Interest Rates in Overland Park and Lees Summit have been improving over the last week. The Bond auctions are going farely well thus far this week. However Mortgage Backed Securities are up against a tough layer of resistance. This could keep rates from moving much lower in the  near term. If you haven’t refinanced yet now is an opportune time to get locked in on a no cost refinance and take advantage of these low rates. Contact Curtis Schartz your Certified Mortgage Planner to find out about refinancing your home.

Today’s interest rates for the Kansas City and Lees Summit Market are moving lower. There was a strong foreign participation in today’s 30 yr bond auction. With the well received auction Mortgage Backed Securities have rallied back today. Currently we have a floating bias as the Mortgage Backed Securities test resistance at the 25 day moving average. All in all this is good news for marginally lower rates. With all of the auctions over for the next couple of weeks we could see rates move a little lower. Stay tuned in this volatile market. The tide can change quickly. As your Certified Mortgage Planner with Pulaski Bank I will keep a watch on it for you.

Thanks – Curtis Schartz

As your Certified Mortgage Planner in Lees Summit and Overland Park I am here to help guide you through the turbulent Mortgage Market and help you to get the best interest rate. Today Mortgage Backed Securities are moving with great volatility. They have already traded in an 82 basis point range. Current direction for rates is lower attempting to stabilize. Today the ADP employment report missed the mark to the low side fueling the volatility and helping bonds to rebound from the lows of the day. Additionally the ISM services index also came in worse then expected helping to support an improvement in bonds. The economy and job scene is not out of the woods yet. Poor economic news will cause the bonds markets to rise which leads to lower interest rates. The opposite is also true – positive economic news will cause bonds to fall and lead to higher interest rates.
