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.

    • Nope, they've always been much too spineless to receive my vote.   I've always been more libertarian minded, but without the crazy parts. You have to include human and societal behavior into the equation to get ideals to actually work in the real world.      
    • 34 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY today and I am eating strawberries and drinking lemonade, more about that later. Wednesday I did make it to the Resort and I spent the afternoon relaxing. I went in search of Elmer as I saw his truck parked out back. I went up to his room and tapped on the door only to hear what I thought was a loud grunt. I took that to mean "Come in" and so I did. I opened the door and was hit by a wall of heat. Elmer was sitting in a wood rocking chair, with a book in hand looking over a pair of cheater reading glasses at me. "Close the door" he commanded and I did. "Sit" he said and I did in an overstuffed chair in front of the window where a stream of sunshine was pouring into the room.   I sat back deep in the chair and relaxed. I let out some air and sat back even deeper into the cushions and I told myself this is what I was needing. I spoke out loudly to Elmer "Wife call?" And Elmer nodded his head yes. I then closed my eyes and just relaxed, Elmer already knew why I was there. I was almost ready for a nap when I felt then saw a hardback book fall into my lap. I reached down and picked it up and saw it was the new Clive Clusser book that I had bought Elmer for Christmas. I know this because I has written inside the book "Merry Christmas Elmer from Bobby." Also inside the book was a punch card from the Masterbaiters Shop for suckers, I think it was being used as a book marker. The book had not been read yet and I looked at Elmer and he said "Knock yourself out" When I bought the book for Elmer I was going to buy myself a copy to but had not gotten around to it.   I opened the book up and bent back the hard book covers slowly and then I went through the book every hundred pages or so and bent them back. This is how you break the binder on a hardback book without breaking the book. I heard the tapping of a glass on wood and I looked up to see Elmer offering me a empty glass and he said "Open the little fridge" and I did. Inside I found a cold carton of pink lemonade and a plastic container of strawberries. I took them both out and set them down on the little wood table between us. "Well pour" Elmer said and so I did. A few minutes later I was a few pages into Clives book and I was sipping on cold lemonade, eating strawberries in a warm room that was no longer hot with sunshine on my shoulders in a place far far away. Just the way I wanted to be the day before a visit to the hospital   I spent the afternoon and went late into the evening reading until I was done with the book. I closed it with a satisfied feeling like all of Mr. Clusser’s books leave me with. Strawberries and lemonade were long gone but it did not stop me from tipping my glass over my open mouth where I hoped I might get just one last drop but I did not. I said good night to Elmer and went down stairs where Chuck gave me a ride back to the cabin. Today finds me writing this story with a bowl of strawberries close at hand and a glass of lemonade. Not the same as summer but good enough for this time of year.   Sunshine Ray is a little off in his forecast. I did go to the hospital in sunny weather and I got all my tests done in record time. Every department I went to there was no waiting and I zipped right through. Today finds me in the den and although Ray’s forecast called for clouds he missed out on the rain that has been falling. Sitting here I can hear the water coming off the eves to make splattering sounds as it hits the snow on the ground. Ice dams on the roofs are gone, each time one slides off the roof Duncan starts barking and running around the cabin. Glad they are off the roof and even better they have come down when no one is beneath them to get hurt. Ray also forgot to mention that when it is not raining the snow fog moves in and if and when it gets cold out we are going to have ice every where here at Lake Iwanttobethere
