Freddie Mac’s PMMS report was released today with commentary that it’s not reflecting the impact Janet Yellen’s comments had earlier this week, causing rates to drop. Remember, Freddie Mac’s PMMS report is an average of LAST WEEK’S mortgage rates…it’s old news if you’re using this for locking. However, it’s good data if you’re interested in trends.
Tomorrow morning we’ll have the Jobs Report which tends to impact rates for better or worse… stay tuned!
The bottom line is that mortgage rates continue to be at very low levels. If you are interested in buying or refinancing a home located anywhere in Washington state, I’m happy to help you!
