Maine Mortgage Rate Update for August 12, 2010

Maine Mortgage Rate Update for August 12, 2010

Here are some of the events affecting Maine mortgage rates today:

What Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS) Are Doing Today:

  • The price of the FNMA 30-Year 4.0% MBS coupon opened at 102.75 this morning – down 3/32 from yesterday’s close.
  • At 9:30 AM, the 4.0% MBS coupon was trading at 102.72 – down 3/32 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 0.125 points worse in price this morning as compared to yesterday.
