mmsc 12th manMortgage rates continue to be bouncing at very low levels while the markets continue to be very volatile. Here are some of the economic indicators scheduled to be released this week that may impact the direction of mortgage interest rates:

Tuesday, January 27: Durable Goods Orders; S&P/Case Shiller Home Price Index; Consumer Confidence; New Home Sales

Wednesday, January 28: FOMC Meeting

Thursday, January 29: Initial Jobless Claims; Pending Home Sales

Friday, January 30: Employment Cost Index (ECI); Gross Domestic Product (GDP); Chicago PMI; Consumer Sentiment (UoM)

Saturday, January 31: SUPERBOWL EVE

Sunday, February 1: SEATTLE SEAHAWKS vs Patriots at the SUPERBOWL!!! 

I have been trying to finish this post since Monday… and honestly, with so many people moving forward with refinancing or buying a home, I have not had time to do the weekly “rate update” of this post… so… I’m posting this now… a few days late… and if I have time to post rates this week, I will. When it comes down to it, as much as I love blogging, my day job (helping people with mortgages on homes located in Washington state) comes first.  If you want a mortgage rate quote for a Washington home, click here.
