Loan pricing may only be locked through a home loan consultant to be effective.  Rates will depend in part on your unique credit history and transaction characteristics. Please email or call for updated pricing at anytime as rates and pricing are subject to change. This information does not constitute a loan commitment or approval.
 

Wednesday’s bond market has opened in well in negative territory, extending yesterday’s late sell-off. Stocks are showing decent sized gains with the Dow up 94 points and the Nasdaq up 58 points. The bond market is currently down 17/32 (2.28%), which with yesterday’s afternoon selling should push this morning’s mortgage rates higher by approximately .500 of a discount point if comparing to Tuesday’s morning pricing.

Float / Lock Recommendation

If I were considering financing/refinancing a home, I would…. Lock if my closing was taking place within 7 days… Lock if my closing was taking place between 8 and 20 days… Lock if my closing was taking place between 21 and 60 days… Float if my closing was taking place over 60 days from now… This is only my opinion of what I would do if I were financing a home. It is only an opinion and cannot be guaranteed to be in the best interest of all/any other borrowers.
