Mortgage rates for June 14, 2019, are stable heading into the weekend with Conforming, FHA and Jumbo fixed-rate mortgages leading the way. Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARMs) are not as attractive right now and this pattern may continue as we head into the summer months.
Homeowners and homebuyers looking to lock in a low rate mortgage might want to consider taking advantage of the current market considering were near multi-year lows. When mortgage rates move higher they can move very quickly so make sure you understand the risks associated with not locking in your interest rate.

Economic Data This Week:
Today we have the Retail Sales, 1yr and 5yr Inflation Outlook along with Consumer Sentiment.
Expectations were for a reading of 0.6% growth after last month’s reading of -0.2%. The reading came in at 0.5% gain (below expectations) however the Mortgage Backed Securities and Treasuries sold off on the report due to the fact the previous month’s report was revised higher (from -0.2% to 0.3%).
1yr and 5yr Inflation Outlook:
This report comes out later in the day. If there is a significant impact on Mortgage Backed Securities I’ll update the post with that information. Last month’s reading was 2.9% for the 1yr Inflation Outlook and 2.6% for the 5yr Inflation Outlook.
Like the Inflation Outlook report, this comes out later in the day. If there is a significant reaction to bonds/mortgage rates I’ll update the post. Expectations are for a reading of 98.00 (which is lower than the previous reading of 100.00)
Economic Data Next Week:
On Monday we have the NY Fed Manufacturing report and the NAHB Housing Market Index. On Tuesday we have the Housing Starts, and Building Permits reports along with the start of the June FOMC (Fed) meeting. On Wednesday we have the weekly Mortgage Market Index and the FOMC decision.
It will be interesting to hear what the FOMC has to say considering what’s happening with the trade war. Many are concerned the economy is slipping due to the trade war and want to know what (if anything) the Fed will do to help prop up the economy.
They’re in a difficult spot and they will need to be cautious with what they say.
On Thursday we have the Philly Fed Business Index and the weekly Unemployment numbers. On Friday we have Existing Home Sales for May.
