Inquire within for current Mortgage Rates or questions with Guidelines

Overall, it is difficult to label one particular day as the most important of the week. The single most important report will likely be the Durable Goods Orders, but none of the week’s data has the potential to be a major market mover. If the stock markets move lower, we should see gains in bonds and improvements in mortgage rates. But, if stocks move higher, pressure in bonds is possible, leading to higher mortgage pricing. I believe there is still plenty of the recent flight-to-safety funds still in bonds that will probably move out if the stock markets continue to regain last week’s losses. This could lead to increases in mortgage rates if investors shift funds away from bonds and back into the stock markets. Therefore, I still recommend proceeding with caution if you are floating an interest rate.

If I were considering financing/refinancing a home, I would….

Lock if my closing was taking place within 7 days…

Lock if my closing was taking place between 8 and 20 days…

Lock if my closing was taking place between 21 and 60 days…

Float if my closing was taking place over 60 days from now…
