Mortgage Rates In King of Prussia, Plymouth Meeting, Blue Bell PA: A Look Ahead the Week Of March 14,2011

Mortgage Rates In King of Prussia, Plymouth Meeting, Blue Bell PA: A Look Ahead the Week Of March 14,2011

 

Mortgage markets opened a significantly better this morning. Look for Mortgage Rates To Decline.

 

In brief, the DOW is selling off due to the turmoil in Japan. With huge repair and infrastructure costs, plus the threat of Nuclear reactors, there is a flight to quality such as US Treasuries and Mortgage Backed Securities. See the chart below show the upward trend in Mortgage Markets, spelling lower mortgage rates in the King of Prussia, Plymouth Meeting, Blue Bell and surrounding markets. How long will this last? fundamentally, markets do not support this rally. I believe it is short lived. Once Japan regains some stability, we look for focus to return to the fundamentals of the recovery and mortgage rates to reverse there upward trend.
