Mortgage Rates For May 21, 2019

Today’s Mortgage Rates:

Mortgage rates for May 21, 2019 are a bit higher today due to recent selling in the Mortgage Backed Securities market. The move higher is minimal and for the most part a fairly “normal” day-to-day adjustment the market sometimes makes.

30 year and 15 year fixed Conforming mortgage rates remain near their 2019 lows; FHA and non-conforming Jumbo mortgage rates also remain at very attractive levels heading into the last month of Spring.

Mortgage Backed Securities and Treasury Snapshot:

Mortgage Backed Security FNMA 3.5 started the day at 101.06 and the FNMA 4.0 coupon started the day at 102.67. The 10y Treasury yield opened the day at 2.43%.

The bond market started to selloff yesterday and it appears to be continuing into today. The good news is that the selling is not significant (at least not as of this morning) so the impact to mortgage rates has been minimal.
