ar best real estate agent: Ventura County Mortgage Rates Hold Steady, For Now #TimeToBuy #ChrisBJohnsonRealtor - 11/19/18 11:39 AM

Equities took a nosedive earlier this week as the U.S. dollar strengthened to a 17-month high. A strong dollar is good for those importing foreign goods like cars or people looking for a strong exchange rate when traveling abroad. Conversely, a strong dollar weakens the value of domestic goods and is detrimental to profit for U.S.-based companies.
As the dollar rises, a shakeup in Brexit has caused the Sterling (pound) to plummet. The value of the Sterling dropped by 2 percent in the wake of key ministers, including U.K. Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab, leaving their positions during negotiations.

ar best real estate agent: Ventura County Mortgage Rates Take a Breather from Hikes #TimeToBuy - 11/17/18 01:16 PM

ortgage rates mostly held stable this week, a welcome relief to home buyers.
“Despite recent market volatility, mortgage rates remained steady this week,” says Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist. “The stability in mortgage rates reflects the moderation in inflationary pressures in the economy due to the lower oil prices and subdued wage growth. On the margin, lower energy costs are a positive for the home sales market, particularly for lower-middle income suburban buyers who spend proportionately more income on transportation costs.”
Freddie Mac reports the following national averages with mortgage rates for the week ending Nov. 15:
