Purchase transactions still closing with pretty solid consistency and even more encouraging is the number of purchase transactions that I am seeing coming dated after April 30....in other words there are still tons of buyers out there that are not 100% "handout seeking" and are looking for low rates on a well priced homes to give themselves a solid investment for their financial future. That's good news to all of us.
Mortgage backed securities have been on a roller coaster, news that should pump stocks up and deflate our bonds are immediately countered with just a strong of an influence in the other direction. It's all timing and it's all the experience of the loan officer monitoring those rates.

Rates won't be low forever, the Fed will be selling soon to get their balance sheets back in line and when that happens, supply will go through the roof and prices will plummet.
