Mortgage Rates Drop Again

17 posts in this topic

Some program rates dropped up to .5% at the opening of the market today on the news that the Fed's were going to buy up 200 billion in Securities, many of which are backed by mortgages, to free up the illiquidity in the credit markets. Some programs saw a rate drop of up to .5%, and the FHA 30 year fixed was at 5.25% while the Conforming 30 year touched 5.375% on certain scenario's. With the volatility of the market, we have no idea how long they will stay this way so if any of you have been contemplating a refinance or purchase, now may be the time. Contact me for a quick, easy rate quote.

Yes, we offer almost every loan program available. Government or conventional products, we've got them all covered.

Peter has been working a refi for me, and he found better rates than I even hoped, and he has been very good at answering my many questions. I have gone through the mortgage process many times now, and so far Peter seems to have the answer that make the most sense, and he has worked to ensure I get best rates, I know that.

For those who are questioning whether to refi or not, give him a call. I am glad I did. I will be saving lots of $$ per month...

Thanks for the kind words Box, it's been a pleasure working with you. On a side note, I was able to get 5% on an FHA 30 year fixed mortgage today which is unbelievable. This is a straight up rate with no discount points to buy the rate down smile

If anyone has any questions on what the difference between FHA, VA, USDA, and Conventional programs are, please shoot me an email or call me. You may be surprised in what you are eligible for.

Just a quick update, 30 year rates are now at 5% on certain programs, and 4.875% for the 15 year. If you are contemplating a purchase or refinance, now is the time as the rates are the lowest they have ever been.

FYI - Deitz, I think he is out of town right now, so his reply might take a bit smile

I'm back and hard at work. Rates are touching 4.5% on a 30 year fixed on certain scenario's and loan sizes. Don't know if they will go down more, but we have seen a negative change in rates from this morning with the mortgage backed securities giving up some gains and dropping in price.

If anyone wants a scenario run, just shoot me an email and I'll let you know what I think.

All lock desks are currently closed. Mortgage backed securities prices are taking a big hit right now. When the dust settles, I would imagine rates will increase by at least .25%.

Rates have taken a turn for the worse and we have lost .375% in the rate from this morning. We are still historically low and near 5% so it's all relative. We may see an improvement tomorrow morning but who knows.

Jump on the roller coaster, rates have dipped again. With the drop today in the stock market, Mortgage Backed Securities have seen an increase in price which drives rates down. Best case scenario on a conventional 30 year is 4.75% and 4.5% on the 15 year. The FHA 15 and 30 year are at 5% with no origination fee. The window may be short (again) so if you're contemplating, give me a call. If you are looking to lower your payment or rate, on average it makes sense if you have $150,000 or greater loan amount and can drop your rate at least 1%, other scenario's can work but smaller loan amounts require larger decreases in rate to make them worth it.

How does it work when you refinance, is there a flat rate or does it depend on the loan?

Thanks for the kind words DD, right back at ya. As far as a rate on refinancing, it depends on a number of factors such as credit score, loan to value, loan product, and type of transaction (purchase, rate or term refinance, or cash out refinance). There can be a large variance in rates depending on these factors.

Email recieved Wiggums, I look forward to helping you.

    •     Free market Republicans????  HAHAHA,!!!!
    • Please God, make Keith Ellison the head of the DNC
    •   Doubtful we would have seen it by now. The bigger issue has always been possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian opps to influence the election - and who knew what and who ordered what. That's the big fish. You just have to be patient, all in due time Uncle Bill.
    •   I didn't waste a vote on him..   The garbage can had as much a chance of winning.   You owe the brave voters of Trump a great debt of gratitude for saving this country from hillary..   That's one big beer you owe the "trumpers"...   Bigly....  
    • Picked up some track at FF and put it on the floor and ramp. Also added a couple sections of e track on the wall to hang tie downs etc. Doesn't look like I'm going to get any use out of it this year but will be ready for next year. Plan on taking out track on floor in summer as it can get slippery and going to put in a couple wheel chocks for motorcycles.
    • July 2016   This was the first time 3 of us had ever been to the ocean and the first time any of us had been to the Pacific. Man, that water was cold!    
    • There's a blessing on the ground.  It's coming down.  It's coming down
      Snow pains on the motor veinsSnow Days
      Keeps your business on the ground
      It's coming down
      Slow day for the teacher
      And her wheels are spinning now
      On account of winter, Mrs. Braintree
      All the roads are closed
      And the stores are loot for vagabonds
      It's coming down
      Go home!

      It's coming down
      Snow lays on the chainfields
      There's a blessing on the ground
      It's coming down
      If your lanes are crammed with children
      There's a blessing on your town
      On a lucky Monday, Mrs. Braintree
      All your lanes are waxen silver
      And the stores are loot for vagabonds
      It's coming down
      Go home! Go home and take a snow day, Mrs. Braintree!

      Mrs. Braintree, you're a chilly northern woman
      Go home from yonder bus stop
      Because there's a blessing on the ground
      Mrs. Braintree, it is written
      When the snows come over Dixie
      All the roads are closed and the stores are loot for vagabonds.

      It's coming down
      Snow lays on the chainfields
      There's a blessing on the ground
      It's coming down
      If your road's patrolled by children
      There's no order to be found
      On account of winter, Mrs. Braintree
      All the roads are closed
      And the stores are loot for vagabonds
      It's coming down
      Go home!   I think Reb lives next door to Mrs Braintree.  She's a chilly northern woman.
    •     I think he's actually you and delcecchi's hero, judging by the number of times you guys bring him up....
    •   So did you get a guarantee when we started and lost the war on drugs or is this your version of a double standard? I am saying here is a reasonable solution with the positives outweighing the negatives. This is especially true when compared to the current model that has never worked.   Benefits to ending the war on drugs.
      1. Huge savings enforcement and prison $$$ that can be used on treatment. 1 Trillion spent so far with no results.
      2. Police can focus their man hours on violent and other criminals. 82% of drug arrests are for possession. 3. Creating jobs and collecting taxes on drug sales. Imagine that save tax $$ on enforcement and increase revenue, win win. 4. The legit business model puts most of the dealers, gangs and cartels out of business. The very fact that drugs are illegal makes them expensive because of the risk involved, taking the money out of the black market essentially puts these people out business and that is a good thing. Keeping drug illegal keeps the money flowing their way and nothing we can do other than legalization will stop this.

       
      Says the guy who wants to double down on 45 years of failed policy and poor judgment.
      What is even more mind blowing is that free market republicans want to continue failed big gov policies at a huge cost to the taxpayers. We already have legal drugs from big pharm killing people in record numbers to go along with alcohol and tobacco deaths so it is not like we are venturing into unknown territory here.
