The Mortgage Street Smarts of where mortgage interest rates are going (and why):

The following information is current as of Tuesday 5-22-2012 and will help you understand todays best mortgage rates. If you are a Buyer/Borrower who is still on the fence (or if you are a Real Estate Agent attempting to educate your "on the fence" Buyer), please review these trends and secure an historically low interest rate before it is too late.

The market closed Monday with a WORSENING to pricing (and will typically warrant a pricing adjustment by most Lenders). Monday's WORSENING resulted in a change of 9 basis points (bps).

(hint: upward activity is good, downward activity is bad)

7:00: Existing home sales for Apr: Consensus 4.60m, Last 4.48m.

7:00: Richmond Fed index for May: Last 14.

 

Advice:

Treasuries dropped for a third day before a report that economists said will show sales of existing
homes in the U.S. rose in April, weakening the case for the Federal Reserve to add to stimulus measures.

 

The central bank plans to sell as much as $8.75 billion of Treasuries due from March to September 2013 today, according to the Fed Bank of New York’s website. The sales are part of the program to replace $400 billion of shorter-term debt in its holdings with longer maturities by the end of June to help keep down borrowing costs.

 

So keep a close eye on Existing home sales, if come in under expectations we could see a bounce back in the market.

 

My position on MBS stays neutral.
