Rates improved today after a sharp decline in stocks!
I was able to lock in a customer today at 4.875% on a 30 year fixed mortgage. The loan amount was $275,000 and it was a purchase loan for their primary residence. They put 20% down and had a 746 credit score. The APR was 5.023% and the origination fee was .875%.
The good news in this crazy market is that mortgage pricing yields are returning to normal after over a month of basically no difference between 5% and 6%! Higher rates are once again offering more yield to the lender so low / no-cost loan options will be back available at decent rates.
Tomorrow might be a good day to lock in based on market movement. There is a good chance rates will open very low tomorrow morning and could come back during the day.
