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

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

In anticipation of today's Fed meeting, we have seen slight turbulence in the market.  The consensus over whether to lock in rates or float is mixed. If you are currently applying for a mortgage, I recommend watching today's numbers closely.

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 www.JasonGordon.info 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 Wednesday 12-12-2012 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 Tuesday with an IMPROVEMENT to pricing (and will typically warrant a pricing adjustment by most Lenders). Tuesday's IMPROVEMENT netted a change of 3 basis points (bps).

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