Mortgage Rates Drop Again


Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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.

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.
