Exclamation mortgage rate predictions? 11/7 and 11/8

I jsut bought myself a house

But I am kind of struggling to decide what to do with my mortgage... as far as locking in a rate, etc...

This week - 11/4 11/5 11/6 rates have jumped slightly from 4.5% to 4.75% and now 4.85%...

The next 2 days - Thurs/Fri 11/7 and 11/8 the following reports are going to come out:

Thursday:
Jobless claims
Consumer credit reports

Friday:
BLS employment report
Personal income reports
Finally, inflations reports.

These all have a chance to move mortgage rates...

So for the people that know way more about these reports and the predictions, or mortgage knowledge - Please chime in!!

Need to take care of this ASAP... as it is wednesday 11/6 at 3:45pm EST.

Congrats on your house ... but if you bought it don't you already have a mortgage locked in? Or you just entered escrow, and are looking for a loan?

Generally I consider the house bought on the closing day...

No idea about your rates question. I left the crystal ball in my other pants this morning when I went to work at my orange stand...

Should stay steady within .1, .2 for the next week or two.

As long as the government keeps pouring $85,000,000,000 a month into the bond market, they aren't going to spike one way or the other.

Now if in the next day, talks of "taper" start, expect to see a huge spike upward.

Yes, I guess i did not tech "buy" it yet... I just entered escrow and am looking for a loan. This is my first home purchase.

And i know rates are very hard to predict, and obviously, if we could all predict them, then what would be the point? But looking for any help or insight I can get...

I was just being facetious - I just have no idea myself, but there are others who can make reasonable educated guesses. I'm just not one of them.

It's a tough choice especially on a first time purchase; that being said, a quarter of a percentage point either direction isn't going to make a huge difference on your monthly mortgage payment.

Good luck though -- it's definitely an exciting time and a new chapter!

not something i pay much attention to anymore, but i don't think there will be a significant change for your window. but you can save a lot on interest if you take a 15yr fixed instead of 30yr, and make sure there's no prepayment penalty.

most important thing is to pay it off asap, life's pretty easy when the house is squared away

I don't see a catalyst for lower rates at this point so the sooner you lock, the better. If they go down more than 1/4pt during your lock, you can usually adjust to that new rate.
