Rate Update From Cathy Haddad and Atlantic Home Loans

We just received this note from Cathy Haddad, a mortgage broker with Atlantic Home Loans.

The 10-year bond dropped below 2% this week as a result of poor economic data from
Europe, China and the US. Additionally, and almost hard to believe, the world financial
markets are rattled by the potential economic implications of a spreading Ebola virus.
Crazy that Ebola is actually affecting bond and mortgage rates! Let me share with you
the way I see it: While the economic data clearly doesn’t present a rosy picture, most
of that economic risk (and downward interest rate pressure) is now built into bond and
mortgage rates. This means that we are unlikely to see rates drop further in the near
term based purely on economic data.

Rates Rate Update From Cathy Haddad and Atlantic Home Loans

What’s my message? Take advantage of recently released economic data and ‘‘the
world is ending” hysteria and lock in your mortgage rate now. While rates have been
low for quite some time, this recent cratering of mortgage rates is providing you with
what may be one last opportunity to refinance your mortgage. My message is the same
to those looking to buy a home: find a home and lock in what may be the lowest rates
you’ll ever see. NOW is the time icon smile Rate Update From Cathy Haddad and Atlantic Home Loans

Are Interest Rates on the Move?

homeloans 300x142 Are Interest Rates on the Move?There are five influences on US mortgage rates in the current market.   First, the Federal Reserve continues to reduce (taper) it purchases of US Treasuries and Mortgage Backed Securities.  The question moving forward is – What will the Fed do with its portfolio of Treasuries and Mortgages?  If the Fed redeploys the proceeds from mortgage amortization and payoffs from their portfolio of mortgage backed securities, mortgage rates will continue to stay low.  However,  if the Fed allows their portfolio to shrink, rates will move higher.   Announcements regarding the size and speed of reducing the Fed’s portfolio is going to be key to how fast mortgage rates will rise.

Second, the European Central Bank and the Bank of Japan have embarked on a quantitative easing of their own.   As a result, longer term US Treasury securities are relatively more attractive to foreign investors than German or Japanese 10 year bonds.   As long as European and Japanese growth is sluggish, the US Treasury market, and by association the US mortgage backed securities market will be supported by foreign buying.  This may provide the cover for the Federal reserve to reduce their holding of US Treasuries and mortgage backed securities without rates moving significantly higher.

Third, tensions between the Ukraine and Russia have helped the US Bond market in a “flight to quality” move.   The flight to quality has kept US rates relatively low in the face of moderately strong economic data.   Movement of Russian troops send rates lower, signs of peace send rates higher.

Fourth, the day to day release of US economic data continues to move the markets.   If the data continues to suggest stronger economic growth in the US, markets will likely react by moving rates higher in advance of a perceived conclusion that the Fed will allow its portfolio to run off faster.

Finally, a low Federal Funds rate has been supportive to hedge funds who buy US treasury and mortgage backed securities and borrow short term money to create a spread.   Over the past few year, the Federal Reserve has broadcast the Fed Funds rate would remain near zero for “quite some time.”   Recently, Federal reserve members have been speaking publicly regarding the likely timing of increases in the Fed Funds.   Speculation about the timing and speed of hikes in the Fed Funds Rate will provoke hedge fund sales of mortgage backed securities and therefore move mortgage rates higher.

With 30 year fixed rates at or around +-4.25%, all eyes are on the Federal Reserve and the release of economic data for clues about the size of the Fed’s portfolio, the disposition of that portfolio, and the timing of hikes in the Fed Funds Rate.

Full 2014 NJ School Rankings Are Out! Where does your town fall?

Top Schools JPEG 300x219 Full 2014 NJ School Rankings Are Out! Where does your town fall?Education in NJ continues to receive accolades as back-to-school time is upon us and the latest publication of the New Jersey Monthly ranking of the 339 public high schools in the state has been released. Click here to see complete listing.

After thorough analysis of the data in obtained by the NJ Department of Education from the 2012-2013 school year, schools in the Sue Adler Team territory are well represented in the top tier. Coming in at #1 overall is Chatham High School with #5 Millburn, #6 New Providence, #16 Livingston, #21 Westfield appearing in the elite top 25. Further regional academic excellence is apparent with #32 Madison, #36 Governor Livingston (Berkeley Heights) and #37 Summit achieving high scores along with Columbia High School (South Orange/Maplewood) with a strong showing in the top 100 as well.

Results were calculated based on review of 9 distinct categories including Grade 12 Enrollment, Student/Faculty Ratio, # of AP and IB Subjects Offered, % of Students Taking At Least 1 AP or IB Test, % Scoring 1550 Or Higher On the SAT, % Scoring Advance Proficient on HSPA Combined Tests, % of AP Tests Resulting in Score of 3+ or IB of 4+, Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate and the % Enrolled in College 16 Months After High School.

This year’s rankings showed significant movement from prior years due to some key changes in methodology. Rather than just report a school’s average SAT scores, the DOE now calculates the percentage of students scoring 1,550 or better, a benchmark that it says is “associated with a high likelihood of college success.” The 2014 study has also added the postsecondary enrollment rate; the percentage of students enrolled in a two or four year college 16 months after high school graduation. Also, for the first time, this year’s analysis includes information on International Baccalaureate (IB) testing. New Jersey has 14 IB schools, each offering the same rigorous curriculum used by more than 3,700 IB schools around the world.

Two additional factors used in prior studies were eliminated: average class size (which is no longer available from the DOE) and the percentage of faculty with advanced degrees. They also stopped compiling separate rankings by District Factor Group, a classification based on a district’s relative socioeconomic status ta statistic no longer included in the DOE reports.

This New Jersey Monthly bi-yearly study, combined with a recent report conducted by a finance website called Wallethub concluding that New Jersey has the best school systems in all of the United States (using data from a number of sources, including the U.S. Census Bureau, the National Center for Educational Statistics and the Institute of Museum and Library Services) speaks volumes about the home values in sought after, high ranking districts.
