The Dragon Is Friendly For The Moment: Interest Rates May Hit Lowest Since November 2010

The Dragon Is Friendly Today: Mike in Tucson, AZ mortgage lenderInterest rates may hit their lowest point since November 2010.

The Federal Reserve Bank this morning cancelled their bond auction, catching the Bond Market by surprise.  Initially, there was an official "No Comment" on the cancellation by the Fed, but shortly thereafter, the reason was given as "market volatility."  I've seen nothing on Bloomberg yet, but expect something shortly.

Of course, the stock market volatility today is sparked by the nuclear situation in Japan.

Demand for the 10 year bond picked up overnight, and then spiked on news of the cancellation of the bond auction.  (Interest rates fall when demand for bonds rises.)

The Dragon Is Friendly Today:  What it means to you as an Agent or Borrower

If you're a Real Estate Agent, get on the phone to your borrowers.  Everyone has been predicting higher interest rates, and many buyers are on the fence.  It's time to jump in the game again.

If you're a buyer, this is the time to lock in an interest rate! 

If you're buying in Arizona, call me at (520) 349-9090.

I did notice that interest rates are under 5% right now for 30 year conventional financing. The buyers need to get off the fence now!

Hi Mikey - good information and thank you for the send out card - way cute.  Not sure I want to spend $99/year for that upgrade, however.

Mike - it is always interesting to get updates on the interest rates! When they went up a bit it was also great seeing how many people came out of hiding and started buying!!!!
