Posted To: Mortgage Rate Watch

Get out your calendar. Flip, swipe, or glance back at May 29th. That's where we have to go to see mortgage rates any lower than they are today. After a delightful, but incredibly boring streak of mostly good days, rates finally swung for the fences. Actually, that might be a bit of a stretch depending on your perspective, but consider the following. Mortgage rates tend to be broken up in .125% increments. For the past several weeks (or more, depending on the lender), rates haven't moved enough for the actual interest rate to change. Instead, the upfront costs act like fine-tuning adjustments for any given rate. In other words, you might be quoted 4.125% on two different days, but with $1000 origination one day and only $500 the next. The rate is the same, but paying less for it means the effective...(read more)

Posted To: MBS Commentary

This morning's Employment Cost Index came out of left field with sobering news for anyone counting on a 2015 Fed Rate hike. Fed Fund Futures (which measure the likelihood of a hike by a certain time frame) went fairly wild after the report. Beforehand, they'd indicated the highest likelihood of a 2015 hike in more than a month and a half. Less than 30 minutes later, they showed the lowest chances of a 2015 hike in several weeks. Only the few weeks during the apex of the Greek drama saw less of a chance. So what was so game-changing about this data? Nothing complicated. Q2 wages grew at less than 1/3rd the pace of Q1. Connect those dots to people like Yellen saying things like these over the past 7 months: RTRS - YELLEN SAYS LABOR MARKET RECOVERY WILL PUT UPWARDS PRESSURE ON WAGES, PRICES...(read more)

Posted To: MND NewsWire

A Texas mortgage servicer has run badly afoul of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) for repeated violations of servicing rules . Residential Credit Solutions has agreed to pay $1.5 million in restitution to its victims and a $100,000 civil money penalty under a consent agreement announced on Thursday. CFPB has a laundry list of complaints against the company which bills itself as specializing in servicing delinquent and "credit sensitive" mortgages loans. Since 2009 approximately 75,000 borrowers have had loans transferred from other servicers to the company which has about $95 million in assets. This enforcement action covers Residential Credit Solutions' illegal practices prior to the January 2014 effective date of the CFPB's new mortgage servicing rules. CFPB said the company...(read more)
