tends to trade the same data that the Fed cares about. Today"s key report, the ISM Services index, isn"t quite at the top of the Fed"s li...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Finally Find a Ceiling, For Now
7/2/2024 3:48 PM
As is often the case with internet headlines these days, the headline overstates the reality on the ground--or at least over-dramatizes it.  Considering the last notable "ceiling" was seen less than a month ago and that the last short term ceiling, less than a week ago, the word "finally" probably doesn"t apply.  And then there"s the wor...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Near Highest Levels in More Than a Month
7/1/2024 4:09 PM
Mortgage rates continued their frustrating and somewhat perplexing move higher today, thus bringing the average lender close to the highest levels since the end of May.  Rising rates are always frustrating for those the housing/mortgage markets and prospective borrowers, but an ebb and flow is a way of life.  In other words, it"s perfect...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Are Actually Higher This Week
6/28/2024 4:48 PM
The week began with a distinct absence of interest rate volatility, but things changed in a big way by Friday--at least compared to the previous week which was exceptionally quiet.  In the bigger picture, however, it was just another week that felt volatility in the short term due to a surprising rate spike on Friday. Incidentally, the f...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Steady to Slightly Lower
6/27/2024 3:20 PM
Mortgage rates rose at the fastest pace in 2 weeks yesterday, but that wasn"t a very tall order considering an almost perfect absence of movement leading up to that.  Now today, a good amount of that small amount of damage has been undone. Bonds responded favorably to this morning"s economic data, which suggested the labor market could be in ...Read More
