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.

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.

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.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
