“Mortgage rates have been rising since the first of the year. “Too low” is completely relative.”
They can try to mask these cuts in terms of rate increases all they want; the fact is that whereas before you had new sales and refinances, much of the mortgage business is ONLY refis now because no sane American who feels they can’t afford a family has any reason to buy a house. In other words, this is more related to the drop in our standard of living/financial security than mortgage rates.
A lot of amnesty is tied to replacing the Americans that will never buy a home or have schoolchildren; rather than let the socialist toilets become ghost towns a la Detroit, they’re simply importing a whole new replacement population of homeowners and schoolchildren (basically consumers, not workers).
I’m not going to refinance until the rate drops to -.25%. That is my target.
