Have Home Loan Rates Found a Bottom?

"Yeah I'm Free, Free Fallin'"... Free Fallin" by Tom Petty The old adage of "Stocks go down, Home Loan Rates go down" didn't work this past week. Stocks started the week with the Dow Jones Industrial Average fallin' nearly 1,000 points through Tuesday. Typically, as Stocks decline, we see home loan rates improve as the investment dollars find their way into Bonds. That was not the case this week. Bonds and home loan rates hardly moved. Why?

Available Mortgage Credit Jumps to 10-Year High

After falling in September, the amount of available mortgage credit jumped to a new post-housing crisis high in October, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association. The MBA’s Mortgage Credit Availability Index rose to 186.7, up 2.5% from 182.1 in September and up from 181 a year ago. An increase in the index indicates a loosening of mortgage credit standards.

Jumbo Mortgage Loan Basics

The majority of homes around the country are purchased with the aid of traditional, conforming mortgage loans. Yet when home prices rise quickly, many markets have price tags that are too high for these standard loans. Enter the jumbo loan.   What is a Jumbo Loan? Jumbo mortgage loans are those that have a higher dollar amount than the limits set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government-sponsored enterprises that buy up home loans and sell them on the secondary market.
