Mortgage Rates For Jul 23, 2019

Today’s Mortgage Rates:

Mortgage rates are stable as Conforming, FHA and Jumbo fixed mortgage rates remain near recent lows. Yesterday’s announcement that a budget deal has been reached had no impact on bonds and mortgage rates despite the fact that the deal increased spending by nearly $400 billion.

The budget deal was reached between the President and leaders of Congress. It appears it’s going to be an uphill battle to secure support with the rank and file members of Congress. Why would a spending increase be a negative for mortgage rates? Because an increase in spending will result an increase the deficit which means an increase in the amount of money the government has to borrower. That means there will be an increase in supply which has a negative impact on bond yields and thus on a negative impact on mortgage rates.

Economic Data This Week:

Today we have monthly Home Prices and Existing Home Sales. On Wednesday we have the weekly Mortgage Market Index and New Home Sales report. On Thursday we have Durable Goods and on Friday we have the Advanced Q2 GDP report.

Home Prices:

Last months readings came in at a 5.2% increase (annual) and 0.4% increase (monthly). The reading came in at a 5.0% increase (annual rate) and a 0.1% increase (monthly). A disappointing report for housing and it appears we could see a decline next month. That being said; home prices have been going up for years and it would be healthy for the market if prices paused and pulled back a bit.

Existing Home Sales:

Expectations are for an annual rate of 5.33 million home sales and a 0.2% drop in month of month sales. Another disappointing report as the report showed a decline of 1.7% and 5.27 million in home sales (annual rate for 2019).
