Delaware mortgage rate weekly update July 2, 2012, by John Thomas
Delaware mortgage rates are still hovering at all time historic lows. The Euro Summit was held last week and Friday’s release of the news from the event moved the stock market higher and the bond market sold off. What emerged from the meeting was a concession by Germany to allow Eurozone Stability Mechanism (ESM) to help recapitalize the banks as long as they meet budgetary rules. They were also no more austerity measures to be imposed. This may seem like a solution but it is not as the ESM only has 500 Billion Euros available and Spain and Italy alone have a combined 2.4 Trillion in government debt. This deal has also upset Greece who not wants fewer austerity measures because Spain and Italy have gotten the go-ahead for the bailout without all the restrictions placed on Greece.
New Home Sales in May were at an annual rate of 369,000, up from 343,000 in April. New home inventories are getting to historically low levels as builders have cut way back on the building during the recession. Existing home inventory is not at historic lows but is declining. Housing prices are still continuing to shrink so housing has not turned the corner yet but some believe we are close to a bottom.
