Happy 2013! The new year is all about ritual and resolutions. Everyone plans to eat better, work out more, and get more organized or spend more time with friends and family. We’re all guilty of at least one of these, aren’t we? I wonder, did you, my mortgage-rate seeking friends, resolve anything fun this year? This year, I resolved to avoid a cliche resolution and promised to laugh more and worry less, and bring you the PMMS report every Thursday!
Welcome to the last Primary Mortgage Market Survey of the year. And fortunately for all you rate watchers, it ends on a good note! 30-year fixed rates drop this week, landing near record lows!
Greek philosopher Heraclitus once said “the only constant is change.” As much as we would like things to remain the same – our babies to stay little, our waistlines to stay small, our mortgage rates to remain low – they never do, or will. This week’s Primary Mortgage Market Survey is out and rates are both higher and lower than last week. It just goes to show how quickly these crazy low rates can change. If you’re not refinancing into a lower rate, you may miss out on your opportunity. There is never going to be a better time, because tomorrow never comes.
There are only a handful of things that can be measured in “record lows” – temperature, birth rates, sea ice…um…oh, mortgage rates! Of course! And this week, my friends, mortgage rates dropped! It wasn’t a dramatic drop by any means, but a drop is a drop and that means more money in your pocket. What are you waiting for?
Mortgage rates took a slight increase this week according to the Primary Mortgage Market Survey from Freddie Mac. Refinance to a lower rate and save today.
I was thinking about rattling off a bunch of things that I’m thankful for, and while I do have plenty in my life to be thankful about, I feel that’s getting overdone. Maybe overdone like how my mom’s turkey will probably turn out tomorrow? Regardless of how my Thanksgiving meal is going to be tomorrow, and I’m sure it will be delicious, one thing is for certain: the nationwide average for mortgage rates has never been lower in the history of the modern mortgage according to Freddie Mac’s weekly Primary Mortgage Market Survey.
After tiptoeing the record line for the past six weeks, mortgage rates set a new record low this week. Credit it to whatever you want: President Obama winning the election, Jay Cutler getting concussed, or Thanksgiving coming around the corner. The fact of the matter is that the nationwide average for mortgage rates across the country has never been lower according to Freddie Mac’s weekly Primary Mortgage Market Survey.
Do you wake up every morning and feverishly check Freddie Mac’s website around 10:00 a.m. ET to see what happens with the nationwide average for mortgage rates like I do? I was asking some team members about that, and they’re convinced that I’m the only one in the country that does it – but I say nay. You could just head over here every Thursday to see my world-renowned analysis of Freddie Mac’s weekly Primary Mortgage Market Survey.
Up, then down. North, then south. Higher, then lower. These opposites can be applicable to many things in life. The temperature in Michigan. My daily blood pressure. More relatable, however, is that these terms perfectly describe what has been going on with the nationwide average for mortgage rates according to Freddie Mac’s weekly Primary Mortgage Market Survey.
It’s Thursday afternoon, so you know what that means – it’s time for this week’s expert and genius analysis of Freddie Mac’s weekly Primary Mortgage Market Survey. On a scale of one to elementary school student finding out that there’s a snow day, I’m sure you’re probably sitting toward the latter. What happened to our lovely mortgage rates this week? Is this week a better time to refinance than last week? Who knows? You’ll never know until you read on, so let’s take a look at this week’s numbers for nationwide averages.
