Mortgage Rates in Boise & Nampa made a GREAT run lower last week, hitting 24 month lows on Wednesday, only to pull back on Friday. Today we are looking to make a run lower again home loan rates as the news media look towards the 3T again, with Trump Tweeting about Tariffs with a meeting with China coming up. If the meeting goes well, this could spell the end of good rates as any movement in tariffs easing with cause stock market to rally. On the flip side, if Trump storms out of meeting, and Tariffs stay in place we would see a sell off in Stocks and Interest rates would improve. Watch the news!

Mortgage rates were up for the Boise, Meridian and Nampa area, just slightly last week, and rates have hit a wall, and it is going to require some pretty big economic or political news to break through it. But for now, rates are at 18 month lows. Be on the watch for what the Federal Reserve says this week, if they indicate a rate cut, our rates will go up and the stock market will rally on that news.

More data and look at Canyon County! Nampa home prices up 16.8% and Caldwell up 17.7%. And we still have people waiting. Purchase a home in 2018, you now have 17.7% in equity. OR on the flip side, waiting to purchase, the home you wanted is now 17.7% more. Need a Realtor to help you out, call ME, I have some of the BEST Realtors in Idaho I can refer you to!!!

Mortgage rates slide again last week, although giving some of it back today. Pending the 3T's (Trump, Tweets & Tariffs), most of the economic news should be mortgage rate friendly this week. We are seeing conventional hovering in the high 3's and government (FHA/VA/USDA) in the mid to low 3's.

Mortgage Rates posted a very nice improvement last week, all based on Trump, Tweets and Tariffs. Economically, the numbers were good, but traders are fearing China's next move, and thus traders are selling stocks and putting their money into safe havens like Mortgage Bonds. We are carefully floating this week and the 3T will be influencing rates more than anything else.

Mortgage rates worsen towards the end of the week, and the trend is continuing today with the Stock Market rallying. But rates will bounce for the next few days in anticipation of Friday's Job Numbers. We are in locking mode, taking advantage of good rate gains and not gambling into the Jobs data on Friday.

Last week was a spectacular week for mortgage rates. As the Federal Reserve indicated that they will NOT raise rates in 2019 and may only raise rates 1x in 2020. Further concern about a recession is keep rates lower. Economic news is pointing towards a slow down, and past Fed Chairman came out today and actually indicated that the Fed may have to lower rates again. RATE ARE GREAT!

Mortgage rates managed to squeak out a small improvement last week, but we are starting out this week worsening, as Trump extended Tariff hold and it looks like there could be a Trade Deal with China. This could be bad for rates as a good trade deal with ROCK the Stocks and typically sends bonds yields higher, which will send mortgage rates higher.

Mortgage rates trended higher last week as rumors of a trade deal with China popped up. All eyes will be on China and trade deal. If we get a trade deal, Stocks should shoot up and mortgage rates should also rise. And also watch the Brexit news, this will be a rate influences as well.

With the sell off last week in stocks, it was anticipated at rates would improve nicely, but when it all settled, we have just a slight improvement. This week is HUGE as we have the Federal Reserve on Wednesday and LOTS of data on Friday, right before a major holiday. Will the Fed Raise rates (which would be good for us) on Wednesday, or wait until January? This week is going to be rough.
