Great News for Rates!

Looks like the Fed did it again! The announced that they will purchase 750 Billion dollars worth of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae Mortgage Backed Securities as well as an additional $300 Billion of US Treasuries. Wow, they have big pockets. Well this is good news for mortgage rates and we saw a .325 basis points to the fee improvement today. Rates are hovering around 4.5%. Many lenders decided to hold off on improving their rates today because they are already at their capacity of loans in their pipeline. The days ahead will surely be interesting.
