  • Mortgage Rates: Rally Resumes

    by AQ on June 08 2011, 4:35 PM
    After taking a brief breather early in the week, home loan borrowing costs have resumed their rally. With today's loan pricing improvements, conventional 30-year fixed mortgage rates are teetering on another shift lower in "Best Execution". CURRENT MARKET...
  • Mortgage Rates: Rally Takes a Breather

    by AQ on June 07 2011, 5:42 PM
    Mortgage rate watchers were reminded once again today of the threats they face when floating a loan on a shortened timeline. Although consumer rate quotes were able to recover from early morning weakness, just like they did yesterday, home loan borrowing...
  • Mortgage Rates: Debt Auctions Slow Rally

    by AQ on June 06 2011, 3:40 PM
    "The Wall" was seen wavering last Wednesday, teetering in its most precarious position this year. But we needed more proof that it was ready to be toppled before declaring it had been torn down. That confirmation was granted by an unexpectedly weak Employment...

  • Mortgage Rates: Seeking Confirmation

    by AQ on June 02 2011, 2:33 PM
    Yesterday we witnessed the second stage of a potentially significant shift lower in home loan borrowing costs. While these developments were encouraging, short-term reversals remained a constant threat. Today we were reminded of those short-term threats...
  • Mortgage Rates: Wall Ready to Tumble

    by Matthew Graham on June 01 2011, 5:55 PM
    We are witnessing the second stage of a significant shift lower in home loan borrowing costs. While these secondary signs are encouraging, they are just another step in what might evolve into a sustained rally in the bond market. That second step toward...
  • Mortgage Rates: High-Risk Event Ahead

    by Matthew Graham on May 31 2011, 4:51 PM
    The holiday shortened week ahead will culminate with a high-risk event: the release of the monthly Employment Situation Report on Friday morning. This economic event will likely offer solid guidance on the state of not only the broader economy but "The...
  • Mortgage Rates: Illustrating Positive Progress

    by AQ on May 27 2011, 3:56 PM
    "The Wall" absorbed a direct hit yesterday. A sizeable crack is now visible in the metaphorical structure that stands in the way of lower mortgage rates. And while the damages inflicted are not yet viewed as irreparable, "The Wall" is indeed on the verge...
  • Mortgage Rates: Tear Down This Wall?

    by AQ on May 26 2011, 5:11 PM
    "The Wall" absorbed a direct hit today. A sizeable crack is now visible in the metaphorical structure that stands in the way of lower mortgage rates. And while the damages inflicted are not yet viewed as irreparable, "The Wall" is indeed on the verge...
  • Mortgage Rates: Still Aggressive. Still Sideways

    by Matthew Graham on May 25 2011, 4:04 PM
    Home loan borrowing costs are still hovering near six-month lows but forward progress continues to be challenging. We've described the recent behavior of mortgage rates as "sideways" after running into "The Wall". This was the case once again today as...
  • Mortgage Rates: Sideways at Six Month Lows

    by AQ on May 24 2011, 3:47 PM
    Nothing new to report. Afternoon loan pricing weakness yesterday was recovered today. Home loan borrowing costs continue to hover near six month lows. "The Wall" is still preventing further positive progress. SEE A VISUAL OF "THE WALL" CURRENT MARKET...
  • Mortgage Rates: Illustrating the Wall

    by AQ on May 23 2011, 4:09 PM
    Home loan borrowing costs continue to hover near six month lows. Continued improvements have however been hard to come by since the recent rally hit a wall. We've entered a period of stagnation. Sideways behavior is apparent in the chart below of Consumer...
  • Mortgage Rates: Facing Resistance

    by Matthew Graham on May 20 2011, 4:43 PM

  • Mortgage Rates: Too Soon To Tell

    by Matthew Graham on May 19 2011, 3:34 PM
    Although borrowing costs rose today, the newly updated Best-Execution mortgage rate offering we discussed on Wednesday remains unchanged. While recent increases in borrowing costs are acting like spackle on "the wall" that had been preventing further...
  • Mortgage Rates: Loan Pricing Worse. Best Ex Unchanged

    by Matthew Graham on May 18 2011, 3:41 PM
    Although borrowing costs rose today, the newly updated Best-Execution mortgage rate offering we discussed yesterday remains unchanged. Unfortunately, the instances of lenders offering these more aggressive "Current Market" quotes are fewer and farther...
