mortgageporter-economyThere is not a lot on the economic indicator dance card this week, with no reports released yesterday or today. Mortgage rates remain very low. Here are some of the economic indicators scheduled to be released this week:

  • Wednesday, April 22: Existing Home Sales
  • Thursday, April 23: Initial Jobless Claims; New Home Sales
  • Friday, April 24: Durable Goods Orders

Mortgage interest rates are improved  in fee compared to last week’s mortgage rate post.  As I write this post, 8:00 am on Tuesday, April 22, 2015, I’m quoting:

  • 30 year fixed: 3.625% (apr 3.731%) priced with 0.705 points with  a principal and interest (p&i) payment (taxes and insurance not included) of $1,824.21..

The home buyers have excellent credit with credit scores of 740 or higher and the transaction is closing by May 29, 2015 or sooner.
