  • Mortgage Rates: Reprieve Gone. Opportunities Remain

    by Matthew Graham on August 29 2011, 4:18 PM
    After a brief but sizeable rebound on Friday, Mortgage Rates experienced an equally sizeable rebound back higher, though we hope it will be equally brief. Markets suffered from a pronounced lack of activity today with numerous participants out of commission...
  • Mortgage Rates: Moment of Reprieve

    by AQ on August 26 2011, 4:21 PM
    After setting new lows last Thursday, mortgage rates drifted higher this week...that is until today when consumer borrowing costs improved sharply. This can be seen in the chart below.... If the note rate line is moving up, the closing costs associated...
  • Mortgage Rates: Slight Reprieve. High Risk Tomorrow

    by Matthew Graham on August 25 2011, 4:22 PM
    Yesterday, a recent losing streak for loan pricing boiled over and Mortgage Rates rose across the board. Today offered a slight reprieve to yesterday's losses , but only in terms of improved borrowing costs. BestExecution rates were unchanged. Our ongoing...
  • Mortgage Rates: Losing Streak Continues

    by Matthew Graham on August 24 2011, 4:34 PM
    Yesterday, we noted pressure building on BestExecution rates. Today, things boiled over unfavorably and the loan pricing losing streak extended into a fourth day. Mortgage Rates got hit hard enough that yesterday's quotes may not even be available today...
  • Mortgage Rates: Losing Streak in Progress

    by AQ on August 23 2011, 1:50 PM
    Consumer borrowing costs rose marginally today, marking the third consecutive session where mortgage rates have ticked slightly higher. Although we're not yet looking at an unfriendly development in BestExecution rate quotes, the pressure is definitely...
  • Mortgage Rates: Quiet Day Leaves Lifetime Lows Intact

    by Matthew Graham on August 22 2011, 4:05 PM
    Despite a volatile back-drop, mortgage rates continue to hover near all-time lows. Monday's offerings are little changed from Friday (in some cases, not at all), with BestExecution Mortgage Rates remaining at the same levels and only minor differences...
  • Mortgage Rates: Illustrating Lifetime Lows

    by AQ on August 19 2011, 2:22 PM
    Despite a volatile back-drop, mortgage rates continue to hover near all-time lows. The reason we bring up volatility again is, although many lenders have greatly improved their consumer rate quotes over the past two weeks, there is an increased amount...
  • Mortgage Rates: Still Historically Low

    by Matthew Graham on August 18 2011, 4:11 PM
    Today is one of those days where the importance of NOT paying attention to the Treasury market for mortgage rate indications is strikingly clear. Although there are a few instances of lower-than-2% benchmark 10yr Treasury rates in the ancient past, the...
  • Mortgage Rates: Hovering Near All-Time Lows

    by AQ on August 17 2011, 4:02 PM
    Borrowing costs improved once again today. Mortgage rates are hovering near all-time lows. Though many lenders have greatly improved their consumer rate quotes over the past two weeks, we must point out an increased amount of variety in what individual...
  • Mortgage Rates: Opportunity Still Knocking

    by Matthew Graham on August 16 2011, 4:54 PM
    Borrowing costs improved today and rates remain in all-time best territory. Mortgage rates were perhaps slightly better last Wednesday, but either day is so much better than anything else that’s been offered this year that it shouldn’t affect...
  • Mortgage Rates: Opportunity Knocks

    by AQ on August 15 2011, 3:31 PM
    Mortgage rates re-entered record-low territory last week, one-day after the Federal Reserve announced it would continue lending cash to banks at a 0% interest rate.... explicitly for the next two-years . Since then consumer borrowing costs have risen...
  • Refi Roadmap: A Locked Rate Isn't a Closed Loan

    by Julian Hebron on August 15 2011, 11:27 AM
    Rates are bouncing around near record lows set last October and consumers are looking to seize the opportunity. There's always a rush by consumers and loan agents to lock rates on dips, and that practice is all the more prevalent when extreme daily rate...
  • Mortgage Rates: New Record Lows

    by AQ on August 11 2011, 4:40 PM
    Consumer borrowing costs ticked higher today in another volatile trading session (multiple reprices experienced). Mortgage rates are still in record setting territory though. This is apparent in the chart of Consumer Rate Quotes below... If the note rate...
  • Mortgage Rates: Sharp Improvements

    by AQ on August 10 2011, 5:44 PM
    We experienced some wild price swings today but consumer borrowing costs improved in the end. In many cases those improvements were significant. CURRENT MARKET *: The BestExecution 30-year fixed mortgage rate is between 4.00 and 4.250%. More lenders are...
  • Mortgage Rates: Even More Nuts!

    by Matthew Graham on August 09 2011, 4:30 PM
    We've used the word "nuts" in the past to describe extra volatile movements in the mortgage market, but today takes the cake. Many market records were broken following today's Federal Reserve FOMC meeting. The net effect was positive for consumer borrowing...
