Mortgage rates for June 27, 2019 are higher as we head into the last few days of June. Tomorrow we have some important economic data (more on that below) and we should start to hear some G20 Summit headlines that may impact bonds and mortgage rates before the weekend.
The good news is that mortgage rates remain near their multi-year lows.

Jumbo Mortgage Rates
Mortgage Backed Securities and Treasury Snapshot:

Economic Data This Week:
Today we have the final Q1 GDP reading and Pending Home Sales. To finish off the week on Friday we have the Personal Income report, Core PCE, Consumer Inflation Expectations, Consumer Sentiment, and the Chicago PMI report.
Q1 2019 Final GDP Report:
Expectations were for a 3.1% reading and that is exactly what came in. While the final GDP reports receive a lot of news coverage their importance to bond markets and mortgage rates is usually minimal unless the report was significantly above or below expectations.
The reason why the final quarterly GDP reports have little importance is:
- The data is from three months ago
- Before it comes out other economic reports have given a current picture of how the economy is doing
When it comes to GDP estimates that plays a bigger role with bond markets and mortgage rates but the “Final” report generally has no impact on Mortgage Backed Securities and mortgage rates.
Pending Home Sales:
Expectations were for 1.00% increase and the reading came in at a 1.1% increase. Last month’s report was revised higher; from -1.5% to +3.9%.
This is good news for homeowners and a much better report than the New Home Sales report. It appears the lower mortgage rates are helping home sales however we’re not seeing that in New Home Sales (per the previous release).
Increasing Home Sales should help support current home valuations and if mortgage rates remain low during the summer months it would not be surprising to see home sales continue to grow before we enter the fall.
