Mortgage Market in Review
As global economic fears continue, we see investors making a flight to safety in US treasuries. This has caused the continued decline in mortgage rates.
The June Jobs’ Report will come out on Friday morning, and this will dictate what direction the rate market will go. This will also lay the groundwork for the Fed to make a decision on overnight lending rates later this month. For now, we are riding the wave of lower rates—but as we’ve seen in the past this trend can reverse itself very quickly, so stay tuned!
