Mortgage Rate Update 6-25-13: Trends Projections & Today's Best Rates

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

We have had another volatile morning thus far today for Mortgage Backed Securities (stop me if you've heard this before). Consumer Sentiment, Durable Orders, and New Home Sales all came in stronger than expected. There will be a 2 Year Treasury Auction later this morning.

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.  To make things easier, I have also posted a quick report on How To Read The Charts Below.

Also, make sure to learn THE TOP 10 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT MORTGAGE RATES (to help understand the relationship between rates & fees/credits) along with 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). Remember, we all make better decisions in life when we have the actual facts to analyze!

Jason E. Gordon - Mortgage Rate Update -

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

The following information is current as of Tuesday 6-25-2013 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 Monday with a SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT to pricing.  Monday's SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT netted a change of 68 basis points (bps).

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

Market Commentary (Dan Rawitch)

The Chinese pledged that they will avoid a crisis and a little bit of good economic news...and everything is fine again. BUT IT"S NOT FINE! Rates are still searching for a bottom and next months numbers will look terrible based on the fasted increase in rates since 1962. This has not happened for 50 years and that is not normal! Hopefully we can find a bottom in the next couple of days, so we can start our rebound rally. THere will be one...

Keep your head above the chaos. This will hurt but it will get better!!!

Sell what you have...remind people that things can still get much worse and that rates are still AMAZING! It is all a matter of perspective...your job is to sell the correct perspective. Your job is NOT to sell hope
