Mortgage Rates End Week Near Best Levels
Fri, 20 Sep 2019 22:14:29 GMT - What a difference a week makes! At the end of last week, things were pretty grim, with mortgage rates having just seen their worst single week since 2013. The uplifting caveat at the time was that such bouts of nastiness are not that uncommon in the wake of ultra strong performances (such as the entire month of August--the best single month since 2002 if you can believe it!). In other words, last week was a correction to August's impressive strength. With that in mind, this week turned out to be a correction to last week's correction! There was no way to be sure, but we were hoping it was overdone and that bond traders would step in to buy bonds (which pushes rates lower) in response to the big move. That's exactly what happened and it resulted in measured improvements throughout the week.
Think The Fed Cut Mortgage Rates? Think Again
Thu, 19 Sep 2019 21:44:27 GMT - Here is exactly what yesterday's Fed rate cut did to mortgage rates: ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! No Fed rate cut (or hike) will EVER do ANYTHING directly to mortgage rates because the Fed doesn't set mortgage rates. Don't let the caps-lock fool you into thinking I'm some angry guy with a keyboard who's simply ranting for some self-serving purpose. Of all the people you'll talk to today and of all the articles you'll read on this topic, you should trust me the most. I don't say that lightly or very comfortably, for that matter. It sounds terribly cocky, but in this case, it's also terribly honest. For more than a decade, if markets are open and mortgage companies are quoting rates, I've religiously been tracking trends, patterns and plain old boring statistics. I use actual wholesale rate sheets from
Home Equity Loan

Home Equity Loan

What is a 'Home-Equity Loan'

A consumer loan secured by a second mortgage, allowing home owners to borrow against their equity in the home. The loan is based on the difference between the homeowner's equity and the home's Current market value.  The mortgage also provides collateral for an asset-backed security issued by the lender and sometimes tax deductible interest payments for the borrower. 

Also known as "equity loan" or "second mortgage".

BREAKING DOWN 'Home-Equity Loan'

A home-equity loan is basically a line of credit secured by your home. When the line of credit is drawn down, the financial institution providing it places a second mortgage loan on your home until the loan is paid off, after which the you can use the loan to finance other purchases. However, if the loan is not paid off, your home could be sold to pay off the remaining debt. Interest rates on such loans are usually adjustable rather than fixed and lower than standard second mortgages or credit cards.

 

Home Equity Loan or Line or Credit?

Should you get a home equity loan or a home equity line of credit, known as a HELOC? With a home equity loan, you get a lump sum. A HELOC provides you a revolving credit line, much like a credit card.
