Mortgage Rates Unchanged To Slightly Higher To Begin Week

Mortgage rates moved slightly higher in most cases on Monday, though some lenders were essentially unchanged from Friday's latest offerings. Despite the moderate weakness, with the exception of Friday, today's rates are in line with February lows, though the range has been narrow. 3.625% continues to be the most prevalent Best-Execution rate with reasonably priced "buy-downs" for those interested in paying more upfront cost in exchange for lower rate.

Mortgage Rates Bounce Back To Begin The Week

Mortgage rates regained a good amount of lost ground today as most lenders' rate sheets were in line with or better than last week's rates. The overall movement wasn't enough to justify a shift back to 3.5% Best-Execution from the recently more prevalent 3.625%, but it's a step in that direction. The differences in rates would be more noticeable in terms of the closing COSTS or lender credit as opposed to the rates themselves.

Mortgage Rates Eke Out Minor Improvements After Late-Day Reversal

Mortgage rates were essentially unchanged Today. On average, rates were slightly higher to begin the day, but an afternoon reversal in bond markets was sufficiently strong to prompt many lenders to release positively revised rate sheets. That tipped the scales back toward a slight improvement on the day with Best-Execution for 30yr Fixed, Conventional loans continuing to hold in the 3.375% to 3.5% range.

Mortgage Rates Improve On Average, But Not For Every Lender

Mortgage rates continued to inch lower on average after rising to the highest levels since September at the end of last week. There were no significant market moving events behind the move, but rather, rates markets are simply consolidating after last week's fast-paced changes. Those changes brought the Best-Execution rate for 30yr Fixed, Conventional loans to 3.5%, and for most lenders, that's where it remains, though the borrowing costs associated with that rate mostly moved lower today.

Mortgage Rates Moderately Improved On Fiscal Cliff Headlines

Mortgage rates moved slightly lower on Thursday after markets received their first Fiscal Cliff update of the week. Earlier this morning, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said that over the Fiscal Cliff "looks like where we're headed." Stock prices and bond yields fell steadily following that headline, but ultimately leveled off in the afternoon. Despite improved trading levels in Financial Markets, lenders maintained relatively more conservative pricing strategies, with only moderate improvements...

Mortgage Rates Higher This Morning, But Back To Unchanged In The Afternoon

Mortgage rates began the day in weaker territory , but were able to make it back to Friday's levels as most lenders improved pricing in the afternoon. Earlier weakness was primarily a result of the overnight sessions in Asia and Europe with several headlines accruing to the benefit of Stocks at the expense of bonds. Weaker bond markets tend to coincide with higher mortgage rates. But the weakness in bond markets and in the Mortgage-Backed-Securities (MBS) that most directly influence mortgage rates...

Mortgage Rates Hold Steady In Spite Of Improved Market Conditions

Mortgage rates were all over the board on Wednesday in terms of their movements relative to each other and trading levels in the Secondary Mortgage Market. Some lenders were priced slightly weaker while a few were notably stronger, but none of them so far off from yesterday's rates as to suggest a change in the prevailing conventional best-execution rate of 3.375%.

Mortgage rates continued falling this morning despite stronger-than-expected economic data. The trading session was punctuated by an early closure for bond markets owing to Hurricane Sandy and will be completely closed tomorrow. The secondary mortgage market began the day in stronger territory after European and Asian hours combined to gradually bring yields lower overnight.

Best Day For Mortgage Rates In Over A Week

It's a testament to the persistence of the recent move higher that mortgage rates experienced their best day in over a week on Tuesday. Reason being: the improvements weren't anything special and not at all out of line with an average " good day for mortgage rates ." It's just that that we've only seen one day of improvement since October 12th and today's gains are slightly better. Best-Execution for 30yr Fixed Conventional Loans remains at 3.375% among most lenders, though adjacent rates are viable...
