Hundreds of thousands of people in the lending industry, their borrowers, and vendors are grappling with the refi price hit announced Wednesday evening by FHFA Director Calabria. From the Carolinas I received this from Rhonda M. “We are into the J’s now for Atlantic named storms. Wonder if Hurricane Jalabria might work?” In one sense it is merely a transfer of money directly from lenders to the Agencies and the FHFA. When refinancing from 4 percent to 3 percent what added risk is there in this rate term product? None, so why the “refi tax”? We’ll survive, of course, just as we have done with RESPA, TRID, and the 10 basis point increase to gfees that we’re still paying for after Congress directed the FHFA to implement due to the “Temporary”...(read more)

MBS Day Ahead: Are Rates Ready To Be Done With This Correction?

Posted To: MBS Commentary

First thing's first, any conversation about rates in a mortgage market context would be incomplete without considering this week's regulatory drama. Specifically, FHFA just more than DOUBLED G-fees for refinances. Read all about it in the mega recap HERE . This surprise move threw lenders for a loop and most of them pulled pricing back significantly for obvious reasons. In other words, there was/is a disconnect between MBS movement and rate sheet changes and it could persist for another few days depending on the lender. Nonetheless, I'd generally expect that most of the disconnected movement between markets and rates would have happened yesterday. If the broader bond market is able to find a supportive ceiling for rates, the mortgage market should benefit from that as well. So is...(read more)
