Mortgage Rate Update 6/12/09

mortgage_rates2The sharp rise in mortgage rates in recent weeks has dampened what had been a boom in mortgage refinancing and has threatened to squelch signs of a budding recovery in the housing market. However, there is disagreement among Fed officials as to whether additional stimulus is needed. Some believe more should be done to help the economy recover more rapidly, while others are concerned that it may be time to start pulling back in order to minimize the risk of inflation.

Without a consensus on the direction to go, strong new actions are unlikely. However, the Fed may make smaller adjustments to address current economic conditions.
