Mortgage Rates Back Near Lowest Levels in Weeks

Posted To: Mortgage Rate Watch

Mortgage rates hit their lowest levels in more than a month last Thursday, but reversed course later that afternoon. With that, it looked like rates would continue settling in to a sideways range for April (not a bad outcome considering the abrupt rate spike seen in the first 3 months of the year). But now today, the bond market (the primary consideration for mortgage rates) bounced back into the same stronger territory seen last week. Most mortgage lenders updated their pricing by the afternoon, bringing the average conventional 30yr fixed quote back near last week's lows. Based on the ground covered so far this year and the risk for additional upward pressure in the future, merely holding steady is a victory . Days like today, where rates move unexpectedly lower, are pleasant surprises, but...(read more)

Econ Data / Events Fed MBS Buying 10am, 1130am, 1pm Market Movement Recap 08:36 AM Weaker at first then stronger in the overnight session.

UI Says HARP 2.0 Could Help Pandemic-Era Borrowers

Posted To: MND NewsWire

The Urban Institute (UI) is advocating for a streamlined refinancing program similar to the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) which aided many homeowners during the Great Recession to assist those impacted by the pandemic. HARP, which was used by more than 3.4 million borrowers between 2009 and 2018, offered simplified documentation, automated appraisals, no or reduced loan-level pricing adjustments, and mortgage insurance transferability to existing GSE (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) borrowers. Because home prices had dropped dramatically, leaving many borrowers underwater, eligibility was determined without regard to a mortgage's current loan-to-value (LTV) ratio. UI analysts Laurie Goodman and Edward Golding write that studies have estimated that HARP, by lowering monthly mortgage payments...(read more)
