- MBS RECAP: Bonds Catch a Break Heading into Quarter-End and NFP Week

Posted To: MBS Commentary

It's that time again. Or, at least it will be next Friday. After 2 months in a row of painful NFP reactions in bond markets, the big jobs report is back again. The Fed has probably done some work toward decoupling rate-hike expectations from payrolls, but even before that, the previous reactions still bigger than they should have been according to previous Fed rhetoric. Getting back to today's events, we only really had GDP and Yellen's afternoon comments. Yellen expressed concern about wages and inflation, but only if they weaken from current levels. If they don't, she stuck to the same recent script, saying the Fed doesn't need to see these metrics improve in order to hike rates. With next week's NFP in mind, Yellen also mentioned there is still "some way to go"...(read more)

Posted To: Mortgage Rate Watch

Mortgage rates had one of their least exciting days of the week today, moving just modestly lower from yesterday's latest levels. The trading range in underlying markets was exceptionally narrow, especially when compared to the week's previous activity. The final revision of 2014's 4th quarter GDP was released this morning, but it was close to forecasts and didn't produce much of a reaction. Fed Chair Yellen spoke in the afternoon, saying that a rate hike would indeed likely be warranted in 2015. By now, this is old news for financial markets. Few, if any, eyelashes were batted. 3.75% remains the most prevalently-quoted conventional 30yr fixed rate for top tier scenarios. For the lenders that moved up to 3.875% yesterday, today's modest gains didn't bring them any lower. The only improvements...(read more)

Posted To: MND NewsWire

The old maxim that a household rents only until it can afford to buy a home is apparently being stood on its head in a lot of housing markets. A study published on Friday by Zillow says that "rental affordability is as bad as it's ever been." Nationally, in fact, they found it is consuming nearly twice as much of a family's monthly income as would homeownership and in many markets that ratio is even higher. In the fourth quarter of 2014 Zillow found that, in the U.S. as a whole, households are spending 30.1 percent of their income for a rental while, with a Zillow Home Value Index (ZHVI) of $178,700 and historically low interest rates they would spend 15.3 percent on an owned home. According to Zillow's February Real Estate Market Reports, the ZHVI above reflects a 4.9 percent year-over-year...(read more)
