Maine Mortgage Rate Forecast for August 2, 2010
Here are some of the events affecting mortgage rates in Maine today:
What Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS) Are Doing Today:
- The price of the FNMA 30-Year 4.0% MBS coupon opened at 102.41 this morning – the same as Friday’s close.
- At 9:30 AM, the 4.0% MBS coupon was trading at 102.19 – down 7/32 from its opening.
Remember, on mortgage backed securities (MBSs), as the price goes down, the yield goes up – and so do mortgage rates. I expect that Maine mortgage rates will be up to 0.250 points worse in price today as compared to Friday.
