Delaware mortgage rates weekly update for February 20, 2012, by John R. Thomas
Delaware mortgage rates ended last week higher after some good economic news and a hot reading on inflation. The good news helped push the stock market higher pulling money out of the bond market which moved mortgage interest rates higher. The good news released last week included the following:
- Better than expected housing starts
- Weekly Jobless Claims fell by 13,000
- Retail Sales Rose in January by 0.4% – double what was expected
The Consumer Core Price Index came out much hotter than expected which is a measure of inflation. Inflation is bad for bonds as it causes the bond to lose value so rates must go up to battle inflation. The trend for rates is not on a path higher so I would recommend LOCKING your Delaware mortgage interest rate.
