Mortgage Rates in Denver, CO: Market Update by RJ Baxter 2-28-2011 - 02/28/11 10:46 AM
Mortgage Rates in Denver, CO: Market Update by RJ Baxter 2-28-2011 After weeks of rising mortgage rates in Denver, CO and nationwide, rates improved significantly last week. However, the good news on mortgage rates in Denver, CO was for bad reasons as the Libya conflict sent oil soaring and cast doubt that the economic recovery will continue with higher oil prices. Although the US gets only a small fraction of it's oil from Africa and Libya, the fear resulting from violence in Libya and other Mideast countries sent oil higher and cast global doubt on the stability of economies. As a result money flowed into (0 comments)
Colorado Mortgage Rates Improve Slightly on Data - 02/15/11 01:18 PM
Colorado Mortgage Rates Improve Slightly on Data This week is bringing us a heavy dose of economic data, with some of the key releases today. One of the biggest market-movers was the release of retail sales, up 0.3%, which would normally be a good thing, but the markets were expecting a better number, and on the news, the stock market has faltered. The good news is that negative economic data has the opposite effect on Colorado Mortgage Rates, and rates have fallen slightly since the release. However, there were a few reports that came out good, but not great, which has (1 comments)
Mortgage Market Update for 2/14/2011 - 02/14/11 05:54 PM
Last Week in Review, by Lou Barnes, RateWatch Economic optimists remain firmly in charge of markets and the media, and the search for data to support their view. --- Wait! A Not-News flash! The administration has at last released its Fannie-Freddie study, which contains three plans that will not be enacted. Nor will any until housing and the financial system recover, which they may or may not given current underwriting. Home mortgages total more than the national debt, and we don't know what to do with that, either. Bi-partisan criticism of the GSEs will continue, as Fannie and Freddie are no (0 comments)

Realtors: What Are Your Top Three? - 02/04/11 05:35 PM
Over the years, working with many different Realtors on many transactions, I don't understand why this simple question is rarely asked. "What are the top 3 things that I can do to deliver a oustanding experience for both you and our clients?" More lenders should ask their Realtors this question! Instead of guessing, doesn't it make sense to ask? It seems many lenders think they are mind readers or understand what all Realtors want from their lender partners. This is a recipe for disaster. All Realtors are not created equal, and what might be the most important thing to one Realtor, may not even be (2 comments)
