Delaware mortgage rates once again set an all-time record low last week after Federal Reserve started QE3 buying of mortgage bonds. QE3 stands for Quantitative Easing Round 3 which is the Federal Reserve buying US Treasuries and Bonds to try and stimulate the economy. QE3 was announced by the Feds because the economy is still struggling and inflation is still under control. The economic news released last week was not good and helped support mortgage bonds.

The New York State Manufacturing Index registered its lowest level since April 2009 at 10.41 for September 2012. The Philly Fed Manufacturing Index contracted for a fifth straight month in a row. The Labor Department released the initial jobless claims for the week ending September 15, 2012 and it was still stubbornly high at 382,000. All of this was negative information which also helped Delaware home loan rates reach another record low on Friday.

There was some good news last week, we saw that existing home sales for August 2012 rose to a two year high.  Existing home sales jumped 7.8% to 4.82 million units for August 2012.

Congress takes another vacation and leaves without addressing a major issue for the housing market.  Senate bill S.3541 is designed to address the fact that USDA is creating maps that would exclude over 900 communities throughout the U.S. as of September 30, 2012.  No action was taken on the is bill before Senate went on vacation September 21, 2012 so call your State Senators Thomas Carper and Christopher Coons at 202-224-3121 and ask to be connected to the senator and ask them to get this bill passed as the housing market doesn’t need anything else to make it harder for families to purchase a home.
