Mortgage Rate Update 11-9-12: Trends Projections & Today's Best Rates

Mortgage and Lending with AmeriFirst Financial Inc, San Diego, CA NMLS 259027

Great day yesterday for mortgage rates with a whopping 36 basis point improvement. What does this mean? Consider a $300,000 mortgage with an option to pay 1 point ($3000) at the beginning of the day. With this 36 basis point improvement, that same interest rate may have dropped $1000 in cost by the end of the day with many Lenders across the country.

This daily mortgage interest rate report is designed to provide Borrowers & Real Estate Profesionals with factual data regarding where rates are at any given time and what trends are propelling current mortgage pricing on any given day. Feel free to browse the library and research historical rate updates dating back nearly 2 years at whenever desired.  Also, make sure to learn about THE TRUTH BEHIND MORTGAGE QUOTES to better understand the relationship between up-front closing costs and mortgage interest rates so you don't get duped by clever advertising campaigns.

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

The following information is current as of Friday 11-9-2012 and will help you understand today's 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 Thursday with a  SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT to pricing (and will typically warrant a pricing adjustment by most Lenders). Thursday's  SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT netted a change of 36 basis points (bps).

Stocks in Europe and U.S. equity- index futures declined on concern political wrangling will slow
the global recovery. The euro weakened for a third day against the dollar and Treasuries advanced. 
The Stoxx Europe 600 Index lost 0.5% at 7:25 a.m. in New York. Standard & Poor’s 500 Index futures slipped 0.3%, signaling the gauge will extend its biggest two-day drop in a year.

The U.S. risks entering a recession should policy makers fail to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff of automatic tax increases and spending cuts next year, Fitch Ratings said. “Markets continue to trade on a weak note given lingering fiscal cliff concerns and worries about whether Greece will get
the funding it needs to meet debt payments,” Nick Verdi, a currency strategist at Barclays Plc in Singapore, wrote in a report today.
