Jumbo mortgage rates gave returned to the end of June levels as the mortgage bond market reacted to a weak employment report and more fear about bloated PIIGS (European government default risk). I talked about this in my Jumbo Mortgage Rates report for July 5, 2011.
I digress but I'd be remiss if I didn't tell you that today is Free Slurpee Day. Slurpees can cause Brain-Freeze. I would love to freeze today's mortgage rates for a week or so but I'm not so sure the markets will accomodate. Last week, I suggested you could hold out for lower rates; that happened. Today, I think it makes complete sense to lock-in your mortgage rate at application. While rates could trend lower, the risk of them rising another .25%...quickly, far outweighs the reward of them improving by .125%. As always, my advice may not be perfect for you so it's best to speak with your loan originator.
