Mortgage Rates Snap Back to Lower Levels

Posted To: Mortgage Rate Watch

Mortgage rates reacted somewhat harshly to an incredibly strong jobs report last Friday. At the time, I noted that such a jobs report would typically have done much more damage to rates, but that the current environment mitigates its impact for a few reasons. First off, labor market strength is taken for granted to some extent, because it's been consistently good for about as long as it's even been consistently good! Just as important is the fact that trade war fears are dominating the market's focus. Depending on the outcome of trade negotiations, market watchers expect a fairly wide spectrum of market outcomes. Still, the jobs report has a more consistent track record of causing big market movement than any other piece of economic data. There will always be some obligatory response to a report...(read more)

Lots of Refinancing, So Why Are Servicers Losing Business?

Posted To: MND NewsWire

Black Knight continues to review, in its new Mortgage Monitor , how the effects of nearly a year of lower interest rates have ricocheted throughout the industry. This month's Monitor looks both at loan data from October and from the third quarter of 2019. Prepayments are still running at record high levels , increasing by what the company called "an eye-popping" 132 percent compared to the same time last year. The single month mortality (SMM) rate increased by double digit percentages for every one of the last 15 vintages of loans during September and October with some of the largest gains among loans originated during the housing bubble of 2005 to 2007. By product type, those loans guaranteed through GNMA (VA, FHA, USDA) once again had the highest payoff rate although they increased in October...(read more)
