Efinity Report 2017-03-17 00:19:00

As we indicated with our November 10th Blog, https://efinitygroup.blogspot.in/2016/11/if-you-currently-are-or-have-been.htmlthe Federal Reserve voted yesterday (Wednesday March 15th) to again raise the key interest rate one-quarter percentage point. This is just the first of three hikes we anticipate for 2017. The rate was increased one-quarter percentage point just three months ago in December 2016. This was the probable outcome following encouraging employment figures in February. We believe this consecutive increase marks a turning point in policy. The Fed raised the rate only twice in the past decade. Wednesday’s decision quickens the pace, signaling the potential for more aggressive action as the year...

Trump's victory speech in the early hours of Wednesday included a pledge to spend on rebuilding America's infrastructure — a plan that should stir economic growth and mean substantial new debt. These comments might be what the US economy needs to get moving again after 4+ years of relatively flat growth. They are also inflationary in nature. Which is bad for borrowing rates.This new exacerbates the fact, mortgage application volume fell 1.2...

Why Wait??

Mortgage rates have been historically low for several years, but a surprising number of borrowers are still not taking advantage even though rates fell again at the start of this year. How many? Close to 7 million. After the Federal Reserve raised its target interest rate in early December, the common expectation was that mortgage rates would rise.
