At The Open:
Mortgage rates will start the day better than yesterday afternoon as both Mortgage Backed Securities and Treasuries are set to rally at the open. In the overnight session of trading the 10y yield pushed below 2.70%. While yields and rates have pushed higher in recent days the overall movement has not been that bad considering the plunge from 3.25% down to 2.54%. We’ll have to see what happens but it appears the market might be stabilizing which is a good thing for mortgage rates. Lenders much prefer a stable market than a volatile market. The 10y auction yesterday was strong which has helped keep a lid on bond yields moving up.
Mortgage Applications Survey:
After a dismal report last week (which was not surprising) the Mortgage Purchase and the Mortgage Refinance Index both jumped significantly. It appears more and more people are taking advantage of the low mortgage rates that are available. Those looking to refinance their current mortgage, that purchase a home in the last 6-12 months, are especially seeing some benefit with where current rates are at.
Today we have Wholesale Inventories, weekly Unemployment and Wholesale Sales. Tomorrow we have the very important Consumer Price Index (CPI) report which could be a market mover. As for next week; there are no major economic reports on Monday. On Tuesday we have the Producer Prices Index for December, Core Producer Prices Index, and the NY Fed Manufacturing Index for Jan. On Wednesday we have retail sales for December, Export prices and Import prices for December. Thursday it’s the Building Permits report along with Housing Starts and Philly Fed Index for January. To finish out the week we have Industrial Production, Consumer Sentiment and the 1yr and 5yr inflation outlook.
Currently We Are Seeing:
30 year fixed mortgage rates below 4.25%, 20 year fixed mortgage rates below 4.125% and 15 year fixed rates below 3.625%. Please keep in mind that mortgage rates adjust daily; sometimes they adjust multiple times in a day when the bond market is volatile.

Home Loan Rates In California:
As we move further into 2019 home loan rates in California are sitting at levels better than what was being offered just a few short months ago. The lowest refinance rates in California can usually be obtained with top rated mortgage companies (see Better Business Bureau). You’ll want to avoid companies with no rating or a bad rating with the Better Business Bureau. If a company has a bad rating with the BBB there probably is a good reason as it takes a lot of complaints from customer to push your BBB rating lower.
Yesterday the President met with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. The meeting end with Trump leaving in the middle of the meeting and then tweeting the meeting was “a total waste of time”. The government shutdown affecting mortgage rates is not really an issue right now. However the longer this goes on the greater impact it will have on our economy. Hundreds of thousands of Americans are not getting a pay check right now and that means they’ll be spending less.
