No one is getting any younger, not even Clint Eastwood. Time marches on, as does, apparently, the cost of mailing a letter. The post office wants to jack the price of a stamp to 73 cents from 68 cents which took effect in January. But everything is politics these days, and out comes, “The Trump donor whom Biden can’t fire is running the U.S. Postal...Read More
 
Time to Hurry Up and Wait Again

Mortgage Rates Move Lower After 2-Day Rout, But Underwhelmingly So
4/12/2024 3:54 PM
Wednesday was one of the worst days in decades in terms of single-day upward movement in mortgage rates.  Thursday added a bit more insult to the injury.  The resulting levels were the highest since November 2023.  We should be thankful, then, that Friday managed to push back in the other direction, but it would be easier to be a lot...Read More

Mortgage Rates Are Actually The Highest Since Mid November
4/11/2024 3:14 PM
Wednesday"s Consumer Price Index caused a brutally fast spike in mortgage rates.  It wasn"t notable for taking us to exceptionally high levels (October 2023 was much higher), but it was one of the biggest single-day jumps.  Either way, it easily took the average lender back to highest levels since November 2023.  Today was very tame...Read More
