Economic Data This Week:

Today we have the 1yr and 5yr Inflation Outlook report. The report comes out at 10am EST; if it ends up having an impact on mortgage rates I’ll update the post with that information.

Economic Data Next Week:

On Tuesday we have Existing Home Sales. On Wednesday we have the weekly Mortgage Market Index and on Thursday we have the weekly Unemployment Claims and New Home Sales. On Friday we have the Durable Goods report and the markets close early for Memorial Day.

As you can next week’s economic calendar is light. That means mortgage rates will be more susceptible to the news cycle. The US – China trade ware and economic conditions in Europe could play an important role next week.

Also things like obtaining cash out, lower credit scores, higher Loan-To-Value ratios, rental properties and the subordination of a second mortgage will cause in an increase in your mortgage rate.
