Interest Rates, The Fed, And Your Next Mortgage

I mentioned in yesterdays Market Memo that although the Fed lowered it’s rates by 1/2% it didn’t seem to change long term mortgage interest rates.  In fact, fixed mortgage rates went higher last week.

Howard Nugent at Wells Fargo sent me two interesting articles with a little better explanation about how mortgages work and what causes the interest rates to rise and fall.  The Fed And You, and Mortgage Saga are excellent informative articles for anyone looking for a mortgage or helping someone else to find a loan on their home.
