Maine Mortgage Rate Update for September 3, 2010

What Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS) Are Doing Today:

  • The price of the FNMA 30-Year 4.0% MBS coupon opened at 103.25 this morning – the same as yesterday’s close.
  • At 9:30 AM, the 4.0% MBS coupon was trading at 102.69 – down 13/32 from its opening.

Remember, on mortgage backed securities (MBSs), as the price goes down, the yield goes up – and so do mortgage rates. Maine mortgage rates will be up to 0.375 points worse in price today compared to yesterday afternoon.
