Interest rates are unchanged today as Goldman Sachs reported fourth quarter profits that soared above Wall Street expectations.  The Wall Street powerhouse, which has endured scrutiny over signs it was on track to pay billions of dollars in bonuses this year, earned $4.9 billion last quarter.  Their annual revenues more than doubled last year to $45.2 billion and they earned a profit of $13.4 billion in 2009.  Their biggest boost to earnings was a severe reduction in employee compensation… spending $16.2 billion (38.5% of total revenue) on wages and salaries last year.

Rates are unchanged this morning on an unexpected rise in jobless claims causing investors to sell again. A day after the Federal Reserve expressed confidence in the economy, the government said new jobless claims rose by 15,000 to 627,000 last week. The market expected a decline and stock futures fell ahead of the market’s open on Thursday. Although rising unemployment claims shouldn’t be surprising to investors since unemployment usually continues to increase even when the economy is improving, the uncertainty about when the economy will turn around. and how fast it will grow makes for rocky times in the market. The Dow average remains up 26.8 percent from its 12-year low hit on March 9, but it is down nearly 500 points, or 5.7 percent, from the five-month high it reached on June 12..

Conforming interest rates rise as pending home sales increase for the third straight month… the NAR reported that pending home sales rose 6.7% in April after a 3.2% increase in March. Homes under contract increased 32.6% in the Northeast, 9.8% in the Midwest, 1.8% in the West and only 0.2% in the South. This morning Wall Street is showing some caution after yesterday’s rally which was spurred by upbeat reports on manufacturing, construction spending and consumer spending.

Jackson Hole Mortgage Update – Jackson Hole Expert’s Report

For some interesting reading on “Record Low Mortgage Rates” go here.

Another interesting article about the New Mortgage Reform Bill.

Then there is the HOT STUFF report from T.R. Pierce at the Bank of Jackson Hole. T.R. produces this report when there is interesting and informative information about the “World of Lending”.

The more you know…
UNDERWRITING CHANGES
It would be an understatement to say that the mortgage industry is changing everyday… and so we wanted to share a couple of the more recent changes we are seeing from a couple of our secondary market investors.

RESERVE REQUIREMENTS – Some mortgage loan programs require that the borrower have sufficient liquid asset reserves to cover two (2) months principal, interest, taxes and insurance (PITI) payments at time of closing. This has always been a requirement on owner occupied conforming high balance (over $417,000 up to $625,500) loans. Now we are seeing that borrowers of second homes will be required to have two (2) months PITI reserves on all conforming loans (regardless of loan amount) and for investment homes the PITI reserve requirement is six (6) months.

Plus, the borrower will have to have two (2) months reserves for each additional financed second or investment property! The thought behind these changes appears to be an effort to insure that borrowers have sufficient reserves for their new mortgage payments.

INTERST ONLY LOANS – This week we received our first announcement of the elimination of interest only loans with one of our secondary market investors. Now, this is just one of many investors we have, but often times we see one investor make an underwriting change and then the rest of the mortgage industry follows. This change appears be an effort to give borrowers the opportunity to reduce their principal with principal and interest payments… especially in markets with declining real estate values.

It is important to note that these changes are just with a couple of our secondary market investors and we still have investors with no reserve requirements and we still have investors who offer interest only loans. Just want to keep you informed of the changes we are seeing that might have an impact on your borrower’s qualifications.

Great stuff T.R.!!! Check back later this week for our weekly Mortgage Rates Update.

Conforming interest rates are down this morning after consumer spending rose in February… rebounding for the second straight month! The Commerce Department reported that spending by individuals rose 0.2% last month after a revised increase of 1.0% in January. Some economists feel that “the majority of the declines in consumer consumption are behind us” and another indication that the economy may be improving is the 20% gain in stocks Wall Street has enjoyed in last three weeks!

We saw a piece of vacant land go under contract! We also heard of a contemporary townhome that went under contract! Great news…

Interest rates are unchanged again this morning after the National Association of Realtors reported that existing home sales dropped 5.3% last month. January sales were the lowest since July 1997 as potential buyers were waiting for clarity and certainty of the housing stimulus package. The national median home price was $170,300 in January and the number of homes on the market decreased to 3.6 million. The drop in total inventory is encouraging because at the current sales rate, it would take an estimated 9.6 months to sell the existing homes inventory.
