Fed leaves rates unchanged - why did rates worsen?; Football contest; Current Rates
October 30, 2015
Is anyone paying attention to rates? Did you notice that after the Fed Announcement on Wednesday rates that were “0” points prior to the Fed Announcement jumped up to the next 1/8 or were costing 1/2 a point? Huh?... the Fed says no rate hike in October and rates get a little worse. Why? Because bond traders fearing an imminent hike perhaps at Fed meeting in December sell off on their commodity causing rates to go up. Mortgage rates are tied to the bond market and rates move PROACTIVELY to what MAY happen in the future. Buyers should protect (“lock”) rates as soon as they have a contract and a closing date. Here is why – rates move up much more quickly than when they fall. If a buyer doesn’t lock a rate when possible and rates eventually go up I cannot help them. Conversely if a buyer “locks” a rate with me and rates fall 1/4 or more I can ask Wells Fargo to better your clients rate for free. Let me help your client through the mortgage process and I can assure you - the experience your client has will not be a bad one.
If you have a buyer using Wells Fargo but not going with a local rep, please do point them in my direction I will be happy to assist. ~Football contest WINNERS for Princeton Region Week Six and Seven respectively was Gough Thompson of Gloria Nilson and Karen Van Diver of Keller Williams in Princeton.
