Mortgage Update for the week of January 21, 2013

It’s another short week with the Martin Luther King Holiday observed today.

President Obama is also being sworn in for his second term. Many home owners are hopeful that President Obama is successful in getting HARP 3.0 and the “Obama Refi” aka #MyRefi programs that he pushed for in his first term, approved and available for those who need to refinance and do not qualify for HARP 2.0 or streamlined refinances, such as FHA, VA or USDA.

Here are some of the economic indicators scheduled to be released this week:

Tuesday, January 22: Existing Home Sales

Thursday, January 24: Initial Jobless Claims

Friday, January 25: New Home Sales
